Web Pages

Other pages about people's strokes and brain injuries:

  • Terri Horne's homepage - Terri's not an oldster either but she had a stroke in December 1996, and a lot worse than mine. She was in a coma for a couple of weeks and in hospital for over half a year so her road to recovery has been a lot more interesting than mine.
  • Jane Lapotaire - the actor, had a brain haemorrhage two years before me and she's written a book Out of Mind about her experiences, which this article in The Guardian discusses. It rang a lot of bells, although she's obviously had a much rougher time than me.
  • Rik Mayall - had an accident with a quad bike which resulted in him fracturing his skull and haemorrhaging in two places. He now suffers from tonic clonic seizures and is on phenytoin. I found this interview, written not long afterwards, interesting as it identifies things I'm very familiar with, for example: not drinking, using the wrong words, and problems concentrating if there was more than one stimulus in the room.
