Been wired up! (02/03/2020)

With my Support Worker Claire I attended the Leicester Royal Infirmary to undergo a forty-eight-hour EEG to investigate abnormal activity in my brain.

The instructions received from the specialised medics was to carry on with my normal activities so that the resulting data collected may be used to help with future treatment programme.
On Day One I attended the meeting of the Citizens’ Advisory Panel at Braunstone Town Council with Support Worker Dipak and on day two I was back on track by attending the gym with Support Worker Claire.

Week Ending 16th February 2020

Saturday, 15 February 2020

This week has been a challenging week.

Living with a brain injury disability is very challenging on a daily basis. 
One of the most frustrating aspects is when I cannot recall what I was doing a very short time ago. It’s very time consuming to repeatedly refer back to CCTV and audio recordings to establish what I was doing a very short while ago. My home and outbuildings are covered by internal and external CCTV and audio recording equipment, the recordings happen 24/7/365. It’s my way of trying to manage the best way I can.

In addition, I wear tracking equipment which can be remotely tracked by Leicestershire Police and other agencies in the event I become lost or missing.  I frequently forget what I was doing and find myself in places and situations that I never had any intention of being or able to provide a reasonable explanation of how I came to be there. Thankfully I can be remotely when the need arises.

My name is David Di Palma, I’m a Survivor, If I can do it, you can do it.
