Rosie Raju - A New Me

Rosie Raju

Don’t blame yourselves and get help. We are survivors.

Please tell us about your brain injury

Left side brain damage, crushed skull and fracture. Car accident when bus hit the car. Age 8 years. In a coma for 21 days.

What message do you want to send to people through your creative work?

Don’t blame yourselves and get help. We are survivors. Learn to accept it, and that life will get harder and people will not understand, especially family, but you are not alone. Don’t feel ashamed.

What does A New Me mean to you?

It means finding ways to cope with the disability, and the anger and knowing how strong you are and ways to deal with it. Being alone and feeling isolated and neglected.

Are you involved with a Headway group or branch? How have they helped you?

Yes – Headway Bradford. I’ve been able to meet other people with brain injuries and see how it has affected them, and know that I’m not the only one. I’ve been able to get advice and practical support.
