My wife has been through a lot after my brain injury.

A Q&A with brain injury survivor Terence Berritt.

What makes you happy?

My wife, she's one in a million.

What is your proudest moment?

Three months after my surgery I made it my project to sort the garden out and give it a makeover. My wife says I've done an amazing job.

Who in your life understands your brain injury best?

My wife, what a gem.

What is the most frustrating thing about your brain injury?

Having little tiffs with my wife, she has been through a lot after my injury.

How has headway helped you?

Headway has helped me regain some confidence which I was lacking.

What is the most important lesson life has taught you?

To make the most of it, life is not guaranteed.

Have there been any positives to come from your brain injury?

Being alive is the most positive aspect after having two seizures and an atrial fibrillation (fast or irregular heartbeat) I'm still here!

What advice would you give to fellow brain injury survivors?

It's very frustrating and exhausting at times but be patient with yourself – it’s hard but doable.
