Ron, who struggles with short-term memory loss following a ruptured aneurysm, told Metro Online: "I remember things for five to seven days maximum and that unfortunately is my life.
"It gets to 8pm and I lose track of what I have done, even in the course of the day."
Ron also took the opportunity to thank Headway for providing him with a Headway Brain Injury Identity Card.
He said: "For me, the card acts as conformation of my brain injury. It helps others to understand some of the challenges I face if I'm in a vulnerable situation."
Metro Online also spoke to Donna Siggers, publishing her story as part of the 'You Don't Look Sick' series which shares the experiences of those living with a hidden disability.
Donna was assaulted in 2014 whilst at work, leaving her unable to remember the names of simple everyday items.
Within the article, Donna said: "Having to live without a memory has possibly been the most frustrating process I’ve experienced.
"Invisible illness is under-represented and therefore misunderstood. Education is vital, in my opinion but in order for this to change it has to be recognised at a government level that the acts in place are not working for the majority of the people affected."Back
