On my 25th birthday, I suffered a brain haemorrhage. Thankfully I survived and as part of my recovery, I spent 15 long months in a rehabilitation hospital in Dun Laoghaire. When I entered the rehab hospital, I could not walk, talk, and my right arm was completely paralysed.
I was offered the chance to leave the hospital by my doctor on the condition I spent 6 months in the National Learning Network in Tralee.
This would specifically prepare me to go back to work. I was keen to leave the hospital in Dun Laoghaire so decided to relocate to Tralee.
I moved to Tralee in 1996. After two weeks, I knew I would never go back to Dublin because I loved Tralee so much. It was so peaceful, far removed from the hustle and bustle of Dublin.
The rehab in Tralee did an excellent job in preparing me to re-enter the workplace. I made an almost full recovery, the only thing that I didn’t get back to full use was my right wrist.
Moreover, my language was adversely affected and that’s why my English is poor on this website but I try to explain everything as clearly as I can. I want to thank my wife & friends that will give me a hand before I post anything. I am working in the public sector for the past 22 years now.
I hope you enjoy my website and it gives you plenty of things to do.
