Paul Simpson Posted October 7, 2018 Share Posted October 7, 2018 On the 11/11/2014 at 9.15 a.m. my changed life began. I was teaching my BTEc group at sixth form centre when something went horribly wrong with my head. I only know what followed by speaking to family and friends. Staff colleagues who were trained knew something was wrong. They rang for an ambulance, when it arrived they radioed an air ambulance. I went to the Trauma Department at Queens Medical Centre at Nottingham. I had surgery and my family were told I wouldn't last through the night. I caught pneumonia and infection and was in a coma. Everyone tried different things to get me to recover favourite songs, poems and pictures of Heather(wife), Emily(daughter) and Joe(son). Four weeks passed and my Derby County songs brought me back.This was a bit embarrassing in Nottingham. Three months later and I visited work in a wheelchair to thank the students for raising money for the air ambulance service. Five months later back a day a week at work. I have had OT SLT and counselling and 4 years later I am starting to talk about it. Paul Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
