took a lot of
getting used to, a lot of adapting to things,
and things like that,
but another thing that I
used to help me get through day to day
was just trying to work on one little thing.
And for me, obviously I had so many tubes
and wires coming out of me,
so I decided that tomorrow I need to try and get
the one that's feeding me out of my stomach
so that I can eat properly in my mouth.
To eat in my mouth I needed to be able to get
the wires taken out, and things like that,
so we all kind of linked in.
That I just wanted to,
to get on with life, was by breaking it down step by step.
And I think, luckily, in a way,
I've always been quite a good, quite a fast healer,
just by what injuries I've had,
so, kinda stood me in good stead for
for being in Birmingham.
And as well, in the ward that you're on in Birmingham
it's a, pretty much a military only ward.
So, again you're in hospital with
other guys who have come through the same thing.
So, it's good to have that military,
the banter, you can have a bit of
camaraderie, you can have that.
There's like a community,
so, you kind of helping each other through.
Even though it's such an early stage
when you can't even do a lot 'cause you're bedbound
or you can't move and anything else
but you can have that help each other out,
and stuff like that.
I think it's a massive help
having the military ward in Birmingham.
