Early Recovery


The work condolences section (see link) contains the email notifications from my former work colleagues making others aware of my 'disappearance'.  There are further email exchanges I engaged in during the lead-up to me returning to work at the Metropolitan Police Service.


The hospital rehabilitation section (see link) contains the daily diary entries I made while at the Haywood Hospital.


The anxiety section (see link) contains notes I made in preparation for meeting with my rehabilitation consultant.​


The acceptance section (see link) contains my thoughts on how I managed any frustration I may have been susceptible to.  I focussed on the positives - I still had in my life, and the love / support of family and close friends.


The discharge early days section (see link) is a random set of thoughts and diary entries in the first few months after my discharge from the rehabilitation unit.
