Out of Critical Care: 25.09.2015
Back at Work: 24.07.2017
I returned to doing IT security consultancy for the Metropolitan Police Service in London, where I had last been in professional employment in July 2015. Following this link will take you to a nerdy document I wrote after a few weeks back at work. I've included the document here as I feel it illustrates I had retained my professional skills, despite my "life skills" being vastly depleted following my TBI and then two years of professional absenteeism.
You may ask “What changed?” I have given this a lot of thought and pondered endlessly, my hugely insightful response is: “I dunno”
Still Not Ready for Professional Employment: 24.05.2017
The email snippet below (to Peter) is from May 2017 in response to being asked if I was in a position to consider returning to my former position as an IT security consultant with the Metropolitan Police Service in London. This exchange was twenty-two months after my TBI, my response evidences that I still didn’t feel I was in a fit state to return to work.
Arranging a Visit by an ex-Colleague: 13.10.2015
In October 2015 I was thinking I'd be back in the swing before too long, arranging a first hospital visit with a friend and ex-colleague (Phil Dear). Follow the link for some flippant emails between myself and Phil prior to our meeting up.
