dear !, I am really sorry about your brain surgery, and can I ask if it was caused by an accident, but I know that this would definitely cause you many problems, because I can relate to this as I was assaulted and suffered brain damage back in '83, but it certainly doesn't sound nearly as serious as what you have been through.
There are so many repercussions from any brain injury that always seems to put us two steps behind everyone else, and since you had the operation almost a year ago, there is so much for you to overcome and try and learn on how to cope with this operation.
I really would like you to get back to me. L Geoff. x
