Every year, 8,500 people in the UK will have a subarachnoid haemorrhage, of whom about 50 per cent will survive this traumatic brain injury which often occurs without warning. Survivors can make a 'good' neurological recovery but the psychosocial impact can be longer lasting. Drawing from her own experience of surviving a subarachnoid haemorrhage, together with other people's journeys of recovery and recent research findings, Alison Wertheimer covers: * themes of recovery * leaving neurocare and early days of recovery * looking for help * physical, sensory and cognitive effects * the emotional impact of subarachnoid haemorrhage * the survivor's relationship with family and friends * returning to work * what helped the survivors with their recovery * subarachnoid haemorrhage as a life-changing event. A Dented Image will be of interest to a wide-ranging audience: survivors and their families and friends; health professionals working with people recovering from acute brain injury in hospital and community-based services including doctors, nurses, psychologists, physiotherapists, occupational therapists and other members of rehabilitation teams. It may also be of interest to people recovering from other traumatic illnesses or injuries.
