I’ve just applied for a Headway Brain Injury Card as I think it will be useful when dealing with people in stressful situations. It allows you to display four main issues you may have as a result of stroke. It doesn’t cost anything, and I wanted to share the link for people who might not be aware of this.
My main issues I put down were:
Obsessive compulsive (this applies to having lack of impulse control)
So, I think, for me, this covers everything I may experience in a hectic public place or bureaucratic situation. I got it not for any legal reasons, as I would never even dare litter. Nor do I think it will get me into exclusive bars and restaurants, but you never know what circumstance this fairly point blank disclosure may come in handy.
Headway explains that the card can be used in all scenarios, see below.
"I have never come into contact with the police – is this card for me?
Absolutely! The card can be used in many different everyday social scenarios to help you access any support you may need."
