My name is Terry, I suffered a workplace accident in July 2015, which left me with life changing injuries. As well as the physical injuries I also suffer from severe PTSD and depression as a result. It's these (silent injuries) that are the worst to cope with its like losing your identity, you are not the person you were before. I have been lucky by having the support of my GP and counsellor but most of all my wife. Without this support I wouldn't be where I am today. But other sufferers aren't so lucky- they suffer in silence with nobody to turn to. So now I have focused my life on helping sufferers to get help. I want to raise money to get a charity off the ground to provide a centre where people can go and tell their story and receive help and support. I made it through with the local Wellbeing Scheme which is a referral from professionals to my local gym Impulse Leisure which is also a charity. This has changed my perspective on life - it has given me hope again and that is what I want to give to other sufferers in the same position..... Let's not suffer in silence - Be Brave, Be Strong, Be You Again

Terry, you don't know me, but I've seen you working really hard at the gym, and mate hats off to you, you put the rest of us to shame. It's a great cause and I'm sure you can do it.
