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
