Craig speaks about the impact of his head and spinal injuries on life 10 years later. He provides insight into the ongoing difficulties with memory, speech, and fatigue, and shares his coping skills. Keeping a diary and taking photos is really helpful to Craig, and he’s a strong believer in the healing power of a cup of tea!
We hear about what is important to Craig, and what keeps him moving forward. This includes his home restoration projects, travelling, his relationship, and connection with friends and family. Craig is motivated by challenging others’ expectations, and he has now got multiple different driving licenses (he’s back on a motorbike and also driving an HGV). He is also learning to fly a helicopter!
