Burns Survivors Forum
Burns Survivor's Forum
Survivors Forum, a great idea!
I was burnt 30 years ago, and until last year I thought that
I had handled my recuperation and rehabilitation very well. Then
I started researching the psychological effects of my Burns accident on
myself and my family, with some surprising (to me) results.
This affected me greatly, and explained a lot of things that
I did, and didn't do, in the first few years after the Burns. Such
things as virtually isolating myself from various clubs and
organisations with which I had previously been very active.
So, I decided
to do this web-site, telling the whole story, publicly.
The writing of the various
pages has helped so much, that I have progressively felt as though an
invisible weight had been lifted from me.
I'm now cutting down on
anti-depressants (so far reduced by 1/3), and am feeling pretty good,
so I'm thinking about eliminating them altogether,
profession has known for some time that serious
burns victims could have psychological problems, especially in the
early days following a serious burn, and certain recommendations
regarding treatment were made.
The trouble is that these
recommendations have been only recently, but not fully, implemented, so
it has been left up to us, the Burns Victims, to turn ourselves around
and become Burns Survivors.
