It's been around 6 years since my coma, we should remember that recovery is extremely slow and you must encourage it through repetition. This is what I learnt during my recovery. I have tried walking without a stick on and off since coming back to Singapore 5 years ago. By this repetition my walking has... Continue Reading →


Dear fellow coma victims, the American Superbowl provoked media about concussion. Something other codes of sport like Australian Rules Football and Rugby Union are also taking seriously. A star American footballer said not to play the game to avoid the brain damage caused. The doctor who treated that player said brain damage caused by concussion... Continue Reading →


Dear fellow coma victims, at a favorite restaurant in Thailand I had a regular dish, mussels in a white wine sauce with lots of garlic and considered the taste. I was eating large chunks of garlic but couldn't discern the flavor. The texture yes as it's one of my favorite things about food. The garlic... Continue Reading →

After about a year of not being able to walk without my stick because of so many ups and downs I'm trying again to leave it at home, feeling more confident this time. I think the new pathways in the brain to... Continue Reading →


My wife has provided me no end of support through my recovery from coma, and now I'm a partner in our business.

Not really pain but a... Continue Reading →


Dear fellow coma victims, determination doesn't amount to much without the detail. While being determined to walk again you must also do so correctly. There are so many subtleties to walking that have been forgotten by the brain as it builds a new pathway and these too must be relearned. I just try to copy... Continue Reading →


Well it's time to return to the main point for this blog, but haven't I recovered from coma? We must always think of our walking if that's the part of the brain affected. From my personal experience these things only improve through determination. Actually I'm quite determined to maintain this blog which seems to be... Continue Reading →


There are several posts here by the title, 'recovery', this might be the last. I now have a date for my recovery from coma, my father's funeral 30/7/2017. It would have been unthinkable during my time in hospital for me to write and delivery a speech to so many people and also to try and... Continue Reading →
