Inside my brain

On the first of August, 2010, I went cycling and got hit by a car at 40mph. I suffered a severe traumatic brain injury, several skull fractures, a broken eye socket, broken nose, broken teeth, a dislocation of the hip that my orthopaedic surgeon describes as “almost a traumatic amputation”, and badly battered knees and ankles. I’m lucky to still be here.

Here’s some quite trippy views of the inside of my head and my body.
