But then a bang on the head changed everything. While dancing at a wedding, Rosie fell and hit her head, and subsequently had two cerebral haematomas, or brain bleeds. These have left her with a permanent brain injury that has turned her life upside down. Now unable to pursue her professional career, she struggles with permanent disorientation and dizziness, memory loss, extreme visual and aural sensitivity, constant tiredness, pain and difficulty controlling her emotions. Just a Bang on the Head offers a searingly honest and moving insight into the world of brain injury. The physical effects are clearly articulated, as are the emotional impacts - the often devastating effect on relationships, the huge sense of loss and grief as a previous life disappears, and the constant humiliation of being stymied in your everyday life.
