    Back on the Bike

    37:10

    The doctors are saying they want me to go back to work…gradually. But I’m not sure. I’ve lost my confidence. My brain injury rehab specialist says we won’t know until we try. He means I won’t actually recover properly until I go back to work. The neurons that fire together, wire together – he keeps saying. See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

    There's Science to This

    21:56

    I’m depressed and anxious and the headaches are back. I have to dose myself up on nature again. I wouldn’t have considered heading into the bush alone before the accident. But now I’m known for turning up to school pick-ups in shorts and hiking boots. But why has no doctor told me to use nature? Or even encouraged me really?Production creditsWriter and producer: Sarah AllelyCo-Producer: Olivia RosenmanSound design: Ariana Martinez See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

    Invisible Injury

    29:59

    I’m racing towards the finish line. I’m almost better! I try to get back to my normal life, but something’s still not quite right. And then, all of a sudden, things start to unravel. Surely this isn’t happening. I’m nearly better, remember? I find Cait Ward, who had similar experiences after being hit with a lacrosse ball.Production creditsWriter and producer: Sarah Allely Co-Producer: Olivia RosenmanSound design: Ariana Martinez See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

    If Symptoms Persist, Accept

    24:32

    Finally, I get a diagnosis. The doctors tell me I have what they’re calling ‘a mild traumatic brain injury’. And there’s not much that they can do about it. They encourage me to just accept my situation. Then, some friends invite me on a bushwalk.Production creditsWriter and producer: Sarah Allely Co-Producer: Olivia RosenmanSound design: Ariana Martinezhttps://brainonnature.com/2019/09/09/episode-3-if-symptoms-persist-accept/ See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

    The Waiting Room

    32:08

    The injury makes me reflect on what the load on my brain was like before the accident. I’m a journalist, my head’s full of work. I manage our household, wrangle our kids – they’re two and five years old. We don’t have any other family in Australia. My partner’s frantic running his arts organisation. I still keep a busy social life. I love late nights out in hectic loud bars drinking with friends. But after the accident I can’t do any of this!Production creditsWriter and producer: Sarah Allely Co-Producer: Olivia RosenmanSound design: Ariana Martinezhttps://brainonnature.com/2019/09/09/episode-2-the-waiting-room/ See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

    The Accident

    18:01

    I wake up on the road in intense pain. I don’t know what’s happened. Who are these people? Where am I? Why is my right shoulder killing me? But it’s only when I get home from the hospital that the extent of my injuries start to emerge. I can’t read, I can listen to music, I can’t be around my family.
