Whether you have deliberately searched for the site or just happened upon it by chance, a very warm welcome to My Broken Brain.

After suffering from a rare form of encephalitis (NMDA-r) back in June 2011, I have been trying to piece my life back together again. Getting my thoughts and feelings down in black and white for the world to see has been a huge release and enabled me to obtain some closure on the past few year’s events.

second-peacock-puzzleSuffering alone can make you feel isolated and distressed, having other people who ‘get you’ can be more important than anything else. So, if just one person can read something I have written and say, “I’m not alone”, I will feel like I have fulfilled what I set out to do.

And so, My Broken Brain was born.

If you are looking for some facts about brain injuries and what help is out there be sure to check out my recourses section, where I have compiled a list of useful facts, organisations and blogs.

If you are after a spot of reading, my blog tends to give an interesting twist on what life is like with a brain injury.

If you would like to contact me, my details can be found in the contact section.

Thank you for all your love and support in helping me to piece my life back together again after encephalitis. Without you none of this would be possible.

  1. Right on point! Thanks for your bravery! My daughter was struck with Anti-NMDA r encephalitis in August of 2013. I hope I can get ideas and tips from your experiences. Thanks.

  2. Hi Liz
    Our daughter age 33 has just come out of an induced coma and is still very ill with NMDA encephalitis. Your website has given us hope and understanding as some of the things happening are identical to yours. Did you still have tremours when you came out of the coma? Our daughter has facial tremours and we do not know how her speech is because of the recent tracheotomy. Hoping to hear from you and well done, you are an inspiration to fellow suffers and their families. Best wishes. Christine

  3. Hello, my 15 year old daughter is currently in the hospital and tested positve for NMDA. This week has been the most traumatic in our lives…she had responded exceptionally well to IVIG and Methyl Prednisolone…and continues to be treated for the symptoms…hopeful for a continued up hill climb. We would love to contact you at a later stage so she knows she is not alone…
