Now then in terms of appointments in Talbot, I had a weekly consult with a psychiatrist. She asked me all sorts of questions about how my week has been both physically, but mainly mentally.
I’d always tell her what I was up to – after my TBI I find it almost impossible to lie! I would always tell her when I had gone out, who with and where to.

After a couple of months, my psychiatrist asked me whether I realised that I was an alcoholic? I distinctly remember saying to her that if she came and worked in Glasgow then she’d think virtually every single person was one…
