Hey I’m Craig and not long found this website I would like to share my story as I find it helpful to talk about it. 

In August 2019 I suffered serious burns through my own silly fault, 70% burns and need several surgeries, multiple transfusions, and a month in intensive care dying twice, after a 9 week stay in hospital I was ready for discharge although I still needed frequent dressing changes (not many though and only mepilex plasters), I’m now just waiting to be measured and fitted for pressure garments (23rd I get measured 😊). This is a brief overview of what I have been through and if there is any questions feel free to ask I’m open and find it better for myself to talk about my accident.

Hope to hear from some of you soon.

Hi Craig – nice to hear from you and sorry to hear about your accident.  I also suffered burns  – 43% back in 2002.  There is an on-line live chat tonight from 7.30-9pm… come on and join in if you would like.  I’ll be on tonight so there to chat.  Am 17 years down the line so have been through a lot of what you are going through now.  Best, Polski
