My uncle's brain damage
My name is Nirvana, and I live in a family of 6. I'm about to turn 16 and I have been a young carer since my mum and dad first got together, which is about 8 years now.
My dad’s brother has brain damage. Somebody punched him in the back of the head. This left him in a Coma for a while. When he woke up his first memory was fishing and catching Big Marlins. Since then we care for him, my two little brothers, my mum, my dad and I.
We are trying to make him have the life he should have had. Having brain damage is hard for him as he sometimes forgets things, even the simplest things, but he is still very smart. He loves doing puzzle books, which helps test his brain.
He goes down every year to see his mother, in Perth. He flys down every few months.
We all hope for the best as he has made it this far. He is now 51 years old, and still has a few years left in him.
Thank you for reading my story!
