Norfolk woman says she is a different person after brain injury – ITV News

A woman from Thetford in Norfolk who suffered a brain aneurysm two years ago is speaking out in support of a new study that’s looked at how people feel after suffering a brain injury.

Fiona Linge collapsed a coupe of weeks after her 50th Birthday. She spent six months in hospital.

The charity Headway has found that 74% of survivors felt like a new person, often experiencing personality changes.

“I don’t think I’m a different person, but things are different. It’s like I have to forget the old me before this happened.”

Fiona told ITV News Anglia that her favourite colour is no longer green, she doesn’t like chocolate anymore, but has developed a new taste for organes.
