I fell to the floor and as I came back into consciousness there was a pool of blood from my head down to my knees around me, I couldn’t open one of my eyes and my pupil in that eye wasn’t responding.
“I have very limited sense of smell and my breathing is not great, this could take up to 12 months to be back to normal. I would not wish this trauma on anybody, it’s changed me as a person completely.
