Headway: Hear Zalehka's Story

Updated: Aug 12, 2019

Headway Cardiff & South East Wales gave me a new lease of life.




Headway Cardiff & South East Wales gave me a new lease of life. When I rang them

crying because I didn’t know what was happening to me, they introduced me to two social groups.


The first on a Tuesday morning at Pedal Power, adapted bikes for all disabilities to help with your physical rehab and also a good laugh with friends. The second, Thursday afternoons in Chapter for a social coffee group.


I’ve made some real life time friends at Headway and it’s all thanks to them and my “brainy friends” that I’m here and it has helped me as a person.

The first time I went was a Thursday (and this happens every time either in hospital, doctors meetings or even while at this group I cry) I feel I’m accepted, they understand how I feel. I don’t have to explain myself, why it’s so hard to walk one day or how one day my speech is better than the other, or the simple fact I’m so scared of stairs. Can you blame me? They completely get it because they are going through the exact same as I am.
