I have brain damage and sometimes forget I have limbs and genuinely cant find, feel or use them.

How did you start drumming?
Went through a rather distressing time battling insomnia,depression and paranoia and then my father walked out on me leaving me to care for my paraplegic mother. Ended up at therapy and they put me on music therapy and became a drummer. Its saved my life (literally) and resulted in me off the meds etc. Only things that make me happy are making others happy, my beautiful fiance and new snares.
