today,the new padded helmet [prescribed this time] FINALLY arrived from hospital,it had only been sent out this week.
surprisingly though,it wasnt the illuminous stand out one had expected from them,it was a quality puma rugby helmet:

the neuros had told us the hospital has never dealt with specialist helmets before,and these are hard to come by in the UK as they were mostly phased out.
but they use rugby helmets for epileptics/challenging behavior on the wards,which are actualy better in a lot of ways as they are more surrounding and protective and not as standoutish.
neuro is also coming to visit next week,though am seeing pyschologist same day so dont have to, as neuro only has to see staff.
