DLB says he initially didn’t show much improvement and “doctors ordered me to turn off my brain in hopes it would heal.” He says Tom took him to the Greek Islands this week to make him forget his mind.
Dustin posted a ton of photos of himself and Tom in Greece… and he says the trip is a step in the right direction towards what “has been a tough and scary time for a creative guy who depends on what he there is in his skull to work, care and love.”
Although Dustin doesn’t specify how he suffered a brain injury… he was allegedly hit in the head last month during an altercation with Teddy Edwardes in a gay bar in London.
Dustin says his road to recovery will be “long”…but he seems optimistic about what lies ahead.
