DLB says he initially wasn’t showing much improvement and “doctors ordered me to shut off my brain in hopes of it healing.” He says Tom took him to the Greek islands this week to make him shut off his mind.
Dustin posted a ton of photos of him and Tom in Greece … and he says the trip is a step in the right direction to what “has been a challenging, frightening time for a creative type who depends on what’s in his skull to work, care and love.”
While Dustin does not elaborate on how he suffered a brain injury … he was reportedly punched in the head last month during an altercation with Teddy Edwardes at a London gay bar.
Dustin says his road to recovery will be “long” … but he sounds optimistic about what’s ahead.
