Tragic truth behind boyfriend’s ‘ghosting’

When Hayley Woloshen met Cody Bryant in Hawaii in 2022, they immediately hit it off.

They found out that they live only a kilometer apart and are enjoying a whirlwind romance.

But after a few weeks of being together, Cody suddenly stopped responding to Hayley’s messages.

She mistakenly assumed he was her ghost, but the truth was far more tragic.

Cody had a moped accident in Ibiza and suffered devastating injuries that left him in a coma.

Hayley only learned the truth when she came across a GoFundMe page that revealed what had happened to Cody.

Hayley reached out, but unfortunately Cody’s injuries left him with no memory of their time together.

However, they continued to talk and managed to rekindle their romance.

“Neither of us expected it, but the feelings started to build. Just kidding she won me over the second time,” Bryant wrote in an Instagram post.

Doctors feared that Cody would never walk again due to his injuries, but he defied expectations and in March of this year, he and Hayley climbed the Acatenango Volcano in Guatemala.

“Before my accident I had done a lot of big name hikes around the world but unfortunately I thought I would never be able to do it again,” Cody said.

“I still have problems with balance and muscle coordination, so going down the slippery, steep and uneven ground caused a lot of slips and falls. Fortunately, Haley’s cheerleading skills came in handy to minimize the impact.”

But despite his incredible progress, Cody told followers that his brain injury is still extremely difficult to live with.

“My positivity has gotten me this far and I don’t want to lose that, but I’m going to be more transparent about invisible issues,” he told followers.

“The sentence ‘I wish I had missing limbs instead of brain damage’ appeared in my journal several times. Consciously losing your mind is terrible.”

Cody still has most of his long-term memories, but has had gaps in recent years. He doesn’t remember the holiday he was on in his moped accident, or the years after.

“My brain doesn’t ‘autosave’ anymore, so I use notes for everything,” he explained.

“My attention span is fleeting, so I often lose track of what I’m doing. I rely strictly on the watch because my innate sense of time is quite poor.’

Despite the many challenges he faces on a daily basis, Cody has vowed to learn to write, run and swim again.

“I’ve always believed that the human mind is so powerful, and my recovery has reinforced that belief,” he said.
