I was touched to read that some people think brain injury can simply be put aside and life goes on. Life does go on, but in whatever direction the brain takes you. Every day is a challenge and it does not help when others do not understand. I don’t want others to learn either, because it can be torture. Brain injury is not easy, it’s not a choice of how you want your day to unfold, it’s the unpredictable paths a damaged brain takes one on and is not under voluntary control. If it were voluntary, we’d all be better! This young woman clearly helps others along her own difficult journey. She’s an inspiration to so many with traumatic brain injury and also has an on-line support group. Is this something you endure daily or even understand?

I am thankful to you for making us aware of health hazards, diagnosis and mental problems and injuries. we do forget about health but you keep us update and moving 🙂 my husband got brain injury in an road accident that could not be diagnosed until 3 days before his death. though he got all lab tests. his body was like an experimental thing. needles and tubes. it was a blood clot on left temple that affected his sight too. after his demise it took me a year to regain my senses properly

Thanks for sharing your sad situation. I am sorry to hear about the loss of your husband under tragic circumstances. It can be unbearable at times, and when you don’t have answers it causes additional heartache. We don’t need all the answers, but when they seem relatively simple we wonder why others don’t help resolve the questions we have. It’s sad that traumatic brain injury goes undiagnosed even though it’s been in the forefront of the media throughout the world in recent years.
How are you doing today? How can I help?
Take care and stay safe.
