Were you lead to believe you have a Mild Traumatic Brain Injury mTBI? Maybe or maybe not?

Too often we hear about the term Mild Traumatic Brain Injury and wonder why it is called “mild” because those struggling with it find it’s not “mild” at all.

Who is helping the healthcare professionals through this difficult time?  They are always helping other people at work…but what happens when it is a healthcare professional?  That’s the key…when it happens to a healthcare professional then everyone is expected to understand and help.  That is not the case. Few understand and fewer care.  This is all about brain injury awareness and patient safety and advocacy.  You don’t want to be a patient! Read the rest of this entry »
