My name is Lori Purdy Faitel and I am a Traumatic Brain Injury Survivor. And I am your host for THE SCIENCE OF HAPPINESS.I suffered a TBI many years ago, when I was 24 years old. As I speak to you tonight I am 52 years old and very happy to share my age. Like many of us survivors after the TBI I was clinically dead 3 times so…. it is proper to tell that I almost did not live to be 25, which makes being over 50 a blessing! Back in the day, everything in my life was a dream come true. I was almost 25 years old, had a recent promotion in business that inspired me with dreams for my future, I was attending college at night, I had recently moved out of my parents home for the first time, I had many friends and I was on the fast track to a future with the man I had been in love with for about 5 years. THEN on a beautiful sunny spring morning as I drove on the freeway to my job a construction truck dropped bales of hay onto my windshield causing me to lose control of my car, spinning off the road and into cement construction material. From that point forward my dreams were taken away. I was diagnosed with a TBI, in a mild coma for 7 days and it took about 6 years of therapy and extensive study before I was able to function like an adult again. I understand that the world is not filled with happiness; But for an hour or so lets concentrate on things that help to create happiness. My guest Wednesday night will be Chris Neistroy. A few years ago I was promoting The Book I wrote "Am I Brain Damaged?" at a local Networking club that is where I met Chris. He is the father of a young woman who suffered Brain Injury. He has positive and happy things to tell of how her life is moving forward. Hopefully ,The Lady I am referring to Chrysa, Chris's daugther will join the show also. Listen to Wednesday nite 8PM Eastern Standard Time to "The Joy of Happiness"
