Joshua Puckett was just minding his business in his own front yard when he was attacked by a "random drunk person" causing his brain injury. Now he says he has a "memory of a fish." Memory problems combined with balance issues, anger, and confusion have become the "new norm" in his new life. But, Joshua is overcoming his deficits by directing his attentions to his art and his music. Both are opening new doors in this talented young man's life.
Every TBI survivor and caregiver has encountered a fork in the road that has diverted his or her life-plan. A car accident, a fall from the roof, doing one more chin-up, an IED blast, or a door literally slamming one in the face are just some causes of traumatic brain injury. College, walking down the aisle in the perfect dress, or the coveted job quickly slips from reality as dreams turn to struggle. These unexpected life-happenings that divert one from his or her chosen path in life can be devastating.
But as Yogi Berra once said, “If you come to a fork in the road, take it.” Life is all about choices!
