Is your home safe? We like to think ours is. Most folks do feel safe in their own homes. It's familiar and they don't expect anything bad to happen, but do you know that according to WebMD tens of thousands of folks die from injuries sustained in their own homes. Another seven million are left with injuries that leave them disabled. Falls are the biggest culprit of death and injury followed by poisonings, fire, suffocation, and drowning.
Tonight’s guest, Freya Perry, will talk about how her life changed, in her own home, when a sculpture fell out of the sky – hitting her on the head. Well, it didn’t really fall out of the sky, but it did topple off a high kitchen shelf and it did land on her head causing her brain injury, which has altered her life tremendously.
Tune in to find out how she has reinvented her life through art.
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, or a door literally slamming one in the face are just some causes of traumatic brain injury. College plans, walking down the aisle in the perfect dress, or the coveted job quickly slip 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!
