Amy Zellmer is a brain injury survivor who is trying to get her message out. She is an advocate for brain injury and has written her story, "Life With a Traumatic Brain Injury: Finding the Road Back to Normal." Amy is also the compiler of "Surviving Brain Injury: Stories of Strength and Inspiration." In this book you can read the stories about one hundred survivors and caregivers. (You can find my story in that book on page 114.)
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!
