I think that every survivor of brain injury will agree that there are some things that they just don't want to hear from their family and friends. Some statements are sure proof that family and friends do not understand what their survivor is going through.
"I forget a lot, too." "I'm totally exhausted, too." "You look great!" are just some of the offending statements.
If you haven't had a brain injury, you probably won't undertstand. Tune in, so you won't be left out!
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!
