    James Love the Destroyer on Recovery Now with Kim Justus

    in Health

    Fifteen years ago Phil White couldn’t use a fork or even speak after having emerged from a heroin overdose induced coma.  When he awoke, it was discovered he had suffered catastrophic damage to his brain. But this month after years of rehabilitation, Phil has published his first book  James Love the Destroyer. www.facebook.com/jameslovethedestroyer


    Writing is a talent he has had since high school, but he feared it was lost after his drug overdose, which left him with severe nerve damage in his leg, memory problems, and difficulty following complex step-by-step tasks. He credits reading, writing, and strong family support with helping his brain heal.


    “I think the brain can rewire itself and relearn to do things if rehabilitation trains new pathways to take shape to replace old ones. I want it to give hope to other brain injury patients that they can recover."

So many people who have had brain trauma go undiagnosed, yet the symptoms are lurking right there. We'll  discuss the challenges of relationships, goal setting, and the obsticles involved, when you've had a diagnosis since birth.
