Kyle Turley, former football player for the New Orleans Saints, the Saint Louis Rams, and the Kansas City Chiefs, will join me to discuss life after football while living with brain injury. As an offensive tackle, Kyle has had more than his share of concussions - leading to seizures and various brain-injury complications, which have adversely affected his life. Kyle is picking up the pieces and assembling his life-puzzle by speaking out about brain injury. He does this through his music, The Kyle Turley Band, and his recent documentary, “The United States of Football.”
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!
