The loss of independence is what Sandra Williams misses most since her brain injury. She misses running and having energy to do all the things she wants to do. The biggest tip Sandra can offer other survivors is "Don't listen to negative comments or even employers that tell you you can't do the job. Listen to your heart, your soul and fight for yourself and others. It will keep you going." Sandra will talk about what keeps her going on "Another Fork in the Road." Please Tune In!
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!
