Having a brain injury is just the beginning. The road to recovery and rehabilitation is a very LONG road of healing. There is no one-way road. It's a winding path with many obstacles in the way. It's the survivor's job and that or his or her caregiver's to conquer the many stumbling blocks along the way. It's NOT Easy.
My panelists, caregiver, Lisabeth Evans Mackall, survivor, Juliet Madsen,and MS survivor, Chris Morris will throw around ideas with me on how we each handle recovery and rehabilitation after brain injury.
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!
