Michelle Bartlett will share her story about how she got her brain injury and how it has changed her life. She says that she enjoys helping others. Michelle has been a speaker at two national brain injury conferences and she also writes newspaper articles to help raise awareness of brain injury. Michelle says, "My life now isn’t what I planned it would be. It is what it should be." With that attitude, Michelle will go far.
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!
