Anger and denial are two emotions that many brain injury survivors and their caregivers experience, and it's not surprising. Brain injury tears so many lives apart. In an instant, lives change and often can never be put back together again. Two caregivers, Bob Millsap and Jeannette Davidson-Mayer and survivor, Lisa Dryer join me to alk about how they and their survivors keep these strong emotions in line.


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!
