Most people look forward to holidays and special days because they are fun. It often means getting together with family and friends for jolly times. I'm not only talking about the BIG holidays in the month of December, but specific specila days like birthdays, aanniversaries, or graduations. I'm referring to any time folks gather together to celebrate some special occasion.
For survivors of brain injury, these days can be painful for any number of reasons. Tune in to hear what my panelists think about special days.
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!
