Dr. David H. Figurski, Professor Emeritus - Department of Microbiology and Immunology - Columbia University talks about corona.virus. Many brain injury survivors were already prepared for the shelter-in-place orders that many states have invoked. Their brain injuries have made it difficult or near impossible for some to leave their homes. So shelter-in-place was no more difficult that their normal days. Now the world gets a taste of this uncomfortable living.
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! To learn more about me, please visit my blog and website.
