When Bill Gasiamis felt he wasn't receiving adequate care after his stroke, he took matters into his own hands. He not only became an advocate for himself, but he opened his heart to help others. Bill has a podcast where he interviews other brain injury survivors and their caregivers. In fact, he interviewed me. Listen to Episode 182 at (https://recoveryafterstroke.com/stroke-caregiver-journey-donna-odonnell-figurski/)
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 slips 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.
