Welcome to

This website is for brain injury survivors, their families and caregivers, or for anyone who wants to learn more about brain injury.

The more you learn about brain injury, the more you will know what to expect.  I don’t want you to feel as scared or alone as I felt.  I wish I had known to expect some of the things that happened to me.  Learning to cope with the symptoms and changes is very important.  It will help you heal emotionally as you recover physically.  It will take time.

I am a brain injury survivor of 22 years.  Adjusting to a life with brain injury was a very sad and lonely process for me.  Throughout that time, I learned many things that helped me cope better with the daily struggles I faced.  I wrote a book about my experience, "Living in the Shadow of Myself, My Journey through Brain Injury." 

I wrote my book with only one intention, to help others. 

From my heart to yours, I want you to know that you are not alone.
