People just don’t get it

People just don’t get how severe a brain injury is…

Let’s say that you fall down and break your arm. Just your arm is broken, nothing else is affected. You can still walk, still talk, can still think fast enough to process conversations.

But let’s say you fall down and hit your head and sustain a traumatic brain injury.

Many people don’t realize how severe and how much your life has no changed. They don’t see the “invisible wounds”, stuff that no one can see.

Because if you fall down and hit your and get a traumatic brain injury, you not only hurt your head but you have now inflicted pain to your entire body. I don’t just mean actually pain but I mean now your life is going to be painful because you are trying to your body a certain way and you just can’t make it move the way you want it to.

You try, try and try but it just doesn’t work the way you want.

it’s up to us to rise above the pain. The pain of being another casualty to a TBI or ABI. WE can do it! Nobody knows what goes on or what we are going through but it is up to us to rise above it!

    Wow, I’ve never heard it quite like that, Zachary. But it is so true! Kuddos to you for putting it in language that Non-brain injured people can understand!

    Thanks for sharing that article i truly affirmed that one who suffered with tbi shouldn’t loose one’s patience to go ahead in the life. One should discuss his problems with the tbi experts and people who faced tbi and should get to know how they over come from that situation.

    Appreciating the dedication you put into your website and detailed information you provide.
    It’s great to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t
    the same unwanted rehashed information. Wonderful read! I’ve bookmarked your site and I’m adding your RSS feeds to
    my Google account.

    I’m curious to find out what blog platform you have been working with? I’m experiencing some minor security
    problems with my latest site and I would like to find
    something more secure. Do you have any suggestions?
