"Being a new person means who you were is gone. This is called a loss of sense of self. Overcoming this is hard enough, but to enjoy the fruits of growth post-TBI you must discard your second identity. This is your "TBI-survivor" identity... You have to decide that you want to be more than just a victim of brain trauma.
But let's be realistic, it is very hard to see past your brain injury. No one [else] can see it and you can see little else. This is one of the primary reasons for support groups. Being among others who can understand your loss helps to validate your feelings and this allows you to move on and heal." -Mike Strand
Here's my own personal story.
This is the most excellent book I've ever read dealing with TBI. Mine in 1984, a few years prior to Mr. Mike's, but love how he weaved practical applications based on his life experiences. Love his outlook on life and the tips for overcoming challenges. It's hard to know when to share with others the things we have going on in our minds. Most will not understand. Mike offered so many tips and insights. Cannot wait to go back and reread them....and see if he has other books as well.
A final word to the author......thank you.
