A brain injury is a sudden, discombobulating, life-altering experience. The survivor faces a mix of intractable physical, cognitive, communication, emotional, behavioral, and/or social challenges. She easily can be overwhelmed with anger, grief, and/or depression. These negative emotions can delay or prevent the resourcefulness and resolve the survivor needs to create a full and rewarding new life.

One healthy way to address these negative emotions is through journaling. As described by Barbara Stahura and Susan B. Schuster in their book After Brain Injury: Telling Your Story, journaling is a way to “explore all aspects of your life and the emotions connected to them.” Journaling, they write, can lead to “physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual healing, change, and growth.”
