    I’ve learned my most powerful and lasting lessons about resilience, determination, courage, and love from people who’ve survived brain injuries. We all have so much to teach and learn from each other.

  2. I used to try to get others to understand what my TBI entailed, but finally gave up. Many didn’t want to hear about it, others said “We understand” and proceeded to prove they didn’t, and some simply prefer to judge me and not accept I have issues, because on the outside I am smart and there is no visible marks.
