Concussion and Mild Brain Injury: Not Just Another Headline

Bonnie Nish has compiled a collection of personal experiences of recovery by survivors of mild traumatic brain injury. Imagine being a single mom about to take your children on a family vacation. Suddenly, the van door swings shut and hits you in the head. You think, "Wow!! That hurt, but it's nothing an ice pack can’t solve." A few months after this happened to Meg Stainsby, she was sitting at her family’s Thanksgiving dinner table when she suddenly recalled signing papers to sell the home she shared with her two daughters and dog in order to move into a small two-bedroom condominium.

Concussion and Mild Brain Injury: Not Just Another Headline gives clear insight into how the lives of those suffering from concussion and mild brain injury (MBI) are impacted. The individual stories of injury, recovery and discovery document the effect of the survivor's MBI on immediate and extended family members, and social and work communities.

These first-hand accounts of survivors of MBI in many facets of the community will bring tears, laughter and increased understanding, restoring hope that the ongoing challenges faced by the survivors in all walks of life can and will improve. Each story shows that MBI touches the lives of individuals from all strata of society, from the media famous to the relatively unknown.
