Not What I Expected: My Life with a Brain Injury (I didnít know I had!)

Recovery from her physical wounds was all that seemed to matter back in 1977 when Saraís legs were badly broken in car crash that upended her college graduation and shiny new career plans.

Imagine living your life with an undiagnosed brain injury. No one told Sara Lewis about the ďsevere concussionĒ noted by a doctor at the hospital. So she lived for nearly 3 decades with a brain injury she didnít know she had. During those years, frustration over thinking problems grew. Wrong turns, misunderstandings, and defeats at work and at home led to emotional and behavioral meltdowns that are the hallmark of so many brain injuries. Public awareness was growing, but not fast enough to save Sara from ruining her career, losing friends, and becoming more and more isolated.

Even after her traumatic brain injury was diagnosed, it took another decade and another trip to graduate school to become a speech-language pathologist for her to understand its impact on her life. Acknowledging and adapting to her brain injury has finally freed her to live her life fully as a survivor of a brain injury.

Not What I Expected is also available as an eBook click here.
