Tell Me This: Encouragement and Hope after Brain Injury

Catherine (Catz) LeBlanc

This thoughtful, sensitive, and engaging pocket guide gives athletes, veterans and individuals hope and encouragement as they navigate the challenges of living with a brain injury or concussion. Designed as a pocket guide for quick reading and reference, it will give you far more than a pocketful of readings and reminders of what’s important for your recovery. LeBlanc best describes her writing as "wisdom nuggets or little soul energy packets wrapped as words."

Tell Me This will lift you up when you are feeling down. It will restore your belief in yourself. It will help others understand your triumphs and your disappointments.

Full Description

As an accomplished athlete, author Catherine (Catz) LeBlanc knew the risks of sports injuries. As a physician’s assistant, she knew how the brain and body work. But the concussion she sustained in a team handball game was compounded by a rear end high speed auto-truck collision 2 months later – and her life changed completely. Unable to find the hope, reassurance and inspiration she needed while struggling with her physical and cognitive challenges, she wrote Tell Me This. Her prose captures the complex feelings and emotions that are shared by so many individuals with concussions and brain injuries, but she does this with clever graphics and short phrases or “snippets” that make reading this guide a real pleasure. You will pick it up again and again.

Authors

Originally from Madison, Wisconsin, Ms. Catherine (Catz) LeBlanc has worked as a Physician’s Assistant and project manager. In 2009, she suffered a sports concussion, then two months later was rear-ended at a high speed. She has been disabled by Mild Traumatic Brain Injury and did not find a pocket-book for brain injured athletes / veterans / survivors...so she wrote this one. She has a son, and lives in Cambridge, MA. Her neurological rehabilitation process is ongoing.
