“TBI upsets life on multiple levels: physical, psychological, social, and even spiritual. TBI affects the roots of who we are — our ability to think, to communicate…”

I feel, no matter how dire a situation, hope is the key.

We mustn’t have a victim attitude. NEVER! No matter what has happened to us, there are always new beginnings and new opportunities. Each one of us has positive attributes and we must not let our difficulties define us. They are merely challenges to overcome and you can develop strategies to compensate for these deficits. No matter how significant the injury, never think you are disabled… because disability is a state of mind.
