 I also want to do/write a new book The Driver, the Nurse and the Writer: On the Road less travelled learning about Traumatic Brain Injury

As “led/inspired” (impulsively…as always) by Dr Glen’s resource with excellent information at https://traumaticbraininjurytbi.wordpress.com/2019/01/02/traumatic-brain-injury-survival-guide/

And seeing “the nurse” has always said (right from the start of “the journey”) that of all my writings this subject would be the area which would be most beneficial and in which I could make the greatest difference in helping, encouraging and uplifting others.

“Don’t do anything, but write then c, as you’re safest in bed and when you do nothing.”

– words of advice from “the nurse” (that suit me just fine!)

The immediate aftermath and consequences of traumatic head/brain injury (TBI)

head-in-the-clouds

from

https://livingwithheadinjury.wordpress.com/about/

My/our story is a bit different, rather ‘crazy’ – ‘unique’ m says….and she’s always right (I checked on the net…and ‘yes”, seems to be correct!).

At age 15 I suffered a serious closed head injury in a midget car racing accident in Cape Town, South Africa, where I was in a coma for a long time . Since my diagnosis (very traumatic) over 25 years ago after “emigrating”, together with many struggles in the working environment many years later in Perth Australia, I have been researching, studying and writing books and articles in this field. My other blogs in this area at http://www.headbraininjury.wordpress.com  (which recently got mentioned in Yahoo News USA ) www.livingwithheadininjury.wordpress.com

and http://www.traumaticbraininjurytbi.wordpress.com   may be of interest.

The immediate aftermath and consequences of traumatic head/brain injury (TBI)

SOME QUESTIONS

Here are some notes * , m (a rehabilitation nurse) made recently, regarding a discussion about our situation (sudden and extremely traumatic nearly 30 (long) years ago.

* brief (in note form)

I would really like  in some small way to help share a better understanding of what is sometimes termed “the hidden handicap”(and/or “the silent epidemic”) … and this is my reason for sharing

“We share what we know, so that we all may grow.”

THE QUESTIONS (very BIG ONES)

Contemplating the “immediate future”

What kind of career should I now be looking at?

What sort of career can you go back to?

Can you go back to the same occupation?

Look at the long-term outlook

How to earn a living and support a family?

What are my career options?

What type of help and support can you access?

 If you are married, what role will the spouse play (now and in the future)?

What is the social and medical assistance I/we can get (available resources)?

How are the/one’s extended family going to be able help in the situation?

The path to rehabilitation

What physical exercise should I be doing?

What mental exercises should I be doing?

What are the best options for me?

What are all the options I need to know on the road up ahead?

Do I need an advocate for support to come with me to medical and specialist appointments… to ask the questions?

This is very important if you have difficulty in processing lots of new information.

All this info was learnt “first hand through and trial and error” with no real assistance and support (most of it in another/”foreign” country)… let alone resources (such as the www) at the time.. M (the nurse) and I hope this info may be helpful to survivors of traumatic brain injury.

Be happy

m (“the nurse”- thanks to you for all the care and support)

Whilst the brain injury may significantly affect/impact many areas of your life…

“You are not defined by your traumatic brain injury”

Don’t let your tbi define you!”
