Living With Head (Brain) Injury

Image result for bandaged brain

“Head injuries are all different, often markedly so. If you have a head injury you will live with that head injury all the time and the only person who knows and understands your head injury is you. So called head injury experts will never understand a head injury unless they have head one. Yes they can help, but when it comes to living with your head injury you are the expert and can feel superior to any doctor..”
