Inside Danielle's mind

If I have the belief that I can do it, I shall surely acquire the capacity to do it even if I may not have it at the beginning.

Mahatma Gandhi

Yes, there must be a belief in yourself, but ultimately remember:

Through God, all things are possible.
Matthew 19:26

And I believe that this is how I came through my car accident so successfully.  There were people all around the state praying for me, the church that I belonged to, my extended families’ churches, churches I have never attended and the religious groups in my school, everyone in my community.  I strongly believe in the power of prayer.

The Silent Epidemic of Acquired Brain Injury

For many people, following injury there are obvious physical consequences, such as paralysis, weakness, fatigue, headache or problems with coordination. Many may have difficulty communicating, whether expressively or receptively, or both. For many more, it is the less outwardly visible consequences which nevertheless produce the more severe restrictions to participating in everyday life. Brain injury can affect your ability to maintain attention, to remember, to think, plan and problem solve and can hamper your insight and your ability to manage emotions. Everyday situations can be rendered almost impossible for some people with brain injury through damage to cognitive and emotional skills that the rest of us take for granted.

Head Brain Injury and Dysphasia

What is Dysphasia?

I had great difficulty in talking at first. Even with much effort over the years, this is an area in which I’ve always had some difficulty (telling stories, even jokes when the words just don’t come out quite right) …and perhaps why I communicate best in writing!

Hope this article is helpful to you
