Recovery from Traumatic Brain Injury

Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI

darkness-tunnel
Just thinking of doing a book on this subject, as inspired by Alan Boss’s work
see
Books & Writing
and
TBI and Ways to Recover
1. Realization 1: Make a decision.
2. Realization 2: Rely on those around you.
3. Realization 3: Do what you know.
4. Realization 4: When All else fails, laugh.
5. Realization 5: Work on yourself.
6. Realization 6: Everyone is Different.

You can heal yourself. Start today.

The first line of my new book Memories (written by Casper, my “friendly ghost-writer”)below ???

Aged 15, Craig sustained a severe traumatic brain injury and a broken neck in a midget car racing accident in Cape Town, South Africa. He was in a coma for several weeks (he thinks) and the prognosis was extremely grim

My sister would say, in reference to my size 14s, that I had a “good understanding.” And I used to say I was strong like bull, smart like tractor. We joked about my strength. I didn’t look like a body builder, but I was powerful in a sort of torque vs horsepower kind of way.

But in the first couple of years after the accident I wasn’t strong. My body shook uncontrollably at the oddest moments. I spent months in a hospital bed. I spent day’s laying on the couch, watching TV, eating, and playing guitar as well as my semi paralyzed fingers could manage. This “laziness” meant my muscles were shrinking and muscle atrophy from disuse can last a lifetime.

I was a burden on those around me.

Dad worked. Mom worked. And dad wanted…
