Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI

Just thinking of doing a book on this subject, as inspired by Alan Boss’s work

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.

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
