A "bump" on the head can change your life and may cause a serious "invisible" brain injury. Brain injuries happen every day, only we don't take them seriously enough. Dizziness, inability to sleep, irritability, mood swings; all of these are signs of a possible brain injury. Yet, when we experience these, we are often told to, "Shake it off" it will go away. What happens when it doesn't go away? Where do we look for help? Not all doctors know what a brain injury looks like or how one behaves. In this book Ethel Dimont, tells her compelling story of how she received a wrong diagnosis about a concussion she received in a car accident. After many months of not getting better, her doctor decided the injury was "all in her head" and she was labeled a malingerer (slacker).
