Everyday “normal” life is a mix of swirling mental, emotional, physical and spiritual components. How does this change with a severe injury? I had a stable, normal life until a “minor” motor vehicle accident, a serious neck injury, a traumatic brain injury and post traumatic stress disorder threw me into an alternate state of reality. The Workers Comp system, a physician unable to recognize or diagnose my injuries, and my employer's insurance carrier who automatically assumes fraud are my antagonists and further devastate me. My life and my family life will never be the same. Despite all this, I overcame, healed and went back to working in my profession (RN) with the help of alternative medicine, a Native American Indian healer and Spirit. My story is very unique and it is written to encourage, educate and to give hope to others (patients as well as care givers), who are on the TBI and/or PTSD road to recovery.

Dec 6, 2007"TBI" This was a definite eye-opener as I learned what TBI was about from a person who experienced it and wrote about it. This book will encourage, give hope and insight to caregivers, as well as others who have no experience with it. Two thumbs up! Awesome Ms. Jo ! Elaine
Nov 10, 2007"TBI" "This is a book that should be given out to the families of everyone who has had to deal with brain damage! People need to know what it is like for their family and friends who experience this in order to be able to be supportive during a time that is more difficult than the average person coulf imagine. Very well written and authoritative." Terezhna Jones, DHM, PH.D.
