The Smile on My Forehead: Memoir of My Life With a Brain Injury

ByJennifer Mosher

This book is my personal memoir of learning to accept my new injured self as I figure out the best way to manage life with a Traumatic Brain Injury. It starts like this: While driving west on Interstate 80 for my senior year at Brigham Young University, my car tumbled five times into the median. I was unconscious on impact, and I don't remember any part of the accident. My next clear memory is waking up on a hospital bed more than two months later, wondering where I was and why I had a metal Halo Brace drilled into my skull. My family explained I'd fractured my neck, both femurs, and severely injured my brain in a car accident on my way back to college. "I'm in college?" I asked. And the rediscovery of myself began.
