This site is here to help take the struggle out of finding resources and information when someone is faced with a Trauma from a Polytrauma or Brain Injury, and the resulting conditions from those injuries (acute or chronic pain, symptoms, experiences, processes, etc) and various treatment options available.
Whether the result of that Trauma is from a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) such as a Sports Concussion, a Wreck (vehicle accident), Blunt Trauma from a Violent Act, Veteran from one of our Armed Forces with a blast injury, a multi-system trauma, medical procedure, or an Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) – like a shunt, medical event (like a stroke, surgery, aneurysm, tumor, seizure, etc)….or something not so seemingly simple/harmless as a slip and fall.
No matter who you are, if you are looking to have a better understanding – then this site is for you.
The most important thing you can do is advocate for yourself or others. You know your body better than anyone and that knowledge will enable you to get what you need. You have to be vocal and relentless. Sometimes you have to be a voice for the voiceless. We may have an invisible disability. That means the burden is on us to educate those around us – including the medical establishment – in order to have our needs addressed. And yeah, sometimes that sucks. However, you are not alone in this endeavor. Be brave, be bold, be proactive.
If you can find just one thing here in these pages that you did not know or might be useful, then here at HOPE TBI, our efforts will have been worth everything and made this all worthwhile. So come on in, explore each tab, link, and written experience. You are welcome here.
