If you have experience with, interest in, or curiosity about Polytrauma and/or brain injury……
If you are a survivor or know someone who is a survivor of either Polytrauma or Brain Injury….
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.
