Recovering From Traumatic Brain Injuries

Recovering From Traumatic Brain Injuries by Chicken Soup For The Soul

About The Book:
Whether you are recovering from a traumatic brain injury or supporting someone with a TBI, this collection of 101 inspiring and encouraging stories by others like you will uplift and encourage you on your healing journey. With a traumatic brain injury (TBI) occurring every 18.5 seconds in this country - concussions the most common - chances are you have been touched in some way by this experience. TBIs occur due to accidents and sports, and are also common in returning soldiers. The personal stories in this book, by TBI survivors and those who love and support them, will help and encourage you and your family on your road to recovery.

My Thoughts:
I had a hard time reading this book, because these are encouraging positive stories. My story with a TBI did not end well. Mason died from his TBI. But once I put that aside, and read the stories, I realized that each one is different. Each journey is different. And no matter the outcome, you do get to the other side.

About The Authors:
Amy Newmark is publisher and editor-in-chief of Chicken Soup for the Soul. Dr. Carolyn Roy-Bornstein is a physician and writer with a grown son recovering from a traumatic brain injury. Lee Woodruff is a contributor to CBS This Morning and author whose husband, ABC News anchor Bob Woodruff, recovered from a traumatic brain injury incurred while embedded with the military in Iraq.
