After telling a colleague at a county health department where I was working as a C.O.T.A, Certified Occupational Therapy Assistant, my colleague a Speech Language Pathologist (SLP) about journaling I had been doing since early after the TBI; she suggested I make my journal into a book - because she was sure my story would help others. For the next year or two I read my old journal entries with the thought of making them into a book.  In reading my journal I relived  many confusing, sad and angry times and I could not handle re-writing or a review of all entries.  I agreed with my colleague, the SLP, about how my journey through recuperation and into my return to employment in the world of the non-brain injured would  surely be a source of inspiration and motivation for other survivors.

 

 

“So do not fear, for I am with you;

do not be dismayed, for I am your God.

I will strengthen you and help you;

I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”

Isaiah 41:10
