How to Survive A Car Accident ~ By Gunnar Watts

Before I post Gunnar’s Story Let me tell you what I decided last night. I invited everyone on my email list associated with Brain Injury Association of Delaware Support Group to Tell Me Their Story. We all have one and I wanted to make several points: I want us all to recognize how devastating it is to a person’s life to acquire a Traumatic Brain Injury, how resilient people are, and how pervasive TBI is in our society. I also wanted desperately to give them a voice, so I welcome Caretakers and Survivors to Tell Me you Story!

I want to thank all the people that I hope will take this opportunity to share their stories. Tonight I would like to Thank Gunnar Watts for sharing his. I think you are an amazing young man and that you very brave. Thank you for being the first story, that I am honored to post in a series of others I hope to post this month and throughout the life of this blog.

If anyone is seeking assistance for a Traumatic Brain Injury in Delaware,  please go to Brian Injury Association of Delaware via this website

Live Life so you never have to say," I should have..." I have lived like this because at age 9, I was brutally beaten while walking to school and acquired a head injury and a lifetime of recovery. I live in spite of what everyone believed I would become. And you wouldn't know any of this if you saw me or spoke to me. That being said; I think that people with TBI are many times Anonymous and often without a voice, a listening ear or proper resources. I am here to say that many can't be like me and I want to help people live better through practical wisdom and real life inspiration. I am a writer and an avid observer of the human condition, I have advocated for peoples rights for almost 31 years in the human service field. I hope to inspire people to live well against all odds and the status quo. Be Unique and be who you are and not who others want you to be. Be FREE!
