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 http://www.biaofde.org
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 with a seizure disorder and a lifetime of recovery.
I live in spite of what everyone believed I would become. You wouldn't know any of this if you saw me or spoke to me. we are some of the many anonymous people living with disabilities in the world.
I am a writer and an avid observer of the human condition and I have found that people with TBI are some of the most misunderstood and under funded groups of people with disabilities, I want to change that.
I have advocated for people's rights for most of my life years in the human service field and I'm trying to make a difference through education.
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!
