Living with a Brain Injury — My Journey thus Far Part 1 Video Presentation
Posted by Second Chance to Live on June 7, 2012
Hello and welcome back to Second Chance to Live my friend. I am happy to see that you decided to stop by to visit with me. I read my articles through the video presentation format, because I have found that individuals learn in different ways. Some individuals learn better through reading, while other individuals learn better through watching and listening.
In February 2007, shortly after I created Second Chance to Live, I began a series to share a brief autobiography of what I experienced and learned through the process of living with a traumatic brain injury and an invisible disability during the course of the past 45 years. I wrote My Journey thus Far to help individuals living with brain injuries and invisible disabilities to know that they are not alone in their process.
In my experience, I have found that there is tremendous power in identification. Traumatic brain injuries and invisible disabilities can leave us feeling very alone and isolated. My hope is that as you listen to this series you will find a freedom to be who you are as an individual who is living with a traumatic brain injury survivor and an invisible disability. My hope is that you will begin to celebrate your self.
My hope is that as you listen to this series you will find the courage to be who you are as an individual, because you are not your brain injury or your invisible disability. My hope is that as you listen to this series you will no longer feel alienated or isolated from your self or other people. My hope is that as you listen to the series you will no longer feel alone as you travel on your journey living with a brain injury.
My hope is that you listen to this series you will dream dreams and see visions for your life and future that you never dreamed possible. My hope is that as you listen to this series you will take the first step on your journey – if you have been reluctant to – and that you will commit to keep walking. My hope is that as you listen to this series you will not give up on your process, a loving God or yourself my friend.
