Living with an Invisible Disability — The Consequence of Denying My Reality — Part 2 Revisited Video Presentation

Posted by Second Chance to Live on February 26, 2013

Hello and welcome back to Second Chance to Live. Yesterday I created a video presentation of Part 1 of the article that I wrote and published on Second Chance to Live. Here is a link to part 1 of the video presentation Living with an Invisible Disability — The Consequence of Denying My Reality — Part 1 Revisited Video Presentation.

Here is a brief introduction of Part 2 of the article.

For many years I was encouraged to buy into a belief system that would not or could not consider the possibility that the injury to my brain contributed to the difficulties I encountered when interacting with some people and social situations. Consequently I was frequently criticized for my inability to “get along” with people without factoring in the damage to my brain.

The sad reality created by a lack of acceptance — concerning my invisible disability — resulted in my being blamed, shamed and in many instances made to be the scapegoat for matters that were out of my control.

Watch Part 2 of the presentation to discover what I learned through my process. Here is a link to Part 2 of the presentation  click on this link Living with an Invisible Disability — The Consequence of Denying My Reality — Part 2 Revisited Video Presentation
