TBI – Survivors, Caregivers, Family, and Friends

Breaking News! Breaking News! Breaking News!

images-1“Another Fork in the Road” and “Quantum Leap” have merged for every 5th Sundays of a month. (August 31, 2014, November 30, 2014, March 29 2015, May 31, 2015, August 30, 2015, and November 29, 2015) Join Julie Sharp Kintz and me (Donna O’Donnell Figurski) in “Another Quantum Leap on the Road” as we explore topics directly related to Traumatic Brain Injury.

The topic for August 31, 2014 delved into how “Life Changes After TBI” from the viewpoints of both survivor (Julie) and caregiver (me).

It was a great show and a great discussion. Some of the topics we covered were:

1. Personality change in the survivor

2. Loss of old friends

3. Making new friends

4. Role reversal. Caregiver becomes dominant partner taking on ALL of the responsibilities

5. Loss of career/job

6. Loss of substantial income

7. Frustration of family and friends not understand the extent of TBI

If you missed the show, don’t fret. You can always listen to the archived show. I’ve included the link below.

Please SHARE!

I hope you’ll tune into my regular show the 1st and 3rd Sunday evenings of every month. The show airs at 5:00p Pacific time and runs for 90 minutes.

See you “On the Air!”

No memory of the day that changed my life

My name is Michelle Munt and this is my story about surviving a brain injury and what I continue to learn about it. This is for other survivors and their loved ones, but also to raise awareness of what can happen to those in an accident. This invisible injury too often goes undiagnosed and it can be difficult to find information about it. I will talk about things that have helped me as I continue to recover and invite others to see if it works for them too.

Everything and nothing. GM1123 😊
