After Brain Injury Telling Your StoryThis workbook by Barbara Stahura and Susan B. Schuster guides survivors of brain injury and blast injury through the powerful healing experience of telling their own stories with simple journaling techniques.

By writing short journal entries, survivors explore the challenges, losses, changes, emotions, adjustments, stresses, and milestones as they rebuild their lives.

Journaling after brain injury helps written and verbal communication skills and provides cognitive retraining for following instruction. It helps promote self awareness as well as recognition of strengths and difficulties after brain injury.

It is a tool for planning for the future and discussions with family members. Journaling can be done individually, in a group or with assistance from caregivers or family.

    I suffered my TBI in October of 99. What I go through daily is trying to get gum out of hair with mittens on. It’s been brutal.

    • Robert Griffiths,

      Your analogy about brain injury is spot on. We can all imagine the futility of removing gum from hair even without the mittens.

      Thanks for your thoughts.

    • John Hetzel, recovering and healing form a brain injury is a marathon. I am happy to hear of your results so far. Just keeping putting one foot after the other and you will go far. It may be slow, but it is progress. I’m sorry to hear about PTSD. I am sure that is debilitating. Never Give Up.

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 😊

Bienvenue. I’m thinking this is the spot where I am to write a witty, flowery personal section that pulls you in......I got nuthin’
