Thank you, WORLD!

Thank You, World

Donna O’Donnell Figurski

blogI started my blog, “Surviving Traumatic Brain Injury,” in March 2014 when I saw a need to connect with other survivors and caregivers in the brain-injured community. I saw people struggling as I had as I tried to make sense out of this new life that visited us when my husband had his brain injury in 2005. At that time, I had no community to turn to. There were no social media. I felt lost and alone. I didn’t know there were other people living with many of the same problems that we were battling. But now, because of the rise of social media, there are many places for people to find information about brain injury, and I wanted to be one of those places.

In the more than ten years that my husband, David, has lived the brain-injured life, I have learned a lot, and I want to share my information with newcomers to this unexpected life. I want to provide a place where they can go to obtain information, but mostly I want to provide survivors and caregivers a platform to SPEAK OUT! I want them to share their stories and their thopinions, and I want others to draw hope and courage and inspiration from those who are traveling a similar path.

This page was created to say THANK YOU to the survivors and caregivers who have so graciously shared their stories here with the hope of raising awareness of brain injury.

It was created to say THANK YOU to everyone in the WORLD who stops by to read it. In the year and a half since I created my blog, thousands of folks have stopped by from all over the world (nearly 50,000 at this point).Thank-you-post-it

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 😊
