 Brain Injury is NOT Discriminating!

bigstock-cartoon-face-vector-people-25671746-e1348136261718On April 13, 1996, I had a near-fatal car accident before my junior prom. Many people thought that I wouldn’t make it to see my seventeenth birthday. I fooled them. The doctors and nurses thought that I had taken my last breath. I fooled them. I pulled through and graduated from high school in May of 1997.

I may have overcome high hurdles in my life, but they were put there so I could prove to myself that I am here until I die. Nothing is going to destroy me. If you knock me down, I promise you that I will get back up swinging.

Kara Swanson’s life was changed forever the day a minivan ran a red light and struck her car. This accident left Kara confused and frightened and with a Traumatic Brain Injury. Her TBI will impact her for the rest of her life. Kara’s book, “I’ll Carry the Fork” tells of the hardships that Kara endured as she struggled through her injury trying to regain her life. Kara approaches this serious topic with humor and hopes that her story will help other survivors and their families and friends understand the process of healing and recovering from a Traumatic Brain Injury.

You can learn more about Kara Swanson on her blog at Kara Swanson’s Brain Injury Blog.

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.
