According to the CDC, 1.7 million Americans sustain a traumatic brain injury (TBI) each year. Mild TBIs (concussions) account for 75% of those brain injuries.

As awareness about concussion and TBI rises, and debate rages about the long-term impact of brain injury, policies are changing to prevent the occurrence of concussion wherever possible.

But what if you can’t prevent concussion?

Immediately after you’re injured, what do you do? Where do you turn for help? How do you make sense of what’s happening? What can you expect? The actions you take and the choices you make, immediately after a brain injury, can significantly impact your recovery.

Concussion survivors need help – right away, to prevent further harm. But they don’t always get it.

This guide provides information on the Top 10 things I wish I had known, when I went through my own concussions.

With the right information and proper care, it is possible to make good choices, recover from concussion and get on with your life.

I am a long-term multiple (mild) Traumatic Brain Injury (mTBI or TBI) survivor who experienced assaults, falls, car accidents, sports-related injuries in the 1960s, '70s, '80s, and '90s. My last mild TBI was in 2004, but it was definitely the worst of the lot. I never received medical treatment for my injuries, some of which were sports injuries (and you have to get back in the game!), but I have been living very successfully with cognitive/behavioral (social, emotional, functional) symptoms and complications since I was a young kid. I’ve done it so well, in fact, that virtually nobody knows that I sustained those injuries… and the folks who do know, haven’t fully realized just how it’s impacted my life. It has impacted my life, however. In serious and debilitating ways. I’m coming out from behind the shields I’ve put up, in hopes of successfully addressing my own (invisible) challenges and helping others to see that sustaining a TBI is not the end of the world, and they can, in fact, live happy, fulfilled, productive lives in spite of it all.
