Just finished the last chapter on my book TBI S-O-S. Now I need to revisit the whole book and do another round of edits. A lot has changed for me (for the better) since I started writing it, and I want the book to reflect that.
If all my life leading up to this moment is a rehearsal for this moment, then this moment is also a rehearsal for what’s coming later. You can improve your brain matter at any age. You can prepare for any eventuality. I’m convinced of it. I’m living proof that, even after near-disaster, without any clue what’s happening to you, recovery from traumatic brain injury (even a lifetime’s worth) is possible.
