Accepting a changed new life is one of the greatest challenges brain injury survivors face. It’s also one of the most important. Coming to terms with brain injury can mean the difference between a mournful life spent looking backward and a meaningful life spent moving forward. In this book, long-term brain injury survivor Carole Starr mines her own acceptance journey for nuggets of wisdom to help others. Each chapter contains numerous strategies survivors can use. You’ll learn how Carole went from being uprooted by brain injury, to putting down new roots to rising into a changed life and finding a way to soar. This book is more than the story of one survivor accepting brain injury. It’s also a workbook that readers can use to apply the strategies to their own brain injury journeys. The opportunity to think, write and talk about one’s own experience makes this book a powerful resource.
Reinventing Oneself After Loss
Of all the physical and cognitive losses after her brain injury, it was Hilary Zayed’s loss of self that was the least visible to others…but most painful for her. Her book explores her meaning of loss, the search for a new identity, and the reinvention of her “new self” with her new self-awareness. Art became her vehicle for self-exploration and self-expression, as she struggled to build a new identity and move forward. She shares her experiences (post-TBI) candidly, and her artwork speaks volumes about her passion for life.
