Ever taken a fall and hit your head? Bumped it hard skiing, rafting, or even in a harmless little fender-bender and had to take the rest of the day (or week, or month) off? Millions of people are injured with concussions of varying severity every year and then cast back into a life of work, relationships, and responsibilities as though nothing has changed.
Regardless of a trauma's severity all of our lives must go on tomorrow, so rather than merely a support group this Meetup is designed to enable empowering understanding, shared resources, and a few well-earned laughs amongst survivors along that path back into life. The Secondary Trauma sustained when re-engaging socially, professionally, and personally within a world which cannot understand our struggle is almost as painful as the original impact. Please consider this a TBI Opportunity Group built upon shared experience and support, then come and join us for a cup of coffee sometime to move forward with your goals and show that none of us will be defined by our injuries. Building with one another upon such individual challenges, this unique community is encouraging its members along the path to recovery and reintegration while enjoying that next positive step into the future.
