Anyone who has survived ,is a caregiver for, an educator, or is just curious about traumatic brain injuries should join.
The main purpose will be for post trauma support. I have learned from experience that this is an extremely difficult process to go through on your own. I am starting this group with the hope that others will contribute to the organizational aspects in the future. I still struggle with organization but am getting better and think it worth giving this a shot since I have seen how much a difference any kind of support network can make.
Eventually I would like to bring in experts to give talks, yoga and meditation for people with traumatic brain injuries and activities we could all do together. It can also be a safe place for your to discuss what your are really feeling and going through without judgement. Others may have some excellent ideas to help and I have a lot of treatment under my belt at this point and have been practicing yoga and meditation for over a decade.
The best gift for me the last few years has been realizing that I am not alone in this and I am not just some crazy person with random symptoms that no one understands. It just took a group of excellent survivors to first show me this and I would justlike to get others to experience the same during one of their hardest times.
