TBI patient or caregiver, please share your story

Today was a good day. The day started taking a friend to the doctor. After his visit we went to lunch and it has been a long time since we had a conversation like today. I missed that. We have been working together for 4 years now and I enjoy every minute. His understanding and support means very much to me. He also is a great friend to my husband, they laugh together and they support each other. This is one of the blessings in my life.

Today I finished one of my Summer classes, Qualitative research. Mhhhh, what is that? Maybe this is your question so I will answer very simply. Qualitative research is a type of study that looks at the stories of people and explore their lived experiences. I like when people share their stories because believe it or not we all have a story. I think that is why living in the Southwest I like to collect "story tellers".

Going through this class I wanted to know even more about how patients with TBI feel and how their family cope. I think it is very important to share our stories to empower others and help them through the process. I believe in the power of transforming circumstances and life through the care and love of others. I am not sure today who will read my blog but whoever you are I am sure you have a story to tell. Please share your story and I will continue to share mine.

With love!
