“What brain injury survivors want you to know”

Here’s a reposting of a reposting, but it’s still current and valuable and poignant. I found it on Anne McGinnis Breen's Brain Tumor Blog - 

Basically, it’s a brain injury victim’s request that transmogrifies into a bit of a rant and, at times, becomes a plea for understanding and help. It’s entitled “Lost and Found: What brain injury survivors want you to know.”

Here’s a plaintive excerpt from that list: “Please don’t be condescending or talk to me like I am a child. I’m not stupid, my brain is injured and it doesn’t work as well as it used to. Try to think of me as if my brain were in a cast.”

What a good analogy.

Here’s a link to - the source of the original post.
