My name is Linda W. Arms. I am a TBI survivor. My accident happened January 15, 2006. I am much improved but the effects of the injury are still with me and will be part of my life forever. Before the accident, I did not understand the impacts a brain injury can have. During the very dark days of the first years, I grieved for who I was and what I lost. I despaired because I just was not getting better. Very slowly I saw improvements and now 10 years later I can say I am much, much better. My recovery was assisted by many medical providers and by the elusive “Brain Fairy” who works magic (good and bad) in our brains.
In these past years, I learned much about brain injury to apply to my recovery. Most of my research was on the Web where I often experienced brain overload when I tried to view or read web sites that were not friendly for a reader with TBI. I collected many pieces of information during this time and I would like to share this with others who need to know more about traumatic brain injury. I try to give you a simple format with access to clearly presented information. Although I prefer something even simpler than what you see here I have had to compromise between simplicity and functionality. You may find links to some “busy” sites but I include them only because they offer some valuable or unique content. You can also read my blog to learn more about my experiences during this long journey to improvement after a brain injury. You may find things that sound very familiar to you.
Your comments, suggestions and questions are welcome. Remember I am not an expert in any way other than the experience of surviving a brain injury. I do not claim to have any medical, legal, financial or any other expertise. I am just one of many people whose life was changed by a traumatic brain injury and I share this information with you based on my experiences in recovery.
