A pragmatic and moving account, of how the author came to terms with a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and learned to live life to the full once more. The fact that the author was only twenty-one at the time makes this portrayal all the more poignant. It is hoped that this book will reach others in similar positions and help them realise that some of the emotions they feel may be unique to them but that the frustrations they feel are felt by others and they are not alone in having these feelings. The author advocates never giving up and he is proof, that with determination, people who suffer TBIs can go on and achieve many things, he went on to complete his degree coming out with a 2:1, an inspiration indeed.
At the start of 2010 I incurred a very severe Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) whilst walking as an innocent pedestrian beside the A406 (North Circular) in North London. Confidently I can say that a brain injury is not something that I should even wish on my worst enemy. Being only 21 at the time of my accident, I am due to live the vast majority of my life having being the unfortunate victim of a brain injury. It is what it is. Although I am not a believer in that tired phrase of necessarily always turning the negative into a positive, I am able to carry a brain injury, rather than allow it to carry me. The novel Battling a Brain Injury: The Life That Jack built is a text that explores this journey in great detail. Learn more about Jack at his website here.
