Book: Chicken Soup for the Soul Recovering from Traumatic Brain Injuries: 101 Stories of Hope, Healing, and Hard Work

About the Book

When my son Neil suffered a traumatic brain injury at the age of 17, writing saved me. In between Neil’s PT sessions in the hospital, I wrote. Later, waiting for him at his mental health appointments, I wrote. While he processed his trauma with professionals, I processed mine on the page. Neil read the memoir I wrote about our family’s experience, my words filling in memory gaps for him. He gave copies to friends, the book short cut for ‘this is what happened to me. This is who I am now.’ As I gave lectures to fellow healthcare professionals on concussion and TBI, audience members all wanted to share their own stories with me–of lives changed in an instant. I was inspired I approach Amy Newmark to ask if we could work together on a Chicken Soup for the Soul book about TBI. She was enthusiastic. Her best friend’s son had just suffered a TBI in a snowboarding accident and she felt moved to act. Reading and editing those essays touched and inspired me and served to convince me further of the healing capacity of narrative, the power of sharing our stories. These stories were written by TBI survivors, their family and caretakers. They will move you and inspire you. They will teach you and motivate you. You will learn something about your patients with TBI that you will never learn in a textbook. And you will feel the powerful connection of story.
