True nobility to a Brain Injury Survivor is being better than their previous self. The dedication, commitment, and the hard work needed to recover is often invisible and unknown to most others.
Brain Injury Survivors may share some of the following similarities to an Olympic Athlete in training. ****Note: Please share if you think of more.
(1) A Survivor works extremely hard to endure the unimaginable.
(2) Everyday a Survivor must battle many painful feelings, some of which may include the unremitting feelings of sadness, despair, pain, exhaustion, confusion, and fear.
(3) A Survivor’s success depends on their fight (or training) with their daily challenges.
(4) Survivors can never give up nor can they take a vacation from their injury.
