A look at Traumatic Brain Injury through the eyes of braingirl and her sidekick Next Doors Cat.

Expect seriousness, stuff to think about and a small measure of silliness too. Born from a desire to use recovery from TBI and subsequent comorbid consequences in a more positive way. It’s a peek at the truly devastating and enlightening process of a sudden and life threatening traumatic experience. The bit that never featured in your plans but came knocking anyway.

It started as a blog of brain dumps, words that I wanted to write down in no discernible manner. So I thought why not do something more concrete with it and hopefully inform as well as being a theraputic aid for myself. I hope you find things on here to think about, to investigate but also to understand the invisible epidemic of Brain Injury.

It also gives me something to focus on because at the moment I have nothing but time.

I like to add videos at the end of posts. Music from people I love and they link into the post in some way. This is music that has held me throughout all of this so please take time to listen if you can. (Disclaimer, just in case! I own none of the music or images used from the Youtube videos. I make no money from the use of them and they are for entertainment purposes only).

I am available to advocate and inform about brain injury in written or spoken form. Please do get in touch.
