Earlier this month, I attended this years Brain Injury Walk with my friends and family. It’s always nice to see such a large group of people who are impacted by brain injury. Every other year the brain injury support group has their logo ( a walking brain ) paired with a shirt and hat.
I also attended my local brain injury support group earlier this week. There were brain shaped sandwiches and salad.

We had a great discussion about some of our goals and things we’d like for the future. Some people shared their information about dealing with the comments of people who just don’t get that what it’s like to deal with a brain injury. With a brain injury, it is invisible and often times, people just think that there’s nothing wrong with you since you don’t look sick. I had someone tell me this recently. You don’t have to look sick to be in pain. One of the reasons I made a film about my brain injury experience was to educate others about the impact this type of injury can have on individuals and people around them.
