Lisa Mack-Finn lives in the suburbs of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania with her three children, cat and dog! This is her first published piece, with a romance novel in progress! Lisa went on hiatus from writing a romance novel when she suffered a brain injury. The injury prompted her to begin documenting her thoughts for the now self titled memoir, "-Unknown". Concussion topics have been highly publicized in the media. Lisa felt that her journey and experiences at the hands of the concussion symptoms needed a voice. Her life was turned inside out through the physical symptoms, divorce, and a triumph amidst it all. Lisa shares her story so that other concussion survivors understand that when they are in the midst of the hell, they are not going crazy; they are not alone.
Lisa sums it up best by stating, "I think the hardest part for me was recognizing that there was nothing I could do but surrender to the idea that my brain and body needed time to heal. I am still dealing with lingering physical effects of the injury. I know now that concussions don't just affect athletes and football players. You can fall on your butt and get a concussion. We need to be better educated that it is a very scary process in waiting for the brain and body to heal. It is hills and valleys, good days and bad. A lot of people don't understand because you can't see the injury like a broken arm. We need to have better support groups out there! I want to start the discussion."
