Real Life Diaries: Living with a Brain Injury by Lynda Cheldelin Fell, Brenda L Kleinsasser, MaryKay Schreiner

What really happens in the aftermath of a brain injury? Why can’t doctors give definitive answers? Will life ever return to normal? In Living with a Brain Injury, fourteen victims and caregivers invite readers inside their own intimate journey and expose a tender array of emotions, fears, and hopes. Along the way they offer truthful—and sometimes profound—answers to common questions many are too afraid to ask.

The candid yet inspiring true stories offer refreshing insight into the diversity of recovery from nonclinical perspectives, and highlight the unexpected ways we discover courage and hope in the aftermath of a life-changing brain injury.
