Here we go countdown to Christmas, and the holidays. Holidays are a time of reflection and remembrance and a time to celebrate the people in our lives. For many survivors this is a time of year where these memories are only pain. The pain of those who would not or could not wait for us to heal. Because of the amount of time it takes to come back from a brain…See More

I am a brain injury Survivor, Family/Caregiver or professional
What do you find most difficult living with a brain injury
I was in a severe automobile accident 14 years ago, sustained a traumatic brain injury, and because I'm involved in a survivors support group, they told me about this site.
are you on another social network such as facebook, so we can varify your a real person trying to apply
I would like to share my methods of how I overcame some of my difficulties and possibly learn new ones. I would also like to get to know others with my type of injury so that I might be able to socialize with them, letting them know they're not alone and for encouragement.
Michael, Tell me some particulars about the Eyelights....I've done some research on the brain and how the lights affect dopamine and stuff....How long did you wear before you felt better? what color are the lights? Did you have balance issues...and not "Vertigo"...cause I've had alot of rehab in physical therapy for vertigo type of symptoms...bu that "is not" my problem...I feel as though I'm floating when I walk immediately when I get up in the morning. I've had blood pressure tests when I raise from a laying position and it checks okay....I've had this balance issue for a long time now..since approx Jan 2009 or something like that....Anyway-thanks for the info about the lights ...I'm gonna "try" this out also....
