The Best and Worst Parts of Being a TBI Survivor

What? There is a best part of TBI?! It depends on your outlook. “Glass half full people” tend to look for the proverbial silver lining. In so doing, they create their own little oases of happiness.

Networks of Support

Here I am, midway (almost!) through the Masters in Social Work, and so much of what we learned this first year resonates so strongly with me.
