My story is a bit different, rather ‘crazy’ – ‘unique’ m says….and she’s always right (I checked on the net…and ‘yes”, seems to be correct!).
At age 15 I suffered a serious closed head injury in a midget car racing accident in Cape Town, South Africa, where I was in a coma for a long time . Since my diagnosis (very traumatic) over 25 years ago after “emigrating”, together with many struggles in the working environment many years later in Perth Australia, I have been researching, studying and writing books and articles in this field. My other blogs in this area at http://www.headbraininjury.wordpress.com (which recently got mentioned in Yahoo News USA ) www.livingwithheadininjury.wordpress.com
and http://www.traumaticbraininjurytbi.wordpress.com may be of interest.
I would really like in some small way to help share a better understanding of what is sometimes termed “the hidden handicap”(and/or “the silent epidemic”) … and this is my reason for sharing
My other blogs in this area are at

Helping promote better understanding and awareness of what is often termed “The Silent Epidemic” (and/or “The Hidden Handicap”)
