“Whilst you are not defined by your brain injury, your life may have been. Just work within the constraints of your TBI and around it, so that we never become a ‘victim’ and are not seen as a victim of circumstances, nor have the mindset of a victim; but rather a ‘battler’…and perhaps even ‘a champion of hope’ to others ‘out there’.”

Living with Head/Brain Injury (TBI)

“Whilst you are not defined by your brain injury, your life may have been. Just work within the constraints of your TBI and around it, so that we never become a ‘victim’ and are not seen as a victim of circumstances, nor have the mindset of a victim; but rather a ‘battler’…and perhaps even ‘a champion of hope’ to others ‘out there’.”

“Crafted and reshaped” after a discussion with “the nurse” today in the pursuit of better accuracy in my wording. As she says, my entire life from age 15 (including, relationships, jobs, career, etc has been defined by my brain injury. And “the precise (very), efficient nurse”) is always right!
