There are plenty of stories out there of victims of traumatic brain injuries and their struggles to cope with their new found limits. Sadly, most aren’t quite success stories, but rather tales of learning to cope.
While tons of people out there encounter TBI every year, those who end up in comas or with long-term debilitation do not face good odds.
This is why we need to hear stories like the one reported by Pamela H. Sacks for the Telegram. The story is of Neil Bornstein, a bright and gifted man hit by a car, as well as his mother’s journey to understanding brain injury.
Using her new book, Crash: A Mother, a Son, and the Journey from Grief to Gratitude, Dr. Carolyn Roy-Bornstein learned to cope with her son’s story of loss and struggle.
