Brain and Brain Injury Awareness week

Apparently this is "Brain Awareness Week". For those who've had brain injuries, strokes, and other neurophysiological foo go on in their lives, or those who know someone who has, hopefully you'll take a little time and learn more about brain injury, and its after effects, side effects, and often nasty social consequences. Here's some links to get you going...

Brain Injury Association of America's Web Site
Brain Injury Resource Center
Traumatic Brain Injury Resource Guide
Brain Injury Society
a paper on Mild Traumatic Brain Injury
a Google search on 'mild traumatic brain injury (MTBI) postconcussive syndrome (PCS)'
stroke info (consumer data)
Intensive Training May Boost Recovery From Stroke and Other Brain Injuries

BTW, I am a survivor of a childhood MTBI and an adult stroke/BI.

Brain Injury changes ones life forever
Thanks for sharing this info.

After a brain injury it helps to do these things like write in journals, logic-word-search and other puzzles. You seem to have recovered nicely. Or do you still feel the effects of your MTBI?

Have you been following the Terri Schiavo case? I am very torn about it. On the one hand I would not like to live like that. On the other, she did not tell enough people how she felt about medical issues and more important did not make out a living medical will.

But when the husband and parents have opposite viewpoints, I say side with the one who wants to keep her alive as long as they take over her care.

I am just starting to use Live Journal. Please visit it my journal sometime at http://www.livejournal.com/users/slippers647/
