#Loveyourbrain, Wear A Helmet!

As a survivor of a TBI I know that our brains are our hard drive. I also know what it feels like to go to sleep for a month and wake up completely unaware of where you have been. My head injury happened 12 years ago, and the recovery from that accident is still a part of my everyday life. The truth is, you couldn't offer me a million dollars CASH to go through that again. I have made the vow to always love my brain. I have also vowed to use the pain from my story to educate others to be conscious about their heads (and their kids heads). We only get one hard drive, and you want it to operate at it's peak level. Wear a helmet, protect yourself, and #loveyourbrain.

#Loveyourbrain, Wear A Helmet!

6 yrs ago my brother Brian, 16 yrs younger than me, had a motorcycle accident, at only 25 miles an hour, without a helmet. He tucked and rolled into the only object within a hundred feet in either direction which was a tree. After six years recovery, he is fairly ambulatory, but has the motivation and cognition of an 8-12 year old. We have no idea if he will ever reach independence and he's now 50 years old. Brian is a wonderful person and I happily am his caretaker for what may be the rest of his life. But when I hear people say wearing a helmet doesn't have anything to do with anyone else, I'm pretty quick to point out the error in that thinking. It affects everyone around you. Today Brian will tell you, "I can't believe I wasn't wearing a helmet."
