POEMS, QUOTES, AND PERSONAL STORIES

POEMS:

These poems and prose were all written by brain injury survivors. Their hearts and souls are revealed in these writings. The purpose of our quest is to make the general public more aware of the total devastation that is experienced not only by the survivors of brain injuries but also their families. You are about to glimpse the struggle and battles that we fight everyday of our lives. You will notice that many of the writings also make reference to the role and struggle that many also have with epilepsy. The reason for this is that many times after a traumatic brain injury, there also unfortunately follows traumatic epilepsy.
