How to Live with Traumatic Brain Injury

Craig J. Phillips is a traumatic brain injury survivor and a rehabilitation counselor.  He writes: 

“I sustained an open skull fracture with right frontal lobe damage and remained in a coma for 3 weeks at the age of 10 in August of 1967.  I underwent brain and skull surgery after waking from the coma.  Follow-up cognitive and psychosocial testing revealed that I would not be able to succeed beyond high school.  In 1967 Neurological Rehabilitation was not available to me, so I had to teach myself how to walk, talk, read, write and speak in complete sentences.  I completed high school on time and went on to obtain both my undergraduate and graduate degrees.”

His blog, Second Chance to Live, aims “to encourage, motivate and empower both disabled and non-disabled individuals to not give up on their process.”
