Anyone with a physical ailment or who loves someone suffering from debilitating health conditions will benefit from reading "If I Only Had a Brain Injury: A TBI Survivor and Life Coach's Guide to Chronic Fatigue, Concussion, Lyme Disease, Migraine, or Other 'Medical Mystery'" (ISBN 9781436322461, Xlibris Corporation, 2008).
When a car crash resulted in a brain injury, Laura Bruno was forced to relearn everything she knew. For four years, Bruno was disabled and unable to work. She found difficulty performing such simple tasks as reading or driving from one location to another without getting lost. Now she tells her story to provide hope and healing to others.
Bruno compares herself to Dorothy in "The Wizard of Oz" and uses the Scarecrow's song from the film to create the title for "If I Only Had a Brain Injury." She reminds us that Dorothy's experiences were the result of a concussion, but Dorothy returned from her dream with greater appreciation for home; similarly, Bruno's brain injury gave her a new and more compassionate perspective.
Bruno explores numerous medical mysteries similar to brain injuries. She writes about her husband's experiences with Lyme Disease, as well as people's struggles with Multiple Sclerosis, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia. Common shared tendencies include lost sense of "self," debilitating fatigue, chronic pain, inability to access parts of your brain, and frequent sensory overload.
"If I Only Had a Brain Injury" contains a wealth of information in an interesting, easy-to-read manner. Bruno provides healing hints, appendices, interviews with various experts, networking and contact information. "If I Only Had a Brain Injury" is the ultimate starting place for anyone suffering a physical illness. The reader will learn how to heal on physical, mental, emotional and spiritual levels so life continues as a rich and gratifying experience.
