No matter what you are experiencing in your life, you have choices.

Author Deborah L. Schlag recounts the complicated, challenging process of living with and recovering from a traumatic brain injury in her candid new memoir, “Becoming the Healer: The Miracle of Brain Injury” (published by Balboa Press).

It was January 2003 when Schlag, a mother of five, successful small business owner and active member of her community, would see her life change forever. What began as an ordinary commute to take her two younger children to school quickly turned into a nightmare after a devastating accident left Schlag with a traumatic brain injury, or TBI.

Written with heartfelt candor and informative detail, “Becoming the Healer” is Schlag’s personal account of her eight-year journey of what she rightfully calls “miraculous recovery and transformation.” She writes openly and honestly about the impact of the car accident on her, her family, and the injuries that she sustained.

Thoroughly researched, “Becoming the Healer” is packed with information, references, recommendations and insights into many non-traditional treatments that aided Schlag in her recovery. The book stands alone as an invaluable guide for TBI sufferers and their loved ones. Schlag both informs and inspires with an accessible story of her tragic injury, written in personal, non-technical medical terms, and her experiences helping others achieve their own recovery.

“No matter what you are experiencing in your life, you have choices,” Schlag writes, “the attitude you handle it with, how you handle your experience, what you take away from it and how you can help another with what you learned through it.”
