According to Robin J. Bloom, author of the new book “My Daze of Brain Injury: The Dance of Destiny” (published by Balboa Press), traumatic brain injury (TBI) affects more than 1.7 million Americans each year. Her book, released during Brain Injury Awareness Month, details her personal struggles of surviving multiple brain injuries.
In “My Daze of Brain Injury” Bloom, a special education teacher, finds herself a student of her own skills as she searches for ways to heal. She shares the experience of the severe traumas that initially grounded her in pain, loss and fear. Through Bloom’s own inner transformation, she begins to perceive her tragedies as gifts. Her book is a must-read for TBI survivors, their families/caregivers and all those who suffer from trauma.
“Through the gift of loss, I painfully learned what was missing in my life. More importantly, I learned what would no longer serve me,” explains Bloom, “at other times, change was needed to make way for new beginnings. The more I gave, the more I received – but I had to start with (loving) myself, one day at a time.”
Bloom goes on, saying, “Today, our world is experiencing unprecedented change, including economic upheaval. Millions of people face trauma through the loss of their jobs and their homes, as well as through TBIs. The military returning from war, also suffer from both the visible and invisible injuries to the brain and body. Now more than ever, an emphatic need exists in people to find deeper meaning in their lives.”
“My Daze of Brain Injury” provides a resource of information in understanding how to live and grow with a TBI, education and alternative methods of healing, the importance of keeping an open mind, and the power of faith. Readers will learn the value of defining success, overcoming adverse challenges and transforming them into positive lessons with rewarding outcomes.
“A percentage of the book proceeds will be donated to the Wounded Warrior Project to assist women and men who are recovering from TBIs and other severe injuries,” says Bloom.
