I HAVE A BRAIN INJURY

A brain injury can change a lot about you whether it can or cannot be seen on the outside. For many people, life after brain injury can feel like walking the wrong way up an escalator, not making as much progress as you feel you should. It can be challenging to connect to others who might not understand why it takes longer to find words, why you might need more rest, or why you might move a little differently than before. At the Brain Injury Association of North Carolina, we want you to know that you are not alone and that living with a brain injury does not mean you should be counted out or judged by your limitations. You are a survivor, a warrior, a champion. You have overcome and conquered challenges that many people have not and you have so much to offer your community.
