A first book about the reformation of my personality, entertaining stories of my personal recovery, education, and determination to live a productive life post-Traumatic Brain Injury(TBI).

 

"What Day Is It?" features stories of the difficulties I experienced caused by the stigma in society from brain-injury, the unique ways I worked hard at reshaping my life, and the acceptance of my disability.  My family sent their reaction to a questionnaire, as I was trying to figure-out where I had been for the entire summer.  I give credit to my family, and realize how I could not have done any of this without their help. 

Even today, as I am in conversation and appear attentive; I am all-the-while trying to remember where I met you, how I know you, what to do next, how to get home, or wondering "What Day Is It?".  I have begun chapters with proven plateaus reached toward reclaiming my independence.   Delineated in the appendix are the insightful, proven ways I coped in society with a disability titled as, "My Milestones".

As I was treated like a child, my Mother was my legal Guardian and all my rights and independence as an adult were stripped away from my existence.  This is my reality, after the late night impact by a lawyer, who fled the scene, just four blocks from where I put my car in drive.  Unfortunately, I had neglected to put into place my seat belt, and airbags had yet to be invented.

I am inviting you to go with me on my journey, in figuring out "What Day Is It?".  A path paved with my family, a path that could have gone many different directions.  Thankfully, I had my family behind me, holding me up in the right direction, steady- until I could make a path for myself.
