''GO HOME AND HAVE A NORMAL LIFE''
That is what my physician told me when I was discharged after my brain injury in 1997. What did he mean by that? I couldn't read I couldn't talk properly; I couldn't even dial a telephone number. I had an 8 year old son who needed his mother. Since that day in 1997 I have been trying to find out what a normal life is. Having a brain injury is a journey about finding a new normal.
