The Blessing of a Brain Injury: Author Survives Injury to Brain Following Stroke, Uses Injury as Fuel to Overcome Odds

back at the experience, I have never asked, 'why

me?' In fact, I have thought 'why me' for having what I

consider a very successful rehabilitation. My attitude

from the beginning has been to make the misfortune of

having a brain injury analogous to having a fall. The

survivor may choose to stay down, or to treat the

misfortune as a glitch, from which he or she may recover,

to move on with life.

Tommy Beel was moved to a group home following hospitalization, where he continued recovery. Fortunately, the result of his brain injury was temporary. For the first three months of his brain injury he was totally unable to walk, talk or use a pen or pencil. He was able to regain these skills only with aggressive therapies and the passage of time. "My Glitch" is his first book.
