My brother was in a dirt bike accident 2 years ago. He suffered a TBI, he had both a subdural and epidural hematoma, he also had a major midline shift. I was the first one to the hospital and the social worker told me it is really bad. He only had 20 minutes to get into surgery. He is now about 90%, and he lives every day like its his last. It has made me want to wrap in bubble wrap. Its also made me more afraid of just every day events than I ever was before. I think I have more ptsd than be does. He is a huge inspiration. The doctors are mind-blown by his outcome.

had a sleepover with some friends at 14 at a friends house. Was in tumbling at the time; did a backflip on a tramp and over rotated and slammed my head on the bar went inside fell over and slept for 14 hours on the couch.

Finding happiness seems to be harder than it was. 33 now but have always felt that the change was at this moment
