I have said this many times:Having a brain injury is like dropping a box of unmarked pieces of a puzzle ..then picking it up & having NO Idea on How, What, When and Why ..to even start placing them together to make any kind of sense out of it.Often it is not the trauma that creates the most pain..it is the lack of support & understanding after.~WRH
