This video was made for our TBI Voices project. We interviewed thirty real life survivors of brain injury. In these interviews we talked to the survivors about how they became brain injured and who they were before their brain injury. We also talk about their recovery and what deficits they have encountered because of their brain injury.
DJ is a brain injury survivor that suffered a traumatic brain injury while working to repair a bridge in rough seas.
DJ discusses reintegrating into community after traumatic brain injury. He values TBI support groups. “You must first understand you are not going to be what you used to be.”
