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 .

You’re trying to learn, you know, distracted environment now, going to rehab and football where do you get the time for the academics? Energy, energy for the academics?

Yeah, I know. I was, I was tired but, my, my teachers were really understanding, and they were like “all right give me your thing when, when you can.” But I’d usually be able to meet the deadline. I didn’t have that much work thank God because I don’t know what I would have done if I had too much work.

Did you go full time the second semester, or was it still part time?

It was full. I’m not sure.

What problems did you have in your senior year with your classes?

Well math obviously. I struggled with that.

Did you have to take another math class?

I had to take statistics, yeah. Well, I, I don’t know if I had to take that but it would have been good for college but yeah.

Did you manage to pass it?

Yeah, yeah I did.

How did you make it through something where you’re having a deficit in math, plus statistics has as much memory as math.

Just, well asking everyone I can for help. I wasn’t ashamed asking for help. I needed help because everything I’ve been through. So I asked.
