Jack Sisson's TBI Blog

A hug is duct tape for the soul.

USA Today.
reports TBI is the signature wound of the Iraq war.
In previous wars, soldiers did not survive to suffer TBI's as frequently.
Today - with advancements in body armor - soldiers live. It is estimated
that nearly two- thirds of injured soldiers sent home from Iraq have been
diagnosed with TBI.

As the community of TBI sufferers and their families well know - TBI is
difficult to identify right away. Those soldiers obviously suffering TBI,
will have to learn to walk and talk again - start life anew. Yet there are
many more who suffered brain damage from explosions and shock
waves damaging their brain tissue. As many TBI sufferers, they may
not realize or attribute the range of cognitive and emotional problems
may be due to brain damage.

If there is any hope of treating TBI it can no longer be a silent epidemic.
Our men and women of the armed services deserve to know what's in
store for them after a TBI. They can expect irritability - they may yell
at their loved ones and not know why. They can expect to be confused,
and unable to comprehend simple things - like the time of day, or how
to schedule an appointment. They may become incontinent - and have to
learn how to use the lue again. Whatever the afflictions - these soldiers
may be changed for ...(ever) and we all need this epidemic out of the
closet so we can know the truth, know what to expect so they can prepair,

hell if TBI strikes every 15 seconds we all need to know about it.

Tell us your story now that you or your loved one is home. How were you
(they) injured - what's changed? What's been most helpful?
