"It's very difficult for those who have brain injuries because our injuries are not visible

"I sustained my brain injury in a car accident in October of 2010. It took 4.5 years for the insurance company to finally acknowledge my injury and provide the required treatment. Insurance companies will do whatever it takes to ensure that they don't have to pay for medical bills. I was forced to self educate regarding head injuries, and be my own advocate. It's very difficult for those who have brain injuries because our deficits and injuries are not visible. People are unaware of the daily struggle one has to function. Everyday tasks that should be simple are an obstacle. The silver lining is to these difficulties is seeing the progress. Being able to quantify the progress helps me get through my day, and helps me reach my next goal. Every brain injury is different and everyone's recovery goes at its own pace. I use my art to promote brain injury awareness, and positive mental health. It's important to encourage meditation and creativity to help the brain recover! Hope people find their silver lining soon!" -Saba, TBI Survivor ••• ➡️Share your story for#braininjuryawarenessmonth!
