I had a serious TBI Mar. 22 and i am just beginning to have "feild trips" to chuch, mall or library with health aide. I used to be a very very active volunteer in my community and many people know me. I have some aphagia but i don't know how to cope with the horror when friendly acquaintances see my wheelchair, my sloping face or hear my voice. I'M STILL ME IN THIS BROKEN SNAIL'S SHELL!!! Any suggestions on how to handle the "Oh No! What happened??" Without imposing guilt on them or dismissing their concern? All in all i'm pretty positive person and hopeful of progress but i can't convey that. Thanks for all you suggestions i appreciate them.
