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!!!
