About Me

lancebarnI’m a Husband to my beautiful wife of 15 years. I’m the father of our 3 incredible children. Little did we know, when I left for work that morning, a different Husband/Father would return. On September 12, 2017, I became a statistic on the Traumatic Brain Injury list. The incident was caused by a fall and striking the back of my head. Upon regaining consciousness, I realized something was severely wrong. Fast forward to the Emergency Room same day. Test and Scans were conducted. First, of soon to be many diagnoses was, a Severe Concussion. The words that came from the Dr. next still echo through my mind. You have a Bleed on the PONS area of your brain. Now the PONS of your brain are located on the brain stem.They are vital in your being alive. They are responsible for an extreme amount of message relaying to other parts of the brain. If these are affected it can cause many problems and death. Many Neurologist, Therapist and Specialist have become my new family. I have been in Brain Injury Rehabilitation/Therapy almost a year now. The progress I’ve made is wonderful. This is who I am now. This is my “New Normal.” I’m still Healing and Recovering. These thoughts and blogs I post are what have and still are helping me through difficult times. Many are uplifting and encouraging. However, some are of depression and anxiety. If you have the time, will you join me on my Road to Recovery……
