  • You can go around wearing a helmet all your life, and next thing you know your in the ICU, at UCLA medical center, recovering from a brain aneurysm. Hat tip to Dr. Neil Martin. 11 years 100% recovery.

  • In most of the brain injuries victims don't know the extent of damage till long.

  • Hey you can switch sports and maybe possibly you might end up loving it. After my head injury from a car wreck I found a love for weight training, you do not have to go against anyone but yourself. I received my injury when I was 16 now I am 36 working hard at it like I had just received it yesterday 'cause the tragic pain resulting from the injury wil stay with me for the rest of my life.
