101 Tips for Recovering from Traumatic Brain Injury 978-1-61599-282-9

Kelly Bouldin Darmofal suffered a severe TBI in 1992; currently she holds a Masters in Special Education from Salem College, NC. Her memoir Lost In My Mind: Recovering From Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) tells her story of tragedy and triumph. Kelly will be teaching "TBI: An Overview for Educators" at Salem College. Kelly’s "tips" were learned during two decades of recovery and perseverance; they include:

  • Ways to avoid isolation and culture shock post-TBI
  • Tips for staying organized in the face of instant chaos
  • Strategies for caretakers and teachers of TBI survivors
  • Life philosophies that reject despair
  • How to relearn that shoes must match
  • Why one alarm clock is never enough, and
  • A breath of humor for a growing population with a "silent illness" -- TBI
  • Those who suffer from TBI should benefit from Kelly Darmofal's advice. She speaks often of the value of a sense of humor in dealing with TBI symptoms and quotes Viktor Frankl who believed that humor was one of the "...soul’s weapons in the fight for self preservation." I strongly recommend her work.
    --Dr. George E. Naff, NCC, LPC, Diplomate in LogotherapyKelly is a wonderful resource about TBI for survivors, caregivers, teachers, and the entire community. The wisdom gained from her own experience makes her believable; the frankness and sense of humor that she reveals as she writes makes her authentic... Kelly and her publications have become a trusted resource for our clients who are surviving from a TBI.
