BIAA Brain Injury awareness driving Life more than my brain injury safety Traumatic brain injury


The last time I drove by myself with a license was 3 years, 8 months and 25 days ago.

Today feels like freedom. Self reliance. Being able to drive to get a coffee or to wherever I need to go and not relying on others.

I definitely won’t be driving like I once did, I’m not there yet and don’t know if I ever will be. But I can drive to pick up my son at school or drop him off, which his grandparents have been so great at doing since we don’t live in district.

This is just a huge step and accomplishment and I am ready to drive on my own and know that and know I am safe to do so. I cried when I was telling my husband. It’s a big deal and taken a lot to get here and I know I am so lucky to be able to drive.

I cannot say enough about how great today felt!

I am a TBI Survivor and woman who has been through a lot of good and bad. My goal by this blog is to share what I have learned and how life has happened for me and not to me. I have found purpose in it all and am here to share it. I am also sober and quitting drinking was the best choice for me. I will post about TBI, Brain Injury, life, travel, lessons learned and more. I am not a doctor or a nurse, I am a traumatic brain injury survivor who has lived 40 years of life and have an amazing mindset from it all. None of this is medical advice, that is what your doctor is for or 911 if you are having an true emergency and need help right away. I am here for community and to share all I have learned, you never know who it will help. Click on the white title of the blog post to read, just saying in case you might be confused like I am with all this 🤣
