‘Concussion Recovery’ is a road map for recovery and helps brain injured people who want to rebuild their lives get healthier more quickly and with much less frustration. Its unique advantage is that it considers the recovery journey from all aspects and is based on the author’s first hand experience.
A brain injury affects every aspect of our lives. “When we have a head injury, we are defragging and rebuilding our computer,” said Colleen. The first in a series, ‘Concussion Recovery: Rebuilding the Injured Brain’ discusses everything from nutrition to music, personal boundaries and emotional aspects to healing.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I was pretty surprised that so little was known about the brain when I had my ABI .
I became determined no one else needed to travel the path I had to take for recovery.
I was self employed and could not afford to wait for 6 months to see a specialist who then would spend another 6 months referring you to someone else, to confirm that you were concussed or normal. I knew I was in trouble, I just did not realize how bad or how long it would take to recover. Stress is a major factor with deterring healing, the not knowing and the wondering if ever I would return was a stress that no one needs to experience.
