Summary

An important book for anyone impacted by brain injury. Author and brain injury survivor Carole Starr describes the journey in ways that survivors, caregivers, and professionals will relate to and learn from. Tips and strategies include:

  • Recognizing what acceptance is/isn’t and why it’s important for brain injury survivors
  • Getting through the challenging first year after brain injury
  • Moving past denial
  • Coping with the loss of one’s old life and sense of self
  • Creating a new life as a brain injury survivor
  • Documenting and celebrating progress
  • Responding to insensitive comments by others
  • Finding something positive in the negative that is brain injury
  • Letting go of the past and moving forward.

This title includes a workbook PDF, with questions that encourage listeners to take Carole’s strategies and apply them to their own experience. These questions can be answered on one’s own, with family members, with rehabilitation professionals, or with a brain injury support group.

To Root and to Rise is a powerful resource for anyone living with a traumatic brain injury, post-concussion syndrome, stroke, brain tumor, or other brain trauma, for family caregivers and friends of brain injury survivors, for brain injury support groups, and for medical and neuro-rehabilitation professionals.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Thank you for writing it

This book went straight to my heart. After a very bad car crash I sustained a MTBI and my life has been upside down ever since. It has been 16 months since then and boy I have struggled with the process, specially the acceptance part. I’m also a Type A person, Sr VP of a $7Billion company and my brain is what got me here. I’ve been trying different treatments to get me back to where I was and although there has been some progress I’m still far away of where I was. All the medical professionals told me I should accept the fact and let go, but to me that’s is like quitting and I’m not a quitter. With the first few chapters I cried buckets of tears because finally somebody understood what I’m going through, the following chapters gave me tools to deal and to learn to accept my new circumstances. I thank you for writing this book from the bottom of my heart, it’s been inspiring and brings a light of hope.
