Hello everyone,

While trying to discover more about what is happening to me and my head I can across another article that helped me.

I don't know how to put the link on, but on Google if you type in the following it comes up:

[(Ethical Practice in Brain Injury Rehabilitation)] [Author: Joanna Collicutt McGrath] published on (August, 2007) Paperback – 16 Aug 2007

by Joanna Collicutt McGrath (Author)

Its a book you are supposed to pay for, but this is a preview but says a lolt in itself (you have to skip the first few pages on it as they are credits and introductions).

I am going to buy a copy if its available I think.

Hope it helps someone.

I had a quick look at the book you mentioned Jules...it is aimed at professionals working in the field and deals with the ethics of a patient centred approach (which would of course be ideal but we all know the reality is very different) so I am not sure how useful I would find it.

I have to say the one book that really resonated with me (and still does because I reread it often) is "Over my Head" by Claudia L Osborn. It is billed as "A Doctor's Own Story of Head Injury from the Inside Looking Out" ... and is the story of an American female doctor who sustained a TBI in an accident. Apart from the fact it is an American experience of BI it was the only thing I read that actually made sense to me at the time and it was one of those lightbulb moments when I understood that I was not alone in my experiences and feelings....it felt like it simply said this is what happened and this is how it was... and I could (and can) identify with so much of it.


In my own quest for knowledge, I read numerous articles, presentations, watched videos etc. Whilst it made me a little better informed the one thing it never did was to help me find a remedy or improve.... So I would ask yourself what you want out of books or research
