Unbelievable Connections in Upstate South Carolina

I attended the Brain Injury Associations state conference a couple of days this week; this conference is held for people all over the state that have Brain Injuries due to strokes, car accidents, falls, disease, etc.  They hold many sessions during the day that caregivers, providers, family members or just people from the public can attend to learn about specific brain injuries and how they impact lives.

 As I was there, it was enlightening to see many of the survivors whom would normally have some social anxieties immediately connect with other survivors, it was almost like they can pick up on each other’s anxiety and try to comfort them.  It was so refreshing to see these connections that were made almost immediately and knowing that everyone of these people felt accepted because other people with their same deficits surrounded them.


 It made me think, how sad is it that the public makes these wonderful people feel as if they don’t belong because they are different.  Why is it we allow fear of the unknown to make people who have survived a horrific ordeal in their life not feel welcome in our lives. 


 My challenge to anyone that reads this is to take the fear of something in your life that is unknown and use that energy to become familiar and comfortable with it; you never know when and how your life or the life of a loved one could be changed and if that happens, you would not want to feel unwelcomed and unaccepted; would you?
