As much as I write about my brain injury, I sometimes feel like I can’t really explain exactly what it’s like. Everything I read says different things about what it feels like but that’s not always what I feel. I don’t know if others feel the same way but as much as I try to share and be open about it there are still some dark spots I’d rather not share.
What everybody sees is the outside, not the darker things inside, and sometimes it’s better to not share those parts. Then when you read things it feels like you’re going through something completely different than everybody else with the same diagnosis.
Until you hear something that sounds familiar. I found that in The Invisible Rain Cloud, a story about what it’s like to live with a Traumatic Brain Injury. It was like reading my mind, it’s a video truly showing what a TBI feels like, your thoughts from the minute you wake up after the injury.
I know it’s not easy for those around us not knowing what it going on inside out heads so here is that story, which may seem sad and gloomy but I think it’s the opposite and incredibly well done.
The Invisible Rain Cloud: What’s It Like To Live With A Traumatic Brain Injury?
Published by mariacristinasanfeliu
I’m an aspiring writer still looking for exactly what I want to write about, with a lot of creativity, imagination and desire to write.
I studied Writing and Rhetoric at Syracuse University where I explored many different sides of writing through my classes and extracurricular activities in order to narrow my search for an identity as a writer.
I have written for Citrus TV Noticias and La Voz magazine, both of which gave me the chance to explore different mediums in which to write in. Through Citrus TV Noticias I also gained experience in translating from English to Spanish and vice versa, which is also something that I would be interested in working on since I am fluent in both of these languages. I was also an intern at Syracuse University Press where I got hands on experience in what goes into actually editing and publishing a book.
Through out the last four years I have faced a lot of challenges, which helped chape the person I am today. After being in a tragic car accident, being in comma, having a Traumatic Brain Injury, and being in therapy for over a year, I am a new me, willing to face challenges and knowing how to deal with them. I want to write about my accident and life after it to help others, show them it can be done and help in any way I can.

Reblogged this on Max Mteliso’s words and commented:
I’m of the opinion that TBI suffers or any people suffering alike know best about how they feel daily more than any human experts using human intelligence. They maybe able to know better the findings are aided by algorithm intelligence or as such. Only you can hear the whispers of your aunthentic self. Lastly it within you to enlighten the world by share your invaluable dark secrets.
Thanks for the reblog!!! I think it’s because we don’t feel the way we used to, we know something is different.
