Through my experience I learned a painful reality. Learning to accept ourselves when other people can’t or won’t can be very difficult. Such a difficulty can leave us feeling stuck behind invisible walls.
Background Information on my Living behind the invisible Wall
As you may know, I sustained a traumatic brain injury when I was 10 years old in 1967. I sustained an open skull fracture with right frontal lobe damage, a severe brain bruise with brain stem involvement.
In 1967 traumatic brain injury was not on the “map” of consideration, nor was the concept of invisible disabilities.
Consequently, once my external wounds healed, the impact of my traumatic brain injury was never again factored into the difficulties that I experienced in life. As a result, I found myself stuck behind invisible walls. Invisible walls that led me to believe there was something wrong with me.
Behind the Invisible Walls of a Brain Injury and Invisible Disability
Behind the invisible walls, I felt flawed and defective for many years. I felt flawed and defective because I was unable to meet the expectations of many people. People who could not accept the possibility that my life was being affected the my traumatic brain injury.
But who could know as once my external wounds healed and I looked normal.
