Even though there is no evidence to support it, some people believe that life-threatening injury always results in permanent disability or death. Such a belief is wrong! Doctors, nurses, social workers, pharmacists, therapists, spiritual leaders, family members, significant others, friends, neighbors, caregivers, and a variety of other factors definitely affect both survival and recovery. There is plenty of evidence that supports the belief that your contributions matter. If you want to make a difference, if you want recovery to be as effective as possible, then Beyond Injury™ is the right blog for you.
The main goals of this blog are to:
- Create a safe global community in which people who are affected by life-threatening injury feel comfortable sharing their stories, questions, and compensation strategies.
- Help people who are directly or indirectly are affected by a life-threatening illness create, customize, and achieve the SMART goals that enable them to journey beyond injury.
A quick search of the internet will reveal that there are many websites and blogs dedicated to anatomical descriptions of injury, one person’s experience dealing with a life-threatening injury, the effectiveness of medicine, and referrals to doctors. This blog is different because it does not focus on the anatomy of a specific injury, one person’s exclusive experience, comparisons of medicine, or doctor referrals. People like you and me, who are either directly or indirectly affected by a life-threatening injury, are the focus of this blog.
The founders of Beyond Injury™ believe that many of the posts and comments on its blog will address recovery from brain injury but, if demand is strong enough, future articles will address recovery from other life-threatening injuries as well. Some articles in this blog will be written by, or for, people who may lose their battle to survive. Some articles will be written by brain injury survivors. Other articles will be written by the spouses, significant others, parents, children, siblings, friends, neighbors, co-workers, caregivers, therapists, and medical professionals of brain injury survivors. You are invited to share your stories, ask your questions, and reveal your favorite compensation strategies in the Comments section at the bottom of each post.
Beyond Injury™ is a community of learning and sharing. Although inquisitiveness, disagreement, and friendly banter are welcome, there is absolutely no place on this blog, or in this world, for hateful, racist, discriminatory, harassing, or offensive comments. If you have any question about whether or not a comment might be inappropriate, please do not post the comment.
