“Progressive and increasing support is necessary for an individual to attain the most complete recovery possible.” - Unknown
The nature of a Recovery from a brain injury is not universal amongst survivors. Each and every survivor needs to take into account the nature of his/her personality and how they can obtain the best results. A gifted clinician is one who learns as much as possible regarding the patient. Progressivity is a beautiful thing in relation to any sort of a recovery. There always several facets to any sort of a recovery. A brain injury may lead to many changes throughout the daily lives of survivors. The level of recovery is greatly influenced by the proactivity of the survivor. Survivors in my opinion are the best givers of advice to others. A person who has been through much of the recovery his or her self is better able to give valuable and real world advice to others. Support must come throughout the entirety of an individual’s recovery. Every person is different but others have to realize that much of the recovery is dependent on the amount of drive and determination that an individual has. I am continually a large proponent of people who have sustained injuries helping to encourage others. Early in a recovery the individual may be unable to cognitively understand what is required of them to attain the most complete recovery possible. Supportive family and supportive medical staff can be instrumental to ensure that survivor is always given the best chance at the most complete recovery possible.
Survivors can be encouraged by their loved ones and family as they attempt to move forward in his/her life. In my opinion I utilized the increasing supports that were provided to me later in my recovery. Certain aspects of life are forever different and it is incredibly important for an individual to realize that they are not alone. Recovery from a brain injury can take many different avenues and it is important that a survivor be supported along the way. I am forever grateful to my family and team of supporters who have helped me along the way. I am forever indebted to them and remind myself of how fortunate that I have been. I would love to hear any comments that you may have and I thank you for reading.
