ABI / TBI Traumatic Brain Injury

Take a looksee at the informative links to websites and media about ABI / TBI Traumatic Brain Injury.

I am a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) Survivor and have been since March of 2000 when my car was rear-ended while I was stopped at a red light. A TBI is an invisible illness that can be as devastating to the victim as well as their family and friends. And in my experience, most doctors do not have a clue about TBI/ABI.

A traumatic brain injury TBI is defined as an insult to the brain caused by a direct blow to the skull via closed or open head injury.

An acquired brain injury (ABI) is defined as an injury to the brain as a result of trauma, stroke, post surgical complications, and/or certain disease processes such as tumors and aneurysms.
