Through her poetry, Heidi Lerner presents a thorough, subjective viewpoint as well as a professional and objective understanding of brain injury. With a creative flair, Ms. Lerner both educates and strikes a chord, sharing struggles with individual changes, loss and personal challenges, as well as ways that shes found that help her to get by.
Gray Matters offers a deeper understanding of the inner-workings of the mind and how in many ways, brain injury affects life as we know it. I want to educate people about what brain injury is and what the rehabilitation process entails, said author Heidi Lerner. I approach the topics of the brain, its injury, resulting symptoms, rehabilitation, academic interventions, natures healing influence, and the great benefit of support groups.
I present all of this in a way thats casual and fun. In her poetry, Ms. Lerner articulates about aspects of brain injury such as the following: Mood swings and depression Balance and the right and left hemispheres of the brain Complications of injury to different areas of the brain The greatest challenges of head injuries Accomplishments in rehabilitation Keeping the faith and An unending circle of support Gray Matters helps brain injury survivors to better understand their injuries and themselves as well as by enabling them to be better understood by others.
These writings exemplify the potential of inner-strength, adaptability and persistence for survivors of trauma. The greatest gift we can give to those who have lived to tell the tale of thischallenge is our awareness and understanding of living with this reality.
