When I first started to write music after my brain injury, I never expected to be a singer/songwriter for my career. Like ever. We were just focused on getting through each day, my parents were taking me for brain injury rehab therapy most days and we didn't even know if I'd ever get out of it.
My daily reality consisted of short term memory loss, headaches, light sensitivity, overstimulation, fatigue, word finding / communication problems, and more. I constantly felt alone, hopeless, and afraid. And that's when I began to write songs. Never even thought of making a cd until someone asked for one... and I seriously thought they were crazy for suggesting it! Why in the world would I make a cd when I couldn't even put my clothes on in the right order most days?!? That's actually what I thought!! I never would have believed it if you told me that now, 9 years post-brain injury, I'd be touring the country, sharing hope, supporting other survivors & caregivers through @hopeafterheadinjury, and recording music in Nashville...it's so surreal!❤ I still struggle daily with TBI symptoms, but I've learned to embrace the journey. Every single part of this journey has been by the grace of God. And its so exciting to think that I'm still just getting started.😊
Stay tuned this week for a fun announcement about what we've been working on in Nashville!🎶😍 I'm so excited!!✨ #itscoming #verysoon
