My TBI story

March 8, 2020
My TBI story

On 1988 I was assaulted near the old Yankee Stadium because it by a 15 year old boy due to an argument between my daughter and another girl. I was struck in the back of my head with a baseball bat. I was in a coma and taken across town, The Bronx, to a trauma center. I was in a coma for 5 days and in rehab for 3 months. I went back to work 1989-2005. I worked in NYC EMS then and with advance medical skills I had difficulty to remember things. My learning skills were poor and I was forced out of work and retired after 27 years of service. After that I created a page in Facebook called News on Traumatic Brain Injury. I share interesting articles and information about Traumatic Brain Injury. Back in the 80’s there was very little knowledge on TBI. My page is all about news involved with TBI and so on. This is my 2nd calling, and have been doing this for 5 years now. I also started sharing this information through Twitter as well. People can find me on Twitter at TBINewsPage.
