Craig, we share some differing views on the core principles to maintain resilience – strictly on a personal level, anything working for anyone working at it is the best principle for them – but I do want to take the time to say I have scarcely been blessed with the time to explore your many publications and posts on TBI and related issues; even without full discovery of your writing, I want to let you know how prolific and passionate you seem. I truly appreciate this work you do, and have started my own discussion website blog fairly similar to yours. Once I work out the aesthetic kinks, I wish to emulate your work ethic and kind spirit in my writing, and in my invitation to others who may wish to contribute their stories. It is hard to regain written composition at my previous level, but if people can survive some perservation and run-ons, I am healing every moment and these will fade to dust in no time at all. Best of all the health and luck that there out there and that it comes your way, you deserve it!

An e-book being written and uploaded to Amazon, as I write it.


broken dreams (glass) 


As children bring

their broken toys

With tears for us to mend,

I brought my broken dreams

to God

Because He was my Friend.

But then instead

of leaving Him

in peace to work alone,

I hung around

and tried to help

With ways that

that were my own.

At last I snatched them back

and cried,

“How can You be so slow?”

“My child,” He said,

“What could I do?

– Robert J Burdette (July 30, 1844 – November 19, 1914)

 “ Trust in the Lord with all your heart

and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways submit to him,
and he will make your paths straight.”

Proverbs 3:5-6 New International Version (NIV)

“But seek ye first the kingdom of God…

Sean Dudas is a California native and remains active and interested in many corners of life. In November of 2015, Sean suffered a moderate traumatic brain injury from a fall; his life since has been solely devoted to the topic of this blog - TBI and other forms of acquired brain injury. With his passions and life as he imagined it to be on an indeterminate hold during his rehabilitation and recovery, he began this blog and a TBI health advocacy group. Through uniform rules of professional responsibility and ethics, he hopes the health advocate profession may be an affordable adjunct to the team needed by every brain injured person and those caring for them. He hopes that this blog will continue educating and supporting survivors of brain injury, their caregivers, and anyone interested in this devastating medical sojourn, alongside the discovery of a new self and a meaningful life outside the treatment environment. Sean is active in supporting mental health and suicide crisis support, various manifestations of trauma in children and adults, and is a Doctor of Law with a focus on health and science law. He is also an athlete, poet, writer, and nature enthusiast.


  1. Thanks for the reblog, Sean
    Best wishes from the First City to see the light
    Time for “beddy byes” at 7 pm here (feel exhausted), so will reply to your comment “first thing” tomorrow am (my best time, by far)
