This memoir tells of my recovery from a coma when I was 13. Because I live a normal life now, people are surprised to learn that I have had a Traumatic Brain Injury. They’re always so curious: How long were you in a coma? Do you remember anything? How did it happen? This book answers all those questions and more. An emotional Part I allows readers to experience the range of emotions my family felt as I lay unconscious. Part II describes my frustrations upon gaining consciousness: my right side was paralyzed and I couldn't speak. Part III tells how I was received once I returned to eighth grade and follows through to high school graduation, describing physical, social, and emotional problems I had along the way. This story shows how I met these problems with determination and how I accepted the ones I couldn’t change.
