A Special ebook for Caregivers, Survivors and Treatment Providers
By Laura Bruno, M.A., RMT
What people are saying:
"I love how you are tying it to the Wizard of Oz (And YOU are really Glinda helping others help themselves!).
I could not imagine what it must have been like for you to feel so confused and overwhelmed with every little thing each day.
This book truly helps me understand!"
"The 'Oz' analogy is something I had never thought of and it is perfect. ... The book will be a great resource. ...
I especially like that you offer ways to deal with the emotional impact on survivors, friends and family members.
Your book will be of great help to families. I see it all the time, people with TBI are looking for anything that will help,
and conventional medicine can only do so much."
Karen Ruppert-Nurse Manager, trauma rehabilitation unit at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle, Washington
This is phenomenal! I am so excited to see the e-book. ...It looks amazing, wonderful and beautifully done.
I am sure that this will be a profound help for many people. I know that this will be so helpful for the people in our group.
Robin and I are giving a presentation of our work on Feb. 2 for the Virginia statewide Therapeutic Riding Instructors Conference.
We will be sure to have your information available for people. If you have flyers or postcards or anything printed that we can use
announcing the e-book, this would be most helpful.
(Sandy Rakowitz--One Heart Healing Center)
"I looked over your book yesterday and am impressed at all the great information you have compiled as resources to aid in healing and support--
and your own narrative which will surely be an inspiration to many others.
I'm sure I will find this helpful in my connections and will be pleased to recommend it. You've done a fine work here! Congratulations!
Blessings and joy to you in your new year!"

"Just wanted to let you know that I absolutely loved your book. Especially the references and parallels to The Wizard of Oz.
Your writing style is clear, authentic, down to earth and makes everything so easy to understand and to connect to.
Your book is a look into your life's adventure as it's informative and educative not only for TBI patients but even more for their families,
friends, coworkers and health care practitioners. I also loved all the information you shared with readers not only on TBI but also
FMS, CFS and Lyme disease. These are all mostly 'mysterious' misunderstood and often misdiagnosed diseases and you bring them all to life,
to give them a voice that every reader can understand and/or relate to. You open many eyes with this book,
in an extremely educative and informative, also touching way. Also, you are a survivor, a warrior. Congratulations!"
"Laura: I love this e-book.
It's well-written, funny with great description and analogies. First of all, thank you for the font, layout, etc. The big print with lots of open space makes it so much easier for my head. I am identifying with SO MUCH already. I can't thank you enough for the two paragraphs on page 64 where you say we aren't crazy, hysterical, weak, etc. And doubting myself was easier than accepting what happened. I know that intellectually, but I still give in to those doubts sometimes. My primary care physician has told me repeatedly You don't seem to grasp the severity of your injury.
Again, Laura, thank you for this much-needed book. I can't wait to read more.
My best to you, Terri
"I'm quite impressed with your writing, and how far you've come since the accident. ... You do a fabulous job of describing how life changed for you after the accident. I'm certain this book will prove most useful to many people--those that suffer TBI, and those that care for and love TBI victims"
Patricia Spork, author and mother of a TBI survivor
"Laura: Please let me rave about one more thing, and then I'll stop.
One of the best things about this book is that you offer tips that
improve day-to-day living for those of us with head injuries.
It's a blessing to have instructions for simple things to do on my own
that help reduce pain and cut through the fog. It's all about quality
of life -- which is everything."
