Availability: Ready to download

Who Am I Again tells the story of a journey Amanda Nachman began on January 20, 2011 when she experienced a concussion/mild traumatic brain injury (MTBI), whiplash, and a back/hip injury. This elementary school teacher found herself in a medical world where her injury appeared to be uncommon to anyone not classified as an athlete or in the military. Her whole life changed Who Am I Again tells the story of a journey Amanda Nachman began on January 20, 2011 when she experienced a concussion/mild traumatic brain injury (MTBI), whiplash, and a back/hip injury. This elementary school teacher found herself in a medical world where her injury appeared to be uncommon to anyone not classified as an athlete or in the military. Her whole life changed on the day of her accident. Rather than letting herself go down the rabbit hole one might choose when the only profession you have ever loved is no longer an option, she chose, and continues to choose, to be an advocate for herself and to create a positive new life and career. Ms. Nachman not only shares her emotional journey in her story through sadness, anger, and humor, but also shares her challenges with our medical and legal system. Who Am I Again integrates articles and resources to define terms related to Ms. Nachman’s injuries, and to show the reader that her situation is not necessarily as unique as the doctors made it out to be. What is clear in her story, which is unfortunately the story of many others, is that although doctors try, people who have experienced a MTBI cannot be defined by one textbook definition. Because Ms. Nachman experienced this injury on the job, Who Am I Again also delves into a bit of the workman’s compensation process and the challenges in working with an employer whom she felt was not supportive of her situation. Throughout the book, Ms. Nachman gives recommendations based on her legal and medical experiences. This book is not only beneficial to those who are survivors of a mild traumatic brain injury (MTBI), and their caregivers, but also medical professionals who work with this population.
