Kelly Bouldin Darmofal suffered a severe TBI in 1992; currently she holds a Masters in Special Education from Salem College, NC. Her memoir Lost In My Mind: Recovering From Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) tells her story of tragedy and triumph. Kelly will be teaching “TBI: An Overview for Educators” at Salem College. Kelly's “tips” were learned during two decades of recovery and perseverance; they include: Ways to avoid isolation and culture shock post-TBI Tips for staying organized in the face of instant chaos Strategies for caretakers and teachers of TBI survivors Life philosophies that reject despair How to relearn that shoes must match Why one alarm clock is never enough, and A breath of humor for a growing population with a “silent illness”--TBI
Those who suffer from TBI should benefit from Kelly Darmofal's advice. She speaks often of the value of a sense of humor in dealing with TBI symptoms and quotes Viktor Frankl who believed that humor was one of the “…soul's weapons in the fight for self preservation.” I strongly recommend her work.

Kelly is a wonderful resource about TBI for survivors, caregivers, teachers, and the entire community. The wisdom gained from her own experience makes her believable; the frankness and sense of humor that she reveals as she writes makes her authentic… Kelly and her publications have become a trusted resource for our clients who are surviving from a TBI.
