About the Author:

Writing has always been a large part of Sylvia's life. While in her teens, the experience of writing opened up whole new worlds for her as the characters she created became, for a short time, almost as much a part of her life as those in her reality. She has written four fiction novels; one story for children in the middle grade age group and three women's fiction novels. Also in the works is a pictorial book. Using her own photography, this picture journal will be titled, "With Eyes Wide Open - What We See When We're Looking". Over the years she has had many articles, short stories and essays published in newspapers and magazines within Canada and the United States. "A Roller Coaster Ride with Brain Injury (For Loved Ones)" has been written as a result of a tragedy in Sylvia's personal life. She knows first-hand what it is like to be told that 'your loved one has suffered a brain injury'. Sylvia is also busy with five grown children, one daughter, four sons and their respective 'significant others' as well as being grandmother to five grandchildren, with two more expected within the very near future. Sylvia enjoys photography, gardening, entertaining and exploring B.C.'s gulf islands where she can relax and listen to the sound of waves crashing onto the shore.

Book Description Trafford Publishing, Canada, 2008. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.A Roller Coaster Ride With Brain Injury (For Loved Ones) has been written to assist those who are experiencing a similar tragedy to realize they are not alone. By reading my story it will help them adjust to the monumental changes in their life and that of their injured family member. They will learn that it is sometimes two steps forward and one step back. In the days ahead, they will learn not to take things personally if their brain injured loved one becomes angry or verbally abusive and they will discover the importance of setting boundaries for themselves. As well, it is important not to feel guilty if they wish time for themselves or if they occasionally feel frustrated; their life has changed also. Initially the most crucial things to do are ask the right questions ; take control of the situation ; be proactive ; be their own advocate for their injured family member and realize the necessity of having support . These are vital when battling cognitive and behavioral problems, frustration and anger management difficulties, confusion and short-term memory loss as well as other brain injury impairments. Included with my story are sample cognitive exercises that we used at an early stage in Larry s development which helped immensely in his progress towards recovery. As time goes on they will learn that there are adaptations and adjustments that will be necessary to make. There will also be many bumps in the road but things really do get better.
