Barb Dixon, at the time of her head injury was a stay at home mom and professional freelance makeup artist. In May 2016 at the age of 38 she incurred her injury in an unexpected way, a wheelbarrow that was hung up in her garage, fell striking her on the top of her head with the motion of a hammer strike. Knocked unconscious for an unknown period of time before coming to, crawling into the house was all she could manage. She didn’t know it then but that moment would stretch into 7 years of recovery. Barb suffered with PCS and the psychological, physical, mental, and emotional turmoil that PCS entails as well as late diagnosed PTSD. She had to, once again in her life be her own champion and advocate. With the support of her loving family and with dogged determination while enduring a long list of impairments, Barb continued to seek answers and find the help that no one seemed to have for her, and she did. Her journey is, as we know with brain injury recovery, a constant work in progress. Now that she is well through the darkest valleys of her PCS recovery, she wants to share her story with others who find themselves where she once was. Her hope is to offer validation and compassion to those who are still in the thick of it.
