Summary
I did not want anyone to ever feel as disorientated and bewildered as I did." – Christine Durham. Unlocking the Brain (previously published as Doing Up Buttons)brings to life Christine's personal experience of brain injury - from being unable to walk, talk, see or think clearly, to how she regained her life, her thoughts and her confidence. In 1991 Christine was involved in a horrific car accident and suffered extensive injuries including Acquired Brain Injury (ABI). Not only is Unlocking The Brain a guidebook for people with brain injury to help them come to terms with the daily experience of ABI, it is also a reference book to help professionals understand the backstory of their clients. Brain injury not only damages a person's brain and body (as recognized by the medical profession) it also damages the person's beliefs, hope, honour, trust, safety and security
