TBI One Love Survivor Daniel Wally
Hello fellow Survivors, my name is Daniel and I am from Tuscaloosa Alabama.
Back in April of 2021, I was a passenger in a car accident and ended up being the only survivor. All my organs dropped and I was incapacitated 3 times.
I had a few ribs that were fractured and more than likely punctured my lung and caused me to have an impiema to my right lung which is a bleed that got infected. I was diagnosed with a TBI brain bleed on my front right lobe of my brain.
I was in a coma for a month with no one knowing if I was gonna wake up or not. I ended up awakening and remaining in the hospital for a total of two months. After this injury I ended up learning to walk and drive again. I went through months of physical, speech, and occupational therapies.
Now after my therapies, and being out of work for 6 months, I was able to return to my previous work position as an assistant manager at Lowes Home Improvement! I’ve been back to work now for 2 1/2 months and doing great. I’m currently involved in a study for TBI patients who are now driving. I have a camera in my car that monitors me, reaction times, and stopping and going.
If there is anyway I can try to help, please reach out to me. Thank you TBI One Love for all you do for our community of Survivors and the education you allow others to learn from us. I am very grateful for everything you do and offer!
