Hello my name is Natalie Bramwell. On April 22nd (Earth Day) in 2015, I was walking by a construction site on a farm that was located deep in the mountains. While there a small cut tree being used fell, hitting me in the back of the head, then pinning me to the ground!
Thus, I had sustained a Intraparenchymal Brain Hemorrhage appearing like a blood splatter down my left hemisphere. This was not my first Brain Injury though, but it was by far my worst! The first few months I was on assisted bedrest with stroke-like symptoms.
It took a year of very limited activity before I could go back to work. My first head injury was a fall at age 14 which led to seizures and consistent migraines.
I have been called very lucky in my healing outcome.
