Review for PINK Concussions Inc, Norwalk, CT, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am going to keep this short as I know there will be so many reviews soon and I want you to be able to read them all as they each one is so important to how this amazing group has helped each of us.

I am a domestic abuse survivor. I have been beaten, held under water, smothered with pillows, and strangled; amongst other things. I never knew these things could lead so many years down the road (28 as of today) to all of the issues I have. About 15 years ago I started to have cognitive issues that have progressively gotten worse over time. I have also had increased migraine headaches and developed a studder when I am tired or stressed.
I read an article on a local researcher and saw that I had all of the same symptoms and it dawned on me that I may have a TBI! I reached out and she reached back. She connected me to Pink Concussions. I have found a sisterhood of women who experience things like me, no matter how they received their injuries. I was asked to come to a symposium to speak as the voice of domestic violence related to TBI. I gladly accepted and have been doing it ever since. It has been such a healing thing for me. Not only the symposiums where I speak about what happened and how it has effected me but also the bonds I have made with the women in the group. We all support each other in this wonderful womens group. Having a bad day? 100 women will send you words of encouragement. Had a new treatment? 100 women might ask you questions to see if they should ask their doctors if it might be right for them. Make a joke and tell a funny or post a funny meme?! 100 likes and 100 lol’s. Have a new symptom? 100 prayers are instantly sent out for you. Yup, this is an AMAZING group of women and I was totally blessed the day I was introduced to it. I love my Pink Concussion Sisters!!
