“Bridgid, you are a miracle.” “I remember as your physician telling you these words in our clinic as I reviewed your brain CT scan from your initial head injury. Although you are not alone in suffering a significant traumatic head injury, I believe that you are unique in your positive approach to your recovery, your dedication to sharing your experience, and your commitment to helping and motivating others to overcome their own life obstacles and adversity. As a physician, I deeply and sincerely admire your efforts and your positive attitude in dealing with a truly difficult and challenging personal experience. I am always pleased to hear of the many positive life changes that have occurred for you as you continue on your journey towards recovery. I also always get a kick out of your ability to share your experiences with the medical system and in our clinic when you speak publicly. I wish you good luck and great success on your book, Discovering a Life’s Purpose and I hope that your message of hope, recovery, and optimism reaches as many people as possible so that they can benefit from your experience, wisdom, and wit. Although we sometimes are witness to events that are miraculous, sometime the real miracles are people like you.” (9/18/14)
