Brain Dance by Diane G Wilson, a licensed counselor, starts with Diane attending a medical conference for the first time. Diane has to stand in front of 350 people and do a presentation on her book. Being a brain injury survivor for whom traditional medicine offered little help, it took many years for Diane to recover from the impact of her traumatic brain injury through non-traditional resources. It was an extremely long process starting with discovering the correct diagnosis to finding a therapy centre and a treatment regime that would actually help. Diane shares her entire journey from beginning to end, an open and honest account of her daily life and how she overcame insurmountable health problems.

This incredibly captivating story is an education for any person who reads it. Diane deals with concussion, physical brain trauma and everything that goes with it including anxiety, depression, brain fog, and cognitive challenges. The word concussion is derived from the Latin “concutere” – impact from an external blow to the head or internal movement of the brain causing bruising and swelling. Diane’s account of her trauma is compassionate, funny, and relatable. Her story is well written and smooth flowing, making it easy to follow from beginning to end. Diane is such an inspiration in her quest to find answers and solutions. Any person who has read her story will change their perspective on people who are struggling with mental or physical health issues, becoming more understanding and empathetic. Brain Dance by Diane G Wilson is a fantastic book filled with answers to questions to which I didn’t even know I needed answers.
