I have just finished my second cycle at the "Brain Injury Day Treatment Program" at the Rusk Institute of NYU Medical Center.

Before I started this training, I was unaware and didn't think I had any problems. I thought I could go right back to college. My family disagreed. At the time, I was arguing a lot and said hurtful things. I never wanted to, but I didn't know how to stop. This convinced me to come to Rusk and learn about my brain injury.
