Taylor

Hi, my name is Taylor.  I’m 20 years old and I have been involved with YMCA Heads Together/Heads Together for ABI since 2005.  I’ve had an acquired brain injury since 2003.  I was hit by a car while crossing a street and spent 2 months in hospital.  It has been 12 years and I am still dealing with the consequences.  I get tired easily, I find it hard to concentrate and I can be very emotional at times.  I was very lost after my car accident because I didn’t know anyone else with an ABI.  Then I found YMCA Heads Together camp.  I met others with an ABI, made friends, even fell in love!  I have been a volunteer on the ABI team sine 2013 and Camp has not only helped me through some of my darkest times, but has also brought me huge happiness and has helped me figure out what I want to do with my life: help others that have been in similar situations to me.  Living with an ABI can be difficult, but knowing you’re not alone makes it a better experience.
