Whoa, baby. Let’s back up a bit.

I have a tendency to be lengthy. I know this. My friends and family know this. And if you’ve read even one of my posts, you know this too.

I also have a tendency to jump around from one topic to another, chasing after my thoughts excitedly and forgetting listeners are trying to follow along. Has my AVM caused this? Or is it just who I am/was, regardless of brain injury? Sometimes I wonder. But then again, I digress.

That said, I want to back up and explain whose stories I’m sharing. I’ll do my best to keep it short.

Here’s a table summarizing my participants, their brain injury, and my interactions with each of them.

7 participants, 16 interviews

I also choose to share our stories in the present tense (which is a little confusing at times, I know). Our stories contribute to our narratives, and our narratives contribute to our identities.
