My Journey with ABI

My name is Judy Johnston and my ABI story begins seven years ago. When it happened I had spent most of my adult life as Judith A. Johnston, a professional, a Licensed Employee Benefits Consultant and Vice President of a Life Insurance Brokerage. It took many weeks of being in hospital before I came to understand that I had been a victim of a car crash. The injuries I sustained have left me with Acquired Brain Injury, impaired vision, recurring back and neck issues, loss of hearing, the loss of my sense of smell and balance issues. 

It has been, and continues to be, a long journey to recovery, but I now call myself a survivor of a life altering event. Inside I am still that Judith Ann Johnston I was before the accident, and I am grateful for her qualities and strengths that have come through as I slowly make my way down this road I call my “New Normal”.

MARCH OF DIMES - That Omnipotent Beast... FATIGUE

On June 12th I will be speaking, in Barrie, at the March of Dimes ABI Conference. I am looking forward to talking to Survivors about the strategies I have learned from my own experiences, those strategies provided by other ABI Survivors, our caregivers, clinicians and therapists, in tempering the impact of FATIGUE.

Then, as I hope you will all do, I will take some time to enjoy the summer and time with my family and friends. My everyday routines will help keep me in sync until I head back, in the fall, in order to continue moving forward with my speaking engagements as I continue down this road.
