Healing A Brain Injury; Laura Renner
Laura Renner is a nurse turned author. Healing a brain injury is the topic of today's podcast. Laura received a brain injury in 2021, and because of this, she started thinking about her past. She discovered she had complex post-traumatic stress disorder from when she was a child. In an attempt to recover, she spent about a year and a half trying different ways to heal from her trauma.
She wrote a book called “No, I'm Not Fine. Thank You.” In this book, Laura talks about how she got better from her old wounds and became strong again. Now, she spends her time learning about how to heal her body and mind from trauma, and she helps other people do the same thing.
Laura first wanted to take care of babies in neonatal intensive care. However, because she had health problems, she had to focus on getting better and writing her story. In her book, she tells about her struggle with anxiety, strange health issues, and how she learned about the things that happened to her when she was younger.
Laura knows a lot about different ways to heal from trauma, like something called Somatic Experiencing, EMDR, craniosacral therapy, neurofeedback, and how to control your nervous system. She also knows about getting better after a brain injury and how our brains can change, which is called neuroplasticity. She can teach us how to change our thinking, about taking care of babies in the hospital, and about how to speak up for yourself when you're getting medical help. Laura wants her book and what she's been through to help other people feel inspired and to find their own way to heal.
