hi

educating families is the key. My family's knowledge goes back to the early 1960's) My aunt (small, close knit family) was in a car accident. I remember seeing her with head bandaged. A week in the hospital and she was sent home to rest. She was never the same. Even as a kid I saw it.

But she continued her life as a doting wife and mother. Several years later she picked up a rifle (nobody knows where she got it----) at 2:00 AM and shot her sleeping sons. She killed one and permanently disabled the other.

Sent to a mental hospital she was released three years later. That very day she filled her (even then) old fashioned claw bathtub. She climbed in and then added a plugged in lamp with a frayed cord. (Yes, she had seen that in some 1950s camp movie.) She was electrocuted

My parents generation attributed it to environment. (My uncle "might" have been having an affair; they had recently moved and she missed her old friends; etc.)

Its only when the famous (football players and/or wrestlers) fall victim that society pays attention. We've known for 60 years the dangers of head injuries. Please keep pushing for more attention.

Denny

Thanks)
