Welcome to my Book page!
Hello, I am Robin Bloom author of My Daze of Brain Injury and the sequel Wake Up! We're Going Home.
In 1996 while driving home from work little did I know how in the next moment my life would vanish on impact. I didn't know it the moment it happened and I didn't realize what happened for months afterward. Surviving traumatic brain injury (TBI) is not my story. Thriving, overcoming fear, recreating my life, reclaiming my power and spiritually awakening to a greater love, however, are the wonderful elements of my story. The intent of my story is to present a living role model for change. If we accept the premise that compassionate love and understanding conquer all imperfections, our lives will be much fuller and richer.
Ten-percent of the proceeds from My Daze of Brain Injury are donated to the Wounded Warrior Project to assist veterans who are recovering from TBI, PTSD and other serious injuries.

Robin's life changes within a split-second of a tragic accident. The ER finds no visible injuries or broken bones. Yet, confusion and memory loss begin to surface. Robin emerges from the trauma and finds the life she once knew no longer exists. In a role-reversal, this special-needs teacher finds herself a student of her own skills. How Robin discovers and accepts her limitations, and reconciles these life-changing losses, is a story of love, courage and inspiration.
"Robin's story show us that with time, help, love, and effort we can all accept trauma, overcome and lead fulfilling lives. Bravo!"

"Robin inspires as she shares her stories of brain and spinal injuries. Robin's horrors of the unknown and recovery are challenges that all survivor's face, especially those who encounter a brain injury. Her journey can be summed up by saying, 'Tragedy...opened doors to happiness I never suspected.' A must read for brain injury survivors and their families to better understand this long and tiresome recovery process."
Brenna Meixner, MOT, OTR/L, Occupational Therapist, Brain Injury Survivor, Author
"As a psychologist who has been practicing over twenty-five years, I still wonder why some people become defeated by their traumas and others seem to find resiliency and meaning in even the most unfortunate circumstances. My Daze of Brain Injury is meant for the individual's looking for meaning in life's tragedies. This book is well-written and leaves the reader wondering how on earth the author is going to cope with what seems like an unending list of traumas. The book is an inspiration for anyone with a traumatic brain injury (TBI). It is a great resource for family members who are trying to understand someone who is learning how to live with a TBI.
