My name is Robert McCallum. I live in Virginia, and I am married to my beautiful wife of 13 years. We have an adorable and vivacious 5 year old daughter. I am a Christian and have a passion for helping as a layperson in my local church.
And I Have a Story to Tell…..
My life was dramatically changed one night in August of 1998 by a dump truck. I have had to live my life with a frontal lobe traumatic brain injury. I was told I would never drive again, go to college, let alone get married and have a family. I have defied all odds! I drive and I went to college and got my BA in theology. It has by no means been easy, but with God’s help and the support of my family, I have not only survived but thrived.
Through prayer, discussion, and advice of family I have chosen to do this blog/project to bring awareness to things that are hard to talk about, especially in the church community. Brain injury, depression, anxiety, bi-polar, and other related issues are avoided. These issues need a voice and understanding brought to the forefront to help people recognize the struggles that others go through on a daily basis.
