"Embracing the And" with Faith Broussard Cade

It Didn't Break Me

Nov 16 2022 • 1 hr

After being hit from behind by a tractor trailer, Faith Broussard Cade thought she came out of it unscathed. The ambulance looked her over and she was not bleeding. Although a little sore, she didn't imagine anything could be seriously wrong. But there was! In the passing days and weeks, her mobility became more restricted. She was having blurred vision. Her long and short term memory progressively got worse.

Symptoms of Concussion and Traumatic Brain Injury: that was what Faith Broussard Cade was experiencing. When she went to doctor after doctor explaining something was wrong, she was regularly ignored until a neurologist finally listened and diagnosed her. In this episode, Faith will discuss how she was able to take this life-altering event and create hope for not only herself but for others...one sticky note at a time.

I invite you to join our conversation as Faith and I discuss:

  • Vertigo
  • US healthcare system
  • Chronic Insomnia
  • What is a neurologist
  • Medical Leave
  • Layoffs
  • Punk'd
  • Vulnerability
  • TBI symptoms
  • Letting Go of the Façade
  • Self Care for Women
  • Writing notes
  • Over stimulation
