Kelly Bouldin Darmofal is from Winston-Salem, North Carolina and is the author of Lost In My Mind: Recovering From TBI (memoir) by Modern History Press (2014) and 101 Tips for Recovering from Traumatic Brain Injury: Practical Advice for TBI Survivors, Caregivers and Teachers (2015), Loving Healing Press. Kelly suffered a severe closed head injury in a car accident in 1992, and has gone on to receive a Masters Degree in Special Education from Salem College (2006). Kelly now teaches and advocates for children with special needs. Kelly's husband, Brad Darmofal, works for Wake Forest University and her son Alex is seven years old. In her free time, Kelly enjoys reading, running and spending time with her friends and sister Tyler, and her amazing nieces Kate and Lauren. Kelly also owns and adores two rescue mutts, Frenchie and Buddie.


Lost in My Mind is a stunning memoir describing Kelly Bouldin Darmofal's journey from adolescent girl to special education teacher, wife and mother
-- despite severe Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). Spanning three decades, Kelly's journey is unique in its focus on TBI education in America (or lack thereof). Kelly
also abridges her mother's journals to describe forgotten experiences. She continues the narrative in her own humorous, poetic voice,
describing a victim's relentless search for success, love, and acceptance -- while combating bureaucratic red tape, aphasia, bilateral
hand impairment, and loss of memory.

Readers will:
Learn why TBI is a "silent illness"? for students as well as soldiers and athletes.
Discover coping strategies which enable TBI survivors to hope and achieve.
Experience what it's like to be a caregiver for someone with TBI.
Realize that the majority of teachers are sadly unprepared to teach victims of TBI.
Find out how relearning ordinary tasks, like walking, writing, and driving require intense determination.

"This peek into the real-life trials and triumphs of a young woman who survives a horrific car crash and struggles to regain academic excellence and
meaningful social relationships is a worthwhile read for anyone who needs information, inspiration or escape from the isolation so common after traumatic
brain injury."

-- Susan H. Connors, President/CEO, Brain Injury Association of America

"Kelly Bouldin Darmofal's account is unique, yet widely applicable: she teaches any who have suffered TBI-and all who love, care for, and teach
them--insights that are not only novel but revolutionary. The book is not simply worth reading; it is necessary reading for patients, poets, professors, preachers, and teachers."

-- Dr. Frank Balch Wood, Professor Emeritus of Neurology-Neuropsychology, Wake Forest School of Medicine
