Do you know someone who has had to deal with cognitive differences?
Do you understand the subtleties of a brain injury?
Living with the effects of a brain injury "ding" from a car crash can be life-altering. The rehabilitation, the daily struggles, the frustrations for both the patient and their families are immeasurable and have a ripple effect across the board.
Some Ding Happened is the retrospective journey of the author as she gradually learned to build strategies to better cope with affects of a brain injury as a result of a motor vehicle accident. On one fateful day, the author’s life changed drastically. From part-time teacher and artist to full-time recovery work, the author has spent the better part of ten years making herself stronger—mentally, physically, emotionally. Without knowing the how long and how far recovery could be, she worked with many experts to discover and cope with all the differences. She learned and continues to learn patience, acceptance, and taking life at a slower pace.
Every brain injury is different but there are commonalities. Some Ding Happened is the story of survival, of insight, of understanding, of encouragement, of support.
Does the uncertainty and chaos of life keep you up at night?
Is irrational worry your constant companion?
Could you use some calm?
If the answer is yes, you are not alone. According to one research program, anxiety-related issues are the number one mental health problem among women and are second only to alcohol and drug abuse among men. Stress-related ailments cost the nation $300 billion every year in medical bills and lost productivity. And use of sedative drugs like Xanax and Valium have skyrocketed in the last 15 years. Even students are feeling it. One psychologist reports that the average high school kid today has the same level of anxiety as the average psychiatric patient in the early 1950s. Chances are, you or someone you know seriously struggles with anxiety.

In the characteristic tone of his previous books like You’ll Get Through This and Fearless, Max guides readers through this Scripture passage and explains the key concepts of celebration, asking for help, leaving our concerns, and meditating.
