Traumatic Brain Injury Survivor, Ivan Loesch, Shares Ordeal in Memoir

The book provides readers an extremely interesting look into the life and struggles of a traumatic brain injury (TBI) survivor.

Langhorne, PA, USA – WEBWIRE

More than just a memoir of a traumatic brain injury survivor, the book is a testimony of a man who, with grim determination, battled strong.

On September 1988, Ivan Loesch, then 10, was hit by a motorist who was speeding on his way to work. He was sent as high as the telephone wires. It was a miracle that he survived: he woke up after three months in coma.
Loesch lives to tell his tale in his memoir aptly titled “Brain Injury” (AuthorHouse, 2015). The TBI survivor had worked on his book for years, adding more pages and striving to paint as accurate of a picture as possible of his injury.
The author is frank about his ordeal: “My injury was very profound it changed my whole outlook on life.”
Like many others who have survived debilitating conditions, he felt he had been cheated out of a life. “I still feel largely cheated out of some of the perks of this existence.” 
At high school, he was grouped with people who performed poorly. He was virtually ostracized by the other kids in his class, which pretty much ruined his college aspirations. At a rehab that attracted delinquent clients, he fought with most of the boys and he was later taken out by his father and a friend.
Yet, despite the magnitude and impact of his accident, he largely retained his mental capacity. A psychologist even told his parents he had remarkable mental health. Despite his circumstances, he was determined to fight back or die trying.
“I was not up for leaving the pain of my young existence. I had too many good points to my life. I was going to fight this injury off,” said the author.
For Loesch, brain injury was both a curse and a blessing. “The knowledge I gained from experiencing such a physically destabilizing injury more profoundly affected my characteristics than anything I could have learned through other means.”
The author expresses solidarity with people who are recovering from serious injuries and hopes his story will help alleviate their suffering.
“This accident enabled me to appreciate more of the beauty in life… My unscathed approach to life makes me I feel a better person more wholly intact now I have sound intelligence to offer because what I have learned cannot be taught.”
Ivan Loesch’s “Brain Injury” will be displayed at the upcoming New York Rights Fair 2018 on May 30 through June 1, 2018, at the Metropolitan Pavilion in Manhattan, New York City.
