Invisible Wounds With Bella Paige of the Post Concussion Podcast
How do you know when something is wrong?
This can be a tricky question to answer and even more problematic when the wounds may be invisible. Our guest today, Bella Paige, shares her story of having concussions throughout her life, how that affected her, and how did it leave her feelings.
Through the time we have been doing CausePods, a common theme of “I just felt like the only one” has been the genesis for creating a podcast to fight that thought and remove the stigma related to a topic.
The feeling of community around a niche group of people can be powerful, and the Post Concussion Podcast is no exception.
