Click "About the Accident" at the top to learn a little bit about what I am up to now.
My family created this site for me while I was in a coma (hence WakeJake) after I fell down a flight of extremely steep concrete stairs (fluke accident) on October 27th, 2012 sustaining a severe traumatic brain injury, which required my head to be drilled into by the ER doctor to release the pressure inside my skull (which would have killed me) after being sedated into a drug-induced coma.
Take a look at "About the Accident" section at the top to see much more about my accident.
I run the site now, and A LOT of work is yet to be done. It is truly a miracle I recovered 100% and (potentially) more intelligent than before, based on my IQ score in my last neurospych evaluation.
I am in the process of transforming this site into a TBI / Mental & General Health blog from all the things I've learned from accident; as well as my own personal blog
I have ZERO experience in web design so it will take me some time to get everything up-to-date *Excuse any typos as well :)*
Feel free to contact me at Jake.Schonhoft@gmail.com to learn how I was able to bounce back so quickly; believe me, it was the most difficult thing I've ever had to endure, and I wish no one has to experience the suffering and hopelessness I went through.
It DID teach me that PERSISTENCE / WILLINGNESS TO TRY will take you farther in life than anything, even intelligence - I am grateful for everything my brain injury has taught me about life and for everyone who stayed by my side.
