I suggest you post this on the TBPI board as well, that is where you might get more info as that message board is for people in the same situation as you are in.

Tom, TBPI is Traumatic BPI, the one you get from an accident/trauma and there is OBPI which is Obstetric, birth injured.

Injury Description, Date, extent, surgical intervention etc:I am ROBPI, global injury, Horner's Syndrome. No surgery but PT started at 2 weeks old under the direction of New York Hospital. I wore a brace 24/7 for the first 11 months of my life. I've never let my injury be used as an excuse not to do something. I've approach all things, in life, as a challenge. I approach anything new wondering if I can do it. I tried so many things I might never have tried, if I were not obpi. Being OBPI has made me strong, creative, more determined and persistent. I believe that being obpi has given me a very strong sense of humor and compassion for others.
