Shai Mishali served in the Artillery Corps. Shai was wounded on his way to visit his soldiers when a truck hit his vehicle. Shai’s driver was killed and he was critically injured, suffering from a severe head injury and multiple internal injuries. Today, after a long and extensive rehabilitation process, Shai (also known as a medical miracle) suffers from short-term memory loss, attention deficit and weakness in his left side. Shai receives a lot of help and support from his family and friends.
Challenge: To cope with challenging situations in public
The head injury and loss of short term memory lead to many states of frustration for Shai when practicing day to day tasks. The frustration is occasionally expressed in behaviour which may seem exaggerated or inappropriate for someone who is unfamiliar with Shai’s situation. Shai is looking for a solution that would help him cope with these situations so Shai won’t feel embarrassed in public.
