In this chapter, the author describes his social scientific exploration of ABI survivors' lives and ABI rehabilitation, and suggests that time is an important concept in the lives of ABI survivors. He draws an attention to the extent to which the experiences of the participants demonstrate that the future has been considered in their rehabilitation. After exploring these experiences he presents a discussion of some of the ways contemporary social theory, and in particular a rhizomatic and nomadic approach, can enhance understanding of future imaginings in identity (re)construction following ABI. He begins with highlighting how participants thought healthcare professionals conceived time in ABI rehabilitation. It is important that in the experiences of his participants the acquisition of new skills is not something that was addressed or 'imagined' in ABI rehabilitation. Following this, he concludes by drawing upon the empirical evidence from my interviews to challenge the perception of ABI as a 'tragedy'.
