With his ‘serious head injury,’ Dustin Lance Black knows ‘the road back will be long’

Months after taking a break from social media, “Under the Banner of Heaven” TV creator Dustin Lance Black revealed that he’s been facing a health issue.

“A month ago I sustained a serious head injury that put me out of commission. Showing little improvement, my doctors ordered me to shut off my brain in hopes of it healing,” he announced in an Instagram post Monday.

The Oscar-winning screenwriter, who took home the original screenplay award at the 2009 Academy Awards for “Milk,” shared photos of his vacation in Greece with husband Tom Daley. Black’s Instagram posts show the director strolling along the shores of Greek beaches and watching the sunset and resting poolside with Daley.
