  • Poker ♦️♠️♣️♥️
    I've had a pretty good month! 4th followed by 1st, then 7th, then 1st again!! I just love the fact I've had a Traumatic Brain Injury 4 years ago, and a Hypoxic Brain Injury 3 months ago, but still have more brain capacity than many who play! I play Texas Hold'em poker for 2 reasons, the first is I just love the game, have always loved it, the

  • Finally back. D.A.I. T.B.I.,broken back, lacerated spleen, broken ribs 2 month coma to full recovery.
            After my wreck in 2011 and all my rehab things still seemed hopeless but I never gave up.  I was fortunate enough to have recovered so I kept pursuing the life I had before.  I got hired back to the same position I had in July of 2013.  I acquired my c.d.l. class a during the lay off that year and now run my own crew uncovering utilities with a Verme
  • Living with TBI
    Hi, My name is Janne and I have been living with a brain injury for 11 years. Since 2003, life has not been easy for me, especially when some family and friends don't want to get  to know what I go through every day of my life. That is truly sad. I know if they suffered a brain injury they would ask a lot of questions. I would be happy to support them.

  • Guilt by Association
     Fluorescent lights give me migraines and eventually make me ill. I don’t really pay attention to it because fluorescent lights are everywhere. My home, my studio and the local gym are pretty much the only buildings that accommodate me. I noticed today that I don’t like grocery stores, schools, public buildings and churches but I hadn’t made the connection t
  • Remembrance
    Tonight at the TBI support group we celebrated the Life of one of the members who has been "promoted" to a new life. Gary was a delightful person.  There were many good stories shared by those who attended including his son and daughter.  I am really glad I was there.
  • My Exploding Head
    There have been more than a few instances over the last thirty eight years when I wanted to scream, "Stop talking to me! I feel like my head is going to explode!" Of course, my head is still in one piece, but I've lost count of those times when I felt like I had a hand grenade built into my head and the pin was just about to be pulled. I swear
  • Mind Over Gray Matter
    Something that I've struggled with from time to time since my coma is the question of what is reality versus what is perception. What I mean is: I haven't always felt as though I could trust my senses to tell me what was actually happening. Sometimes there was a hint of doubt when I was trying to follow instructions, or I had to look two or three t
