Hi Barb, Thank you for adding me as a friend and fellow survivor! I love your photos you have put here. Your attitude is wonderful & I agree. I didn't always, but I have said... this year is going to be a good one! I've found this website among others and am making positive steps toward healing and growth. Learning to love the new me :- ) Making new friends is the best. Hope to chat or write soon. Take care.

Hi, Barb! I just wanted to reach out to say that I'm looking forward to meeting you this summer at the Abderseen Support Group!  Debbie and I became friends through a different group we were in, and I just met Shawn at the TBI confernece.  I still can only work part-time in my school district position, but since one of my work days is Thursday (when your group meets), I have to wait until schools out to come join you. If you would like to get to know each other a bit more before then, I would welcome that!  BTW, I was very interested in something you posted about super brain yoga - I looked it up on You-tube and have trying it with my family and folks at work - TBi or not, everyone wants to enhance their brain function!  

Take care! ~ Kathie
