Bad Brain Days

Today is a Bad Brain Day. I have never been able to describe this to a Dr. Family, or Friends. It's rather difficult to explain but I figured since we all speak the same language, maybe I would get…Continue

Work or Run?

So the Vancouver Marathon is a day away. As a result of a mistake in my scheduling at work, it appears I am working that day. I have thought long and hard about taking the day off, however that is not going to work. If I take the day off, that means that one of the other three By-law enforcement officers have to take my shift. We all work full time shifts so this means they will be working an extra shift. I am also still in my first month of the job and I will be taken another week or so off in…See More

Quick Update

WOW was life ever easier when I all I had to was run and talk. Now I have to work!! I like my job. It's something that comes easy to me, I am outdoors, I get to deal with people and there is just enough excitement in it to make interesting without to demanding. My co workers are good and the location is good. The only issue is the pay is not great. I will keep my eyes open for something a little more financialy secure but for now I am not just trying to budget the new work hours, between…See More

My Float Tank Expierence

 I had my first experience in a float tank (Isolation tank) yesterday. I have been on a bit of a search as of late to find new ways to “work out” my brain. I mean if I can run across the Country, if I can complete an Ironman, if I can bush my physical limits. What will happen if I push my cognitive limits?I have worked out my brain with programs, from simple things like Sudoku, Rubik’s cubes, Luminosity and lots of other so called “memory enhancers”. Do they work? I don’t know I still have…See More

Job Update

Just an update of the job hunt progress. I recently have had two offers for jobs. I want to respect the privacy of each company but I can say this. It's been a hard journey, I have faced many, many rejections. I have fought hard, and when the questions of "what is with this gap in employment" comes up you can see the eyes glace over when I stay I suffered a brain injury. My last interview I did no...t bring it up. I stated that I volunteered and I ran across the country because it was a…See More

A Run To Remember Blogs

As many of you know I am on the road running a marathon a day across Canada. This is very time consuming and I am finding it hard to remember to post to all of my blogs so I have this widget which will show you the latest blog posts, news, pictures, videos and donors from the road. ~David...making a difference for those living with TBI - one km at a time!
