Creative Me - With Cheryl & Craig at world wide web and streaming audio

October 5, 2015 from 7pm to 10pm
Be Part of a major movie release, let design festivals and public awareness around this movie, years in the making from famed movie expert Cheryl Green and her unique way of seeing thing in the world and society.  My hope is to get her up in spokane to help document all incredible things we do in spokane despite the resistance of professionals trying to brand brain injury into a industry, I think that's what I want to call the movie the resistance, but anyway the movie "Who am i to stop it!" is…See More

"So, this sign in Bush Park (Salem OR) made it to the Rachael Maddow show! Help, I'm being attacked by owl's! I searched the whole park to find it, here it is :-) I was not attacked by the way. Lovely park near the hospital. "

Profile Information

I am a brain injury Survivor, Family/Caregiver or professional
What do you find most difficult living with a brain injury
Just trying to keep up with making my own Dr. appointments, taking down all the information, loading it into a phone etc... so that I can make the appointment! Making sure I pay my bills on time, trying to communicate with family without them getting upset with me because they never have understood what happened 12 years ago, trying not to get "too lost!" when I am going out in the world~in a store, taking a walk, going to a new place like a Dr. appointment I have today~ remembering to talk to God about it so that He helps me through it, taking the time to do yoga and meditate so I can think more clearly, writing in my diary helps too, trying not to say anything too strange or forget what I started out saying to a new friend or someone I meet, feeling so upset with myself after getting off the phone either 5 minutes or hours later with someone and remembering something important I wished I had said...
are you on another social network such as facebook, so we can varify your a real person trying to apply
yes, facebook, twitter
what is most important that you learn about brain injury
How to join more support groups that may be available, watch more helpful videos, learn about more upcoming events that I can finally start going to! I love helping others with what I am learning, slowly but surely I am starting to heal and move forward.
my or my families brain injury is concidered

Thank you Donna. Not always easy is it? But if we live, and want a life worth living...We will learn to cope in a way we never knew before. Blessings ...

Good Day,
How is everything with you,I picked interest on you after going
through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you
immediately.I have something very vital to disclose to you,but I
found it difficult to express myself here,since it's a public
for the full details.
Have a nice day
Thanks God bless.

Hi, Donna!

When I noticed you were online, I read your profile page and relized you are a fellow Pacific NWer! I live in Olympia, WA. Over Spring break we were in OR looking at colleges with one of my sons - I think we may have been in your town when we visited Willamette College? I really related to many things you wrote in your profile - family and day to day stuff, but, also, things that you find have supported your recovery. I, too, have found meditation to help me greatly (especially with anxiety and focusing my attention), and I am trying to get back to a yoga practice - that was an important part of my life before my accident, which was 4 years ago Easter Sunday.  I notice you mentioned wanting to watch helpful videos - there are many good ones on this site! I hope that we get to talk more. Take care! ~ Kathie

Frustrated by my lack of of remembering to celebrate occasions like my son's graduation.

I used to remember too celebrate my son's birthday and his achievements, and now I don't think about it. He doesn't understand why "I don't care anymore." Events come and go before I remember them. I have an alarm on my phone, however, I get tired…See More
