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 second is that it's the biggest brain test!See More
I was debating on whether to comment on your blog however I think I will. I know when you talk about the dark side, I can relate. I was going to attempt suicide and made letters to my son's etc. I only turned my life around when God…"

IGODIVA believe I've spoken about god before, but I just had a discussion and thought I'd write my beliefs here.I have seen the other side, and I'm sure there is nothing but darkness, no angels, no devils, just nothing.Saying that, I believe most religions are fundamentally good.I believe it is what happens here on earth that counts. If you need to believe that you're going to another place after this, as long as that belief makes you want to do good things to people, whether it is to proove…See More
