Dark Times Ahead

Folks, we have got to be proactive. The new administration heralds sharp policy changes, changes that will affect TBI survivors and their families.

I am not getting up on a soapbox and telling you how to vote, how to think. I simply implore you to weight the evidence and see if any proposed…

Deception

As the National Organization of Disability appointtee for Magnolia, Arkansas 1994-98, I served with pride while attending Southern Arkansas University.  However, I had been recruited to Southern Arkansas University in 1993 from the University of Arkansas in Monticello for my authoritative proof/educational program "Challenged Conquistadors, Inc.",, since I meet the requirements for the Wal Mart grant, etc., of surviving a coma.  The Wal Mart, Pilot Club, & Southern Arkansas University…

our stories

Hi, Isn't this a free service for people interested in traumatic injury?  I noticed my story wasn't posted, went to sign in (which is different from tbisn.org), and find there is a different login procedure and a yearly sum of 36.00 to post ones' personal experience of exasperation or such.  

The site is www.ourstory.org or com, and seems unworthy of a direct link from our TBI site, which has changed quite a bit over the years.  Including a TBI…

DIVINE INTERVENTION

  20 days into my 17th year a really bad choice, beings the cab was full I jumped into the bed of the pickup... Low & behold,  To avoid a head-on, as we were traveling over 100 mph, we swerved only to hit a big bolder. I was found 298' from the wreck, however a cortical tare around my brain-stem, which at that point there had never been any record of them healing, left me to be found DOA. CPR revived me although the following 9 & 1/2 weeks in Coma caused me to require resuscitation 5…

A personal story I did on things I am thankful for post ABI

I am grateful for the love, support and encouragement, from my Family and friends that I have made here at The Brain Injury Association. Not only can we all relate to Brain Injuries in different ways but we all encourage each other to do what we can and focus on all of our accomplishments. Many of us have at times felt like we lost who we used to be, many have lost, months or years of memory (personally most of my pre Encephalitis memories are gone) or lost friends, jobs, independence, or feel… Continue

Sometimes wish I was deaf

My TBI was the result of a work accident in 2003. If something was made better than noise cancelling headphones, life would be so much less stressful for me. Noises and voices mixed together confuse me terribly stress me out and give me terrible migraines. I cannot separate them so I wear earplugs all day and chainsaw earmuffs if I really have to concentrate. I cannot multitask. One thing at a time. Does anybody know of new technologies to block out sound?

God bless

My New & Different Approach

I have been working in Photography since 2008 (even though I almost died in 1993 and spent years learning to cope from TBI).

I am starting at Arts Institute: I believe so much faith has been given to me: also I know the big time difference 'tween "jpl" and "raw"; however, color & lighting is not in my grasp as of yet.

If there are any questions on Photography, please write me @ lisak1915@gmail.com where I will be glad to try to…
