There, I said it. I'm sure I always have. Now, as I recover, I just TOTALLY beat myself up about them. Some of you may not have any idea how hard it is/was for me just to write that down.
It is as if I've just made an admition that I'm "broken". Be that as it may, I'm going to be admit to being a little cracked rather than as broken. Maybe chipped is a better analogy.
I've been working so hard the last 6 months correcting what I can. Accepting that there are…Continue
Thank you for welcoming me to this network. This being my first blog post, I would like to take a minute to introduce myself. I sustained a severe TBI at the age of 12. Like all of you, I struggled with life for many years, weighed down by the notion that I had to settle with what was given me by fate. Then, at a particularly turbulent time in my life, I discovered martial arts and found the flame of passion in my life reignited. For the first time…Continue
Here's something I wrote when I had an 'normal' approach to life - It was nothing special other than being a story I was able to tell in 'Lyrical' form - I met and had a really cool relationship with a very 'simple' young woman. The words, for me anyway, told a story I felt like expressing -- It wasnt GREAT and I dont think it was BAD - but, just like my relaionship with Feena, was simple and easy going - Expensive Dinners, Jewelry, gifts were never asked for and not…Continue
On September 16, 2007 my life evolved 180 degrees, literally.
I was driving down a moderately busy road on a sunny Sunday afternoon.
My last memory prior to "my meeting" was of looking up at a street sign and realizing that I would need to turn around.
Tire marks left by my car indicated that it went from a curb lane to the inside lane and arced back to the curb lane.
The car then went over a curb onto the parkway, over a sidewalk and slid onto the…Continue

I've been quiet lately doing some internal thinking and soul searching. My emotions have been all over the place but I think I've come to peace.
I am accepting myself for who I am rather than who I was. It is hard, but it is reality.
By no means does this mean I am giving up. Rather, I'm just accepting myself for who I am at this particular point in time.
I do not know if I will ever be able to return to the type of work I once did. Multi-tasking…Continue

I have had an amazing life, and apply almost no focus on my past.
Nevertheless it kind of freaked me out the feelings, and thoughts…
