I have been MIA for some time but hopefully not forgotten. I have been going through a transition of my own. Struggling through depression and high anxiety for multiple personal reasons. Also having to go through deaths of two important people in our lives within four months of each other. My father-in-law and my brother-in-law. [...]

WHAT WOULD YOU DO?      Seven years ago on July 8 2009, our lives came to a complete halt. Almost non-existing. A day that I try so hard to remove from my mind. But unfortunately, it continues to haunt my every breath. Whether it's a siren of an ambulance, a helicopter flying past, the [...]

March is brain injury awareness month. So I thought it would appropriate to write a blog to bring more awareness to this silent epidemic. Many times, I go blank on what I need to say or do to bring more awareness. Then I heard a catchy tune on the T.V. "If I Only Had A [...]

        I apologize for not posting for awhile. So much has happened and of course time has kept me from writing. When I write, I want to share my personal thoughts through this TBI journey to those who can benefit and to those who are learning. Each step that I/we have experienced, has brought [...]

What can I say about this time of year. Six years and counting. Am I pissed, depressed, emotional and physically drained? Hell yes!!!! So many times trying to take off the boxing gloves that I think were on my hands since the day I was born. I'm so ready to hang them up in the [...]

     Welcome to the holiday season. It just seems that the summer had just passed and in a blink of an eye the holidays are upon us again. As people are hustling and bustling with preparations of Christmas, so many are forgetting what the true meaning of Christmas is. I hear so many conversations [...]

Finally we have the joys of summer and I have to admit that this is my favorite time of year for many reasons. Especially my quiet times at night sitting out on our patio. Enjoying peaceful, alone times. But it's a time when I do most of my thinking and worrying. (My family has learned [...]

Such exciting news to be shared. I would like to share our wonderful experience at the Carrick Brain Center in Georgia. We have been through many facilities and therapies in the past (almost) 5 years with Mike; but have never experienced a facility that was filled with so much hope. Dr Carrick, his staff, and [...]

Making baskets, collecting prizes and donations, advertising, and making sure that it will be as successful as it has been in the past years. I [...]
