Hi you guys. Welcome to another week of traumatic brain injury. I'm gonna dedicate this blog to my team. You know, it was my birthday the other day and my team got me to another birthday. When you're in intensive care, you really need a team to get you through it. It's a lot of hard work and you can't take any short cuts. You know, in life, there are no short cuts. I'm gonna be profound here for a moment. Like when I ran track & Field. Sure you can take short cuts. Skip a work out, or shorten your runs by taking a taxi. But in the long run, you'll pay for it. You'll get halfway through a race and get blown off by everyone else thinking, "Oh, I should have done those workouts." See what I'm saying? You can apply that to life as well. For example, when I was in the ICU, you know, you really had to work hard at just breathing. It can be a problem if you take a short cut. See what I'm saying? A good team will help you get through everything. I had a good team, and I dedicate his blog to them.

You know, I took a week off at the gym and after going to the gym for the first time in a week, I'm really shaky. I feel totally out of it. I guess, you know, by missing just a week, it really takes its toll on you. You gotta stay busy and active. Just an observation. You know, I do have what I call "moments." They're more and more often but shorter and shorter. I call my neurologist and they say, "What do you want to do?" again. I feel like I should change my name to guinea pig. Once again it comes down to either increasing the medication or meditate. I choose to meditate. That and get some strippers. Just kidding. I wanted to see if you were paying attention.

Not much else to really report. I've been having a hard time sleeping. I always wake up at like 4 am, freaking out. But I guess it's all part of the process. I can't get back to sleep so I think about drawings I'm gonna do. I'll include one here. Here's my link to the past, you know stuff I used to think about. Have a good week. Love, B. Nice

P.S. Remember, I couldn't even hold a paintbrush before. Now I can at least hold a paintbrush.
