3amigos Hi everyone. Welcome to my blog where I talk about the present. I'm presently exhausted. You see, I started water therapy once again. It's great cause you can actually walk in water, but man, it's tough. I don't know if you remember what I told you, but the therapists put weights on your ankles and throw you in the deep end of the pool (just kidding). They do put weights on your ankles and lower you into 4 feet of water. There's two instructors who hold you up as you walk across the pool. It's pretty cool. Feels great to walk once again. And when you fall, well, you just end up going under water. You don't hurt yourself. It's been about a year since I did water therapy. There was, I notice, a huge improvement with it. I don't shake as much. And I don't have to wear pasties. Just kidding about the pasties. I did think it was funny to get a pair and wear them in the pool, but my mom told me to stop acting like a 10 year old. So I behaved.

The other thing I did to get out of my routine was to go out to lunch with my friends. It's always good to break up your routine when you have a traumatic brain injury. Just something as simple as going out to lunch can become an olympic event. It's tough but worth it.

I told you before that I've become more aware of where I am and more aware of how I am. It's good and bad. I can't believe how bad off I am. It brings on a little depression, but you know, you suck it up and move forward. Think positive.

I told my mother I need another dog. She freaked out. I was just kidding.

Anyway, hope you have a good week. Love you and miss you all. Love, B. Nice

Oh yeah, here's the link to my other blog.
