Hi you guys. Welcome to my blog where I talk about the present. You know, it's a good thing I was a long distance runner because what I'm going through is like an ultra marathon. It's a good thing I am a photographer 'cause I look at the world through one eye. It's a good thing I partied a lot and lived in a world of alternate state of being 'cause that's the way I am now. It's a good thing I was a surfer, 'cause I'm used to being off balance. What I'm trying to say is, I really believe that my life before got me ready for what I'm going through right now. I said it before, but I think it's important that you look at how you lived. Maybe if you have a traumatic brain injury, your past has gotten you ready for the present. Who knows?

I told you before, but I started water therapy again and it's super important. I've been going in the deep end and it's kind of scary cause you're in water up to your neck with weights on your feet, but it's super cool cause you can really walk. Feels great. I highly recommend it. Just don't try it with someone that's gonna kid around. The other thing I did was I got a peerscription from a doctor to go to therapy and work on my transfers. I'm trying to transfer from my wheel chair to something like a bed or a couch on my own. It's really important. It might seem insignificant, but to have independence to do things on your own is really important.

Independence! Ah ha! AT this point it's been about six years. I've always had someone around 24/7. In other words, I've never been alone for six years. It's enough to make you want to rip your skin off. But, it's better than taking a dirt nap. Right? So if you see a guy running up the road naked, holding a margarita, it's me.

I miss you all. Have a good week. Love, B. Nice
