Hi you guys. Welcome to the blog where I talk about the present. I basically tell you what's going on and update people on how I am. It's also for people who have a traumatic brain injury. Some of the information might be helpful to them.
Every day I go to therapy. That is, every day unless it snows a lot. Actually, it's not because of the snow. It's because of my mom's driving. Just kidding mom. She's actually pretty good. So I go to therapy almost every day. When you go to therapy there's a front desk. Now I'm convinced the ladies at the front desk think I'm absolutely looney tunes. Now imagine this: a guy in a wheelchair who rolls up every day and says he wants to leave a message for a therapist. He always starts out by saying, "My therapist is so ugly… Just the other day, I said, "Guys, did you hear about my therapist? Apparently, he took his family to Ripley's Believe it or Not Museum. and came out with an application." I say stuff like that, and say stuff like, "My therapist is so ugly that… he turns milk into cottage cheese when he walks by milk." You know, stuff like that. Hey, a man has to get entertainment from somewhere. Right?
It's been a funny week. When you have a traumatic brain injury you're going to go through a whole bunch of emotions. It's like that now. But, you get through it. You know, you always have to push yourself. Little things like trying to feed yourself, or sit up, make a huge difference. It's easy to just sit back and let people do stuff for you, but you gotta really push it. If you don't, you're gonna become dependent on people. The more you do now, the less dependent you'll be on people later.
I've been doing water therapy a lot lately. It's really good. I highly recommend it. I think I've been there too long though. They do stuff like throw beach balls at me. I think I've become a source of entertainment. I mean, just the other day, they gave me a giant blow up dolphin to hold, and started laughing. What's with that?
I'm gonna leave it there. Hey! Superbowl weekend. Get ready. Hope you guys have fun.
Talk to you next week. Love, B. Nice
