Hi you guys. Welcome to my blog where I talk about the present.
Every second of every minute of every hour of every day of every week of every month of every year - I do therapy. I never stop. From sunrise to sunset. You see, when you have a traumatic brain injury, everything you do is an effort. And it's also one step, or in my case, one roll, to getting better. Just today I started up again with water therapy. Man, it wiped me out, but I'll tell you, it's great for you. I talked about it before, but it's amazing. It also doesn't hurt as bad when you fall over. Just get ready to be water boarded - ha ha ha. The other thing that Ive been doing a lot of is thinking about recipes with my health care assistant. I used to cook a lot. Now I do it with my health care assistant. It's great for the memory. I think about recipes and my health care assistant prepares it for me. It's great for the memory. Just don't hand me a knife.
So now I'm gonna do a shameless plug for a client I used to work for. I used to work for a company called Pendelton. They have great blankets and I used to collect them. Every day, my health care assistant makes up my bed and he puts on a new blanket. It's pretty cool because my world is really an arm length in front of me. I can only see about three feet in front of me. I can see other things further away from me, but they're not as sharp. The blankets are cool because I love the Native American prints the best. My friend here in front of me also makes great blankets and she gave me one. Pretty cool. Here's a link to Pendelton.
One other thing I like to mention is my local town just started work on their sidewalks. You see, there wasn't a broken curb before. It was difficult for me to use the sidewalks. They're fixing all that now. Pretty cool. I can now walk with my daughter down Main Street.
That's about it for now. You know, it's c owing up to 7 years since my injury. Mind you, it all started August 18th, 2009. It's been a long journey, and I'm a little tired of this. There have been some funny moments though. Anyway, keep your head up, and keep moving forward. Oh, check out my other blog where I talk about my sordid past. Love, B. Nice
