One of the things that my "RE-memory" is REALLY bad at, is finding that 'half-full glass'.  Then remembering that I found it.  I have talked about it many times with others, and don't know if I have…Continue

As someone who lives in a rural area, an online source of support has been a BLESSING TO ME.

Hi, Barb! I just wanted to reach out to say that I'm looking forward to meeting you this summer at the Abderseen Support Group!  Debbie and I became friends through a different group we were in, and I just met Shawn at the TBI confernece.  I still can only work part-time in my school district position, but since one of my work days is Thursday (when your group meets), I have to wait until schools out to come join you. If you would like to get to know each other a bit more before then, I would welcome that!  BTW, I was very interested in something you posted about super brain yoga - I looked it up on You-tube and have trying it with my family and folks at work - TBi or not, everyone wants to enhance their brain function!  

Take care! ~ Kathie
