When disappointment brings you down...
8 Replies

So, what do you do when disappointment catches you, and through just whatever, or TBI Hyperfocus or what ever... you can't slip it away.  This week has been a series of slow disappointments.  One…Continue

"I love that!  Tie your troubles to a balloon and let it soar!  YAY!   Of course, my eco-friends would say don't really do it, as balloons are so bad for our world... so in my mind, I am sending it off! Thanks my friend!"

When disappointment brings you down...

So, what do you do when disappointment catches you, and through just whatever, or TBI Hyperfocus or what ever... you can't slip it away.  This week has been a series of slow disappointments.  One here, one there, and another over there--> and I am just DOWN.  So!  What do you do, when you feel like you are just slinking into the hole?  Nothing mind boggling has happened, just a series of small things that have gotten on top of one another.  Would love to have ideas, as obviously I am out of…See More

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
