My TBI

Hey Everyone!

I survived a TBI caused by a stroke in Aug., 2009. A prescription medication that I had been taking caused my stroke. Please take note of all risks with any medication you may be taking. My doctor did not really talk about such serious side effects, after my stroke, she told me that my chances were 1 in 10 million to suffer a stroke.

Hi Becca-

I am new to this site.  I don't know how to put my picture on or upload a you tube video that my husband made of the Disney marathon i did....It's little things like this that are frustrating, but maybe someone on this site could help me.  I wrote a long comment to you and it didn't get posted.  I'm not sure what happened.  Sorry.  Kerry Mischka

Hello ...Hope your doing okay...I just had a question for you.  O have noticed peoples reactions and attitudes towards me...I went to a Humane Society here in Portland, Or where I was trying to volunteer in handle the animals in the pound.  I went to one entrance and went to a desk-the girl told me I had to go to another desk at an office located next door-I went there and the girl at the desk, after I told her what I needed, got rather rude with me in how she acted to me...she got somewhat mad....irate....and I got a little made and made a comment like, "well, it's gonna be nice volunteering at this happy place" or something like that.....and walked out.......I was tired from riding my bike there...and the traffic, for about a mile going there is really bad...semi-trucks, fast traffic.....crappy streets-holes, cracks, rocks, etc....so I was worn out...... Anyway, I was thinking last night that sometimes I talk like I'm drunk or something...and there is a possibility she may have thought that.....I don't know......But this happened before with another girl about 20 years old...and I asked her a question about a bus I was taking....she got pretty ignorant-how she talked to me....

 

    I'm just worried and wondering if my slurred speech-and/or miscommunication may be doing this....or if it may just be the person I am talking to is having a bad day or something......I was thinking I am going to make a card to keep with me telling  who I am talking to that I have TBI, and have speech/communication problems....and to please have patience with me...something...What do you think?  I'm gonna ask other members for their ideas also....Thanks...Phil :D     I mean, it did bum me out for awhile...but I pray for the ability to think things thru and patience....But have any ideas?  How's the weather in Texas?  It has been raining "so long" here in Portland, Oregon-The sun just came out this morning and it looks "Marvelous".  Phil :D

So, what are you gonna do financially?  Have you tried to apply for SSI? or anything?  Hope you Find something!  Good Luck to you.  Phil

It sounds like the story of "Big Business and Lawyers" against the "little guy".  Doctors are protected by Attorneys - some of the best probably.  I'm not saying Doctor's are bad or anything- but, in your case...that Doctor who prescribed your Med's to you, made the wrong choice...and this is what happened.  Doctors are heavily protected by Insurance and Lawyers in the event of this type of neglect.  Most "Americans" do not even "think about" Statue of LImitations....especially after surviving TBI...I mean, your brain is going through a tremendous injury and they expect you to think about something as complex as as laws concerning Statue of Limitations.  Well, that was nice that you presented this to "all TBI Suvivors"....Thank You.....

Hello Becca....Is there anything else I can do for you reference your legal process?  How did you learn how to process that patition?  That's a slow-legal process, and to me, legall-strangely written....anyway, did I fill out the right info?
