Thank you for reaching out to me. Please let me know if I can be of service to you. Have a pleasant and rewarding remainder of your day. God bless both you and your family Catherine.
I treat tbi as a phase of life. It may have slowed me down in some aspects; but has allowed me to stop and smell the roses also. My biggest downfall with tbi is that I was already bi-polar and this has greatly strained my control over anger and moods; but I still do not let it hold me back. I still love life and nature; but had to learn to do certain things alone. Thank you for the friend request and keep on keeping on. :~)
Hey Catharine - I'm trying to see where my limits are now in outdoors sports activities and anxious to connect with other TBI athletes. I used to adventure race before the accident and am scheduled to do a sprint race (short race) after Thanksgiving, but am having some difficulty with shutting down after doing any activity for about 2 hrs. Just trying to see what others are doing with strategies, etc. Thanks a bunch!
