"Thanks James! What a blessing it was to read your post because this past week I had a few "lows" as I'm sure you know about these days. I found myself questioning again why God let me live through my accident as I sit on my porch in…"
"Keep your head up. It does get better over time, but you have to be patient and you have to work at strengthening your mind, while allowing (and I stress this) it to recover. I am five years removed from a moderate TBI and spinal cord…"
