thoughts on limits

Limits are self imposed.  Limits are also put there by the fear from others.  I wasn't really aware of much during the early days post the injury...after i was out of the 2 month rehab.  I don't really think much about it except when something sparks (emails from posts on this site).  The coma was pretty severe and the post neurosurgery 6 months later was no picnic either.  Mostly because i was alone and 16 and family pretty much entertained themselves with me.  This feeling i got from them…See More

For you that need

Needing is the single most unattractive feature of this TBI situation...since when we need support for things that others figure you should know or things that a child can do or things that are just too basic for someone to even understand why.  Today i filmed a moment that was an intersection of man and nature.  I walked to the end of the peer where birds where being fed...i suppose for passing some time or for some entertainment and well that seems to be how i view ALL the support i…

game

Resource discussion----please read

i wonder how things would be if we got just what we needed and if what we needed was not right someone would educate us as to the why.  i keep seeing tbi support groups popping up and i hate to see something like this turn into more wasted time and dollars like most things.  I'm working with the department of rehab in california not for money or for making support better for others but for finding me a job.  i have no idea how much longer i can go without since i was denied supplemental…
