Hello I was a  Chaplain a hospital who worked with TBI patients. Now I'm a Chaplain with a hospice in the Chicago area. I'm interested in hearing stories about how your spirituality has helped you  with your TBI. Anyone who has any form of spirituality is welcome. Thanks. PhilSee More

God Lead the Way it Seems



There had been three important people very close to me,

That had died several years ahead of me that I got to see.



Some call it a near death experience, it occasionally happens when we die,

I got a hug from all three, yet they told me I must come back and said good-bye.



I remember telling them how tired I was, they said that they already knew,

They told me there were very important things God still needed me to do.



I felt disappointment as I had to…

Friends all say that I look the same,

They say that must mean I am fine.

I smile and nod and play the game,

It is easier to just pretend.



But the truth is I must try very hard,

Or they will know I am not the same.

They are fearful of that knowledge,

So I continue to play the game.



Their ignorance makes me…

Cognitive Overload

There is entirely too much noise,

there is no way I can possibly last.

I am trying very hard to understand,

but the world is moving way too fast.

Soon there will be nothing but a blank screen,

so forgive me if I cannot say the right word.

No matter how many times this happens,

I know it is real, even if others think it is absurd.

It is like not having cable on your television,

there are only a couple of channels that I can use.
