Okay people, let's get out there and *crush* it today! I was gonna add, "because it's crush or be crushed!" but I realized that's not really true. If you end up *not* crushing it, just to have…Continue

Your book is fantastic.  Thank you for probably the first real piece of mind I have found finally knowing another having a tbi and accomplishing what you have...I appreciate you although I am so not to the point to be thankful for this tbi I am thankful for another shot at life knowing God is so not through with me yet!!  BJ

Hi John, I’m not sure if you remember me.  We emailed a few times.  My name is Kim I don't want to give last names on here but I just wanted you to know your videos have been great. I'm still having to deal with allot of stuff,, I hate being in a work comp situation.  It's been a nightmare.  I haven’t been tested by a neuropsychologist yet but have been told I have a brain injury.   I really don’t understand why they don’t just get things going so I can heal.  I feel like I’m in limbo on top of all the issues I’m dealing with.

 My doctor is going to prescribe the hyperbaric chamber.  Have you done this yet? I’ve been going to brain mapping therapy for the last 5 months. It helps me a little bit but not what I was hoping.  I just feel like I’m going nuts.  Has anyone dealt with a work comp on this kind of injury?  I wish I didn’t fall at work.. It would have been better for me to heal if it were somewhere else.  Anyone got any advice?

Great video John, it helps put things in perspective!!

John,

Thanks for the response!  Please keep me posted on your book.  How are you doing since the "You Look Great!" video?  Seen much improvement?

 

 I have sent the links to your youtube postings to my closest friends and have gotten wonderful responses.  You were able to put into words so much of what I have felt these last three years.   Is there someplace I can download the entire video as single element?  I'd really like to have it with me on my phone.

Thanks,

Rick Moseley
