A TIME FOR REFLECTIONJust finished up our most popular event we do, hoopfest yesterday, and today makes the official end of our fiscal year but we have been broke for a couple months, and many of the popular things don't really get much money.  But here we go to our 7th brain injury camp, which this year my radar stopsThis last year i tracked what we do and the cost verses funding sources but this time I am factoring in the personal cost on me.  The last 6 months of last fiscal year its been 7…See More

Michael Buckner replied to Becca Dixon's discussion Are you normal now?
"Becca, I would've asked him to define normality to me because what is normal for one person is totally strange to another, if you know what I mean.  In today's world, normality has a wide range of possibilities."

Profile Information

I am a brain injury Survivor, Family/Caregiver or professional
Survivor
What do you find most difficult living with a brain injury
I was in a severe automobile accident 14 years ago, sustained a traumatic brain injury, and because I'm involved in a survivors support group, they told me about this site.
are you on another social network such as facebook, so we can varify your a real person trying to apply
I would like to share my methods of how I overcame some of my difficulties and possibly learn new ones. I would also like to get to know others with my type of injury so that I might be able to socialize with them, letting them know they're not alone and for encouragement.
my or my families brain injury is concidered

Michael, Tell me some particulars about the Eyelights....I've done some research on the brain and how the lights affect dopamine and stuff....How long did you wear before you felt better?  what color are the lights?  Did you have balance issues...and not "Vertigo"...cause I've had alot of rehab in physical therapy for vertigo type of symptoms...bu that "is not"  my problem...I feel as though I'm floating when I walk immediately when I get up in the morning.  I've had blood pressure tests when I raise from a laying position and it checks okay....I've had this balance issue for a long time now..since approx Jan 2009 or something like that....Anyway-thanks for the info about the lights ...I'm gonna "try" this out also....
