Profile Information

I am a brain injury Survivor, Family/Caregiver or professional
Survivor

I have "survived" a TBI. I don't think surviving is any thing much to brag about - the aftermath is almost as bad as the alternative.

I survived (well kind of survived) a head-on car accident 10 years ago. Both of us doing about 65-70 MPH - it happened so fast that neither of us ever hit the breaks.

I get frustrated with he social isolation of having a head injury and the immense cost of having a head injury - I'm not talking about the medical aspects - I am talking about the ways that I have lost money. Late fees because I forget to pay bills on time, or the way the government has F----- me and cost me $100,000's of dollars first by causing me to loose my house, and then my canceling my OWCP by not honoring the contract they made with me, and they are the FED so you have no recourse - no attorney will even try.

One of the things that is extremely frustrating is that no one knows what living with a TBI is really like. A few months ago I started a blog. It is not to give advice or teach people anything. It is only to show, by example, what having a TBI is like. I have a pretty good following now, and I find it rewarding to know that some people are learning of the many small ways that life is changed by a head injury. They can see that all the little things add up to one BIG thing.

My blog is one of the most rewarding things I am doing right now. If anyone is interested the address is:

How do you fight Federal Workers Comp? There seems to be no recourse with the Feds.

After receivng my federal Workers Comp for about two years, they stopped it; saying I had failed to fullfill a certain requirement.

I have a letter dated about two years earlier, saying I have fullfilled that requirement. Both letters quote the same chapter and verse. They agreed that I had full filled it, then they decided to renig on that agreement.

There is no attorney who will take on the Feds, and there seems to be no way to appeal it. They just…
