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

Hi TRINA., I've read most of what you have written on here.... and would like to offer you a free one on one call with me to "help' you go threw or around or just jump over some of the difficulties that you are expressing on here. I know that there is much that can be done to stop focusing on what you have "lost"
Happy Spring, Trina!
This is Ian from Billings, MT just checking in to see if you consider your Self a Thriver by now...one making the most of what resources one has to co-create a meaningful and vibrant quality of life? The comparison between Thriving and merely Surviving came up during a support group break-out session I co-facilitated at the recent May 1st and May 2nd statewide conference of the Brain Injury Assn. of Montana , and the general consensus was that it was more a question of attitude than physical or cognitive ability. I shared my believe that anyone still breathing is a survivor or sorts, but a thriver is simply one who makes the most of whatever reesources (including functional abilities) they have to pursue an ongoing improvement in their lives and the lives of others. You made a comment to me awhile back that mentioned your desire to start thriving instead of merely surviving, Trina, and I am in full support of your actively introducing that very process into your daily life. May this year continue to bring you blessings and joy!
