Busy Months coming ahead for TBI Raiders...tracking my muscle spasms to start...

And this would help me to remember to exercise. I told two professors at school that I was going on my second week of having no muscle spasms.

The cool thing is even when I get mad, my left arm won't give me any feelings of muscle spasms… Continue

What can I expect here?

What can I expect here on this Survivor Network for my support group? What kinds of support can I get from here? Can I helps others as they will help me? This is a fantastic web site that brings together like-minded individuals that have a certain goal in mind; that goal is to get better. God's plan ( or whatever faith or religion base you believe in, even a higher power) is there, when one door closes, many other doors open around you and you have to see them to go though. I saw these doors… Continue

Ning is not friendly to TBI Survivors

Since September '09 i have been trying to get on my page here, seemed i was LOCKED out. Ning would not respond to me, and i could not respond to those contacting me . EXTREMELY FRUSTRATING ! Thsi occured at the same time i expressed my capacity for my own thinking to a "group leader". This group leader has used my photos and harrassed me in so many ways since then. there shoud be positive INTEGRITY in "group leaders". I should not become another VICTIM within this forum or any TBI "support "… Continue

My Top Ten List for Being a Survivor

I'm sure that all of us can create a top ten list, but here's mine.

10. Never give up
9. Don’t get hung up about the “old” you
8. Help your family and friends understand the “new” you
7. Find and talk with other survivors
6. Inform non-survivors what TBI recovery means
5. Read and play
4. Find a “new” hobby or interest
3. Write a journal
2. Become your best advocate
1. Believe in yourself

I still love to ride!

Even though I got my brain injury from riding a motorcycle; I still love to ride. I am alive because of excellent safety equipment, a good friend and a little help from modern technology. There was probably a little luck involved also...

So anyone who does still enjoy riding, always remember you don't need a law to tell you that the best helmet you can buy is still very cheap, an Arai like the one that saved my life back in 1996 might cost $350 to $750 today; but I'm quite certain my… Continue
