Honey, I fell in love with you a long time ago,
now your injury makes it hard to remember the love I used to know.
You do not mean to be hateful or curt,
but you are, and I don’t think you understand how bad it hurts.
I know you are suffering and in a lot of pain,
just tell me what to do to help you without making you feel lame.
I am your significant other and I am hurting badly for you,
please, my loved one, just tell me what I can do to…

My Dearest Soldier
My dearest soldier, I remember when you would have died for me,
Why then oh why, is suicide the only option you can now see?
I sit here alone and wish I knew how to call you up on the phone.
I wish I knew who or where you were so I could make sure you aren't alone.
I wish you would send me your email so I could just drop you a line,
The real truth is, I want some guarantee that you will eventually be just fine.

I have started a blog that I want to encourage veterans and civilians alike to participate in so we can make big changes together! We are stronger as one group of people. Eventually how or why your story happened will mean less and less. The future needs us working together to make society comfortable with the brain injury survivors of the future. noahsarkconsulting.blogspot.com/
Please come visit, I am looking so forward to meeting…Continue

When I Died
I have been to the place we call death twice in my lifetime,
The wonderful news is all I felt was welcome, comfort and love.
I heard my son yelling for me to come back his voice full of strife,
God heard him too, because he sent me back from heaven above.
I was never unconscious so I was literally able to hear every word,
Words like “she has coded, her pupils are fixed and dilated,” and intubation.
My son’s plea…Continue

Read this article my TBI Friends! A memory medication may be available one day! Of course, it is for Alzheimers, but this gets closer to the Issue of Bad Short-Term memory that "Dementia" is about....it's a "Step forward!"
“Super memory” pill–and possibly an Alzheimer’s cure–could be around the corner
Scientists have isolated a gene in mice that works to give them "super memories" and reverses the course of several degenerative mental illnesses like Alzheimer's.…

did I understand your note correctly about being embarrassed... I am sorry to read that as I have been in public service for the past 30 plus years... and wish you well on your journey...
as I was shot by a sniper in viet nam....and just recently stumbled across this sight just a few days or a week and have enjoyed reading many of the profiles..
i am Dave..
I'm not trying to be negative-I'm just looking at my life now with TBI, since Aug 2008, and trying to figure out "Who I am Now" and "what and how-to go forward in life, and "become" someone who can be depended on by others. I mean, is there anyone out there who also has TBI....and begun a new life that they truly love-even working in a job-or just doing something that they "love" to do-and now they truly "accept themselves", as they are- with TBI and its symptoms, like the…Continue
