See helmetsforkids.org for my mission and autobiography, "Finding Purpose In Being a Brain Injury Survivor". I'm always looking for speaking opportunities and events to give free bicycle helmets away at. Mike Heikes
How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on:(firstname.lastname@example.org) for the full details.
If anyone reads either, or preferably both, of my books, please, please, PLEASE write a review on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, iTunes, Google Play, or wherever you got the book, or books. Glowing reviews are preferred, but any review is better than nothing...I think. Be totally honest, but remember I do have an injured brain and I am not a writer.
Geo, just sent you a friend request. I was reading some of your comments. Do you think it is possible for anyone that has NOT sustained a severe TBI to comment on it? Being that I will never have a child of my own, would I be able to ever tell a woman what it feels like to give birth...I'm thinking the answer would be NO. How can anyone other than another individual that has sustained a TBI talk about it? I was just curious about your thoughts on that.
I was also in a bike accident , was hit head on in 1990 coming down a steep hill in NY doing about 40 too ! Life is different while I still work full time ,I still suffer from depression and was lately diagnosed with impulsive control disorder. I just can not stop my inappropriate obscenities while my neighbor a "bully" tries to provoke me and I get arrested. But since I've been under new medicine I can control my anger and I win!!!!
Thank you so much for telling me about your books. I am looking forward to reading them. I like the way you said that the books are about dealing with TBI everyday and not being a medical book. Your books are exactly what I need to read. I feel as if no one around me understands what it feels like to be a TBI survivor. It can be very frustrating. I will be reading your books, and again~I thank you. Take care, Chris
I agree that surviving a brain injury can be hell. Dealing with the repecussions is a lifelong process. It is not that I can't do things, but it takes me longer to learn. People will say I have recovered well, but they did not know the "me" before. And yes sometimes I feel as I am stuck in purgatory -- to many almosts and not quite. Take care, Shonti
