I am so sorry to hear about the difficulties you have been encountering. I am always available to talk to. I do encourage you to stay focused on what you want to achieve in your life and pursue those things. I guess we can look at this as maybe a new lease on life for you in a sort of way. Please keep in touch and have a great weekend. In my prayers and blessings to you,
You are simply an amazing individual. What a blessing to read what you have written. Funny enough, we are all frustrated in one way or another with this hand we have been dealt in life. God will use it for His glory though, so we have all been blessed. God Bless Jim. Kerry Mischka
I was wondering how things are going for you at work and if there has been a positive change at all. I think the goodness of others is greatly taken advantage of given certain situations and yours was as well. My prayers go out to you and your family....
I am sorry to hear that this happened to you. It is highly unfair and just plain mean to have something like this exposed at your expense. I am sure your whole intent was to have friends like you that you can relate to and discuss openly about certain things going on with you. There is nothing wrong with that and you need to know that. Your personal life is your privacy and no one else's unless you invite them into it. Shame on them if they misuse your information for their benefit. I am here to talk to anytime you need it. Your friend and blessings...
Thank you for replying, Jim. I'm still trying to digest your story--and imagining you seeing yourself "out-of-body"--That gives me courage to tell my story and come out of the TBI closet! I still remember my 'old' personality so if you went through so much and you are fine one on one or in small groups, that gives me hope. Sometimes I get "stage fright" and start stammering around--it feels like the gears in my head need WD-40. Thanks so much again for sharing the details!
