This is the cover of the book my story will be a part of. It was originally in the July 2015 issue of TBI Hope & Inspiration magazine.
About the Book
Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) affects millions of people around the world every year. Brain injury, however, is a family affair. Mothers, fathers, sons and daughters – all are touched in some way when brain injury becomes part of life.
“To Be Inspired – Stories of Courage and Hope after Brain Injury” is a collection of stories by souls who have found a way to live life after TBI. You’ll read story after story of people – people just like you and me – who have found the ability to build meaningful lives.
The book will be available on Amazon.com. Watch for an early August release date.
1) I started a new load of laundry when there were clothes still in the washing machine.
2) I knocked over & spilled a water bottle in the fridge. (I have a really clean shelf now however it started with some ‘not so nice’ language.)
3) I ended up wearing the plastic wrap I intended to use to cover a bowl. I may have gotten away with that look in high school, however a 58 year old woman………….not so much!
4) I know there’s a fourth thing but I’ve already forgotten it!! I’m thinking that’s a good thing however I’ll probably discover it tonight…………..or in our dinner!!
I don’t know why after 16 years & knowing what I require in terms of rest that I thought I could go about my morning without my morning nap. I promptly laid down only AFTER I was walking from the kitchen into the front room, missed the doorway and walked into the wall instead. I will admit though that I should have been tipped off I needed rest when I rammed my foot – TWICE – into the kitchen chair. Yup, same chair & foot too!!!
Nap was nice however I’m still a bit leery of knives today!!
I’ve recently started eating ketchup with my fries when I bake them for dinner. I’m thinking I may need a bit more practice though because tonight I dipped them in my tomato soup instead. And, since I did it more then once a habit was then ‘born’ so I had to stop, visualize where the ketchup was on my plate, then dip my fry in the correct substance. God bless Brain Injury!!!!
