Today was the day I had been looking forward to for weeks. I had been training and I thought I was ready but I didn’t count on one thing, a very small detail. We were starting at 6 so I had to get up between 5 and 5:15 am. I was still half asleep as … Continue reading Finished the virtual 5CAP!
Today was a great day, a Saturday that did not involve going to the supermarket. Instead, we went to the beach!

I can’t help but be impressed by the amazing things TBI survivors do. The most recent one I found out about is ABC journalist Bob Woodruff. Bob suffered a serious injury in Iraq in 2006.

I thought that by July this should all be under control, I mean, we have been living with this huge mess for over four months now. We should have our act together by now, but no, it’s just getting worse. People just want to go “back to normal“ but WE CAN’T. That is not normal … Continue reading This is not over yet

These days, if you get sick or have any symptoms of anything, the only thing anyone thinks about is Coronavirus. That makes complete sense to me because, what if you do have it?

My family seems to worry every time I say something that starts with the phrase “so, I’ve been thinking...” This phrase is sometimes followed by something random I’ve been wondering about that really shouldn’t worry anybody; it’s just a question. Then there are the times that I’ve come up with a change I want to … Continue reading I’ve been thinking…
