This weekend I finished reading A Mind Unraveled and I loved it. The author, Kurt Eichenwald, is honest about everything that happens to him during the period of his life when he was undiagnosed or wrongly diagnosed. It opened my eyes to how this condition affects every one of its victims and it's different for … Continue reading “The Smile on My Forehead”
After finding this in a Brain Injury page on Facebook, I knew I had to share it. I want to share this for all my fellow survivors, those who are just beginning to live their new lives as survivors and for the veteran survivors. I want this to be a reminder that you are … Continue reading Unstoppable survivors
As of right now I will attempt to read this book It's not a big deal until you look at it like this: Yes, that is 382 pages of text, no pictures or drawings. It is the longest book I've tried to read since the accident six years ago and it looks a little intimidating … Continue reading That’s a long book
Today I want to take the chance to, once again, thank my mom for always being there for us (my brother and me), through the good and the bad and never, ever letting us down. We disagree sometimes, she gets nervous when I drive, but some people don't even want to get in the car … Continue reading Happy Mother’s Day
I think one of the many things that can help you heal from whatever situation you're going through is charing your experience and talking to other people. You never know how many others are out there going through the same thing and are ready to share their experience with you and help. I was reminded … Continue reading Get support and give support

Writing is one thing that was not taken from me after the accident five years ago. Writing is one of the things that helped me the most. It provided me with, not only a way to remember things, but a way to write down my thoughts and feelings. As I read, writing can be very … Continue reading Write it
I would like to share two positive thoughts I ran into today, just because I think we all need some of these, whether you had or didn't have a bad day or are facing a difficult moment or not. I need to hear stuff like this every once in a while, just to remind me … Continue reading Never give up
I don't regret the things I tried to do and failed. I only regret the things I didn't do and lost my chance of doing. I will never know what would have happened just because I was afraid. Don't be afraid to fail, it makes you human. Be brave, be unstoppable.
It is amazing how inspirational other Brain Injury Survivors are, we all have a story to tell, our own story. We can find it all around us, others just like me who are just working hard everyday to get their lives back. Today I found another inspirational story in an article on The Huffington Post. … Continue reading Hope Survives
In school we learned all about how man went to space, then went to the moon, we learned the years, the names of the astronauts, but we didn’t learn about the people behind all of that, just that it was people at NASA. But we didn’t hear about the group of African American women who … Continue reading Hidden Figures- A story we should have known

I am very sad to write my last goodbye to a man who I can say is my inspiration. Pedro was a great husband to a very loving wife, a very good father, a very loving grandfather, and a great friend. I had known him for about 16 years, when my mom started working with … Continue reading My hero
I want to talk about another movie that really surprised me, Joy. I really wasn't sure what it was about, people kept telling me it was about a mop, which confused me more, but Bradley Cooper was in it so of course I wanted to see it. It turns out that it's not about a … Continue reading The Joy of creativity
