I had to leave, it just wasn’t worth it

Nine years

Today marks nine years since my TBI. Some say it’s kind of my birthday but I’m not sure that’s what it is; it caused a new beginning, that’s for sure, but I don’t feel like it’s appropriate to say it’s birthday. Birth is a happy moment and there was nothing happy about this day nine … Continue reading Nine years
