I think I’m sleeping too much

Sleeping has always been my favorite pass time but I thought this all changed after the accident, having to wake up at 8:00 a.m. every day to take my epilepsy medicine. I was sure this was one of the many things the accident had taken away from me, especially since I am forced to wake … Continue reading I think I’m sleeping too much

“Too many of us are OK with the NFL’s violence, because we don’t know these men.”-Shaun King

As you all get ready for the Super Bowl tomorrow I would like to leave you with this great article I found through the  Traumatic Brain Injury Resource Center on Facebook.

That hit too close to home

Yesterday I watched this weekend's episode of Saturday Night Live which was hosted by none other than the SNL legend Will Ferrell. I was looking forward to his monologue at the beginning of the show because as anyone would assume from him, I thought it was going to be really funny, but the truth is … Continue reading That hit too close to home

They don’t need to know

I keep saying I am so open about my brain injury and I usually am but lately I feel like I don't have to give everyone so many details.

This time full of parties and other gatherings with friends and family may be difficult for TBI survivors, I mean so many people and so much noise can get a little difficult, at least for me. … Continue reading Tips for the holidays

Every 21 seconds- Trailer

Remember a few months ago when I talked about the upcoming movie "Every 21 minutes"? I have been wondering if it was really coming soon because I hadn't heard anything else about it. I finally found the trailer and I can't wait to see it. I know it will be tough to see that because … Continue reading Every 21 seconds- Trailer

We are unstoppable 

So look at what I found today:  I think it was just sitting around in that Hobby Lobby waiting for me to find it and of course I had to have it. The only thing better than that was finding another one that said María but that's asking for too much.  Finding that just made … Continue reading We are unstoppable 

Two years and a half

I stopped my monthly count once I reached 2 years of being seizure free but today marks two and a half years seizure free and I think that deserves a recognition.  It's not just two years anymore, it's over two years and I am so proud of that. There have been challenges since April like … Continue reading Two years and a half
