Never ever give up HOPE!

Sharing some Information and Thoughts on Head and Brain Injury

I feel, no matter how dire a situation, hope is the key, as well as viewing our difficulties as challenges to be overcome along life’s journey, as well as offering opportunities to grow.
We mustn’t have a victim attitude. NEVER! No matter what has happened to us, there are always new beginnings and new opportunities. Each one of us has positive attributes and we must not let our difficulties define us. They are merely challenges to overcome and you can develop strategies to compensate for these deficits. No matter how significant the injury, never think you are disabled… because disability is a state of mind.

The Loss of Momentum

Good insight into/of your condition and well-expressed. Reminded me of things like not being able to hold a spoon/touch nose, learning to walk again (with rails), balance problems, occupational therapist rehabilitation, etc… but nothing much known then about cognitive effects over 50 years ago. Well written, Alexander and “hang in there”.

Best wishes from the First City to see the light

Alexander Jay Pereira

In my accident, among the many other bumps, bruises and broken bones, I shattered my right wrist.

In the hospital, they put my hand together with external fixtators. I dont have any recollection of the week or two I had them installed, but based on the scars they left, I can only assume I looked like Arnold Schwarzenegger’s T-800 Terminator. After enough time and swelling went down I had reconstructive surgery where they used a home depot’s worth of pins and screws to put everything in the right place.

Coming out of the hospital, holding a fork was difficult and my wrist was frozen from rotating or bending. Over the course of the next few years, I pushed myself in rehab and daily exercise to build up my strength and range of motion. It was slow but steady progress but I eventually got to the point where I could enter…
