On the brain injury journey, looking back at how far we’ve come can be one of the most beautiful ways to practice gratitude

“I’ve never met anyone so muddled in my life!”

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) affects and upsets life on multiple levels: physical, psychological, social, and even spiritual.

It’s our turn/time to shine

“From the depth of the valleys, in the deserts of despair, there is hope… as there is the unquenchable oasis, the immense breadth and depth of the human spirit… unbroken…always.”

“The Nurses” Book???

"An Ordinary Person, One Extraordinary Life"

http://www.thedriverthenurseandthewriter.wordpress.com

I often say to “the nurse” that she should write HER story (she agrees it is quite different/amazing (“unbelievable”??) and am sure many readers “out there” would like it. By the way she reads very widely/voraciously * (big word, eh, like ‘marmalade) and writes very well – way more “conventionally/normally” than “totally impulsive/driven/obsessive” me (“you’re not like ‘real/proper writers, c;!’). Once written  I could quickly publish it with Amazon, but she’s extremely private and doesn’t share at all online…so don’t think likely to happen.

# She reads so fast that the pages start smouldering

Anyway I take up more than enough space on the www already. So get your own internet, you fairy!”
