Hi everybody. I’m gonna dedicate this blog to my little sister. She’s doing great work. Check out this link: http://www.lohud.com/videos/news/health/2014/05/17/9224465/ I’m very proud of her.
Well, another week of traumatic brain injury recovery goes by. It’s been a strange week. You know, every morning I wake up and after saying hello to my daughter in my mind, I think to myself, what’s gonna be in store for me this week? Every day is different. For example, today my feet, legs and hands are really numb. Never a dull moment. My family life has been very stressful and it seems to take a toll on me. I’ll tell you, stress is the enemy. I’ve said it before but I’ll say it again. Stress isn’t good. I have been doing a lot of art therapy and I have been taking a lot of photos. It helps a lot, I’ll tell you. I’ll include some examples of some work I’ve been doing.
Actually, something pretty funny happened to me. I’ve got this power chair, right? And it’s pretty powerful so I took it out on the lawn. Bad idea. I got stuck real bad. It seemed the more I accelerated, the deeper into the ground I went. I was finally rescued by my health aide. He had to dig me out of the hole I’d dug for myself, and he’s now recovering from a hernia. He should have gotten “Danger Pay.”
My nephew came over and he hooked up a playstation for me. I’ve been trying to operate video games. It’s good hand eye coordination. Now I see why kids get hooked on this stuff. All I need is a lazyboy chair and a cooler. Oh yeah, and a “Do Not Distrub” sign for the door.
Swimming has been good. I’ve been going once a week to do a little water therapy. It’s not bad when you fall down. It’s a little easy on the body, as long as you don’t drown. All in all, it’s all work, I’ll tell you. It’s tough, and to tell you the truth, I’m getting sick of this shit, but like I said before, there’s no other option. Although, sometimes I feel like doing what some quadriplegics did at the hospital I went to. They went to a local bar and got ripped. That’s not the answer though, I know.
You know, that’s about it for this week. I going to include some photos from the trip I took across the United States. I still don’t know how I pulled that off. I guess ignorance is bliss cause if I tried to do it now, you know, I’m more alert now, if I tried to do it now, I’m not sure I’d make it. Anyway, this is B. Nice signing off. Remember, if you’re recovering from traumatic brain injury, you just gotta be patient. Talk to you next week. Love, B. Nice.
Oh yeah, here’s the link to my other blog. Thanks.
