I need to remember Kenny switched the day he is comming ova to Sunday from Saturday cause Im too busy !:)I not only go food shopping,Im going to walmart too!

being tbi

Im having trouble accepting the fact that being tbi I tend to get very tired very fast!I guess thats cause everything is a chore now,even walking from one end of my small apt. to the other.I guess I have had a somewhat busy day but,I need to work on my stamina!


Hics was great today!We had an in-service bout being prepared for anything that may happen like weather conditions,power outages,etc.We also had a community brunch.Then I went over to learning links to see if they have any volutier oppertunities,Im thinking I could teach a class on using the internet,teach people how to build thier own personal web site!


Trivia was fun tonight but,we played in two teams.My team of corce won but,Im looking for an individual competition.Maybe I should see what trivia night at the halfway cafe is like.Maybe even meet some ladies :)!


Hics was great today!Tomorow for rec we are having a trivia world series!I always do well with trivia but,depends on the questions!Im very confident though :)!

stop and shop

I was able to get my scripts filled somewhat,they said I need to come back cause one script is 6 pills short jeesh!I dont need a can opener cause the cream of chicken soup is now a fliptop lid.


Tomorrow Im gonna go to stop and shop to get my scripts filled and get a few things!Ive gotta test my memory so Ive gutta think of something I need and remember it!I want to make my crock pot chicken so lets see if I can get cream of chicken soup!

hics 8.19

Hics was great today :)!We had groups current issues,peer tbi,team building!In peer tbi we dissussed how Lou Gerigs dissease may not be a disease but,another form of a tramatic brain injury!Then last group,team building,JR played a trick on us!SK and I where on the same team and we usually are on opposet teams cause he is ALMOST as intelligent as I but,in the end we did my suggestion and ended up winners!

hics 8.17.10

Hics was great today!We are still doing our group learning bout tbi,today we disscussed the stages we go through!Denile-Im not brain injured.Anger-mad at the world for being like this.Acceptance/hope the stage I believe Im now in!I accept the fact I have a tbi but,I not only hope I will achieve all my goals,I have confidence in my abilities to do so!:)
My scooter ran well today,it held a charge all day!They came today to fix the recepticle too!Thats a big relief to know my scooter is okay!


I went to the "y" this morning to do some heavy work-out!I came home and planned to take a cruise to walgreens but,my scooter didnt register a full charge!One of my outlets isnt workin and thats what the scooter is plugged into!I just changed it over so will se if it gets enough juice so I can go in a few hrs!Thats all I would need is for it to run out of juice a mile away!

my new life

I think Im doing good not great living my new life.I just have to be busy all the time!I do have the "y" tomorrow and that is working to fill my time but,I want more :)!


Church was great this morning!Rich was back and thats a good thing :)!He made an analogy to online banking,transfering funds between savings and checking which I do all the time.Rich is just so easy for me to understand:)!


The thing about me is Im tring to find ways to live with my tbi,stratigies!One Ive found is e-mail!I always ask if you can e-mail whatever it is,appt,event etc.Then I can save it,when I forget,go back and read it!I wish my kids would understand that!


I went to stop and shop this morning,didnt need too much just the things I was running low on!I do need some other things but,Ill take a cruise to walgreens for that :)!

8.12.10 pm

Ive had a great day!The cookout was fantastic!I had one of my bestest friends join facebook!She and I have been friends since high school.When I had my accident she drove many miles to visit me in the hospital!


The cookout today was a great time :)!Now it seems like a blurr to me probally cause I had such a great time!Thats the way things go with me,if I like an event or anything that happens Im involved with ,seems to be a blurr!Then if its something I dont like or upsetting,I cant seem to get it off my mind!

8.10.10 late afternoon

Hics was great then I went to dr. Kobells to get my shots of bowtox!There were three other doctors there too!He asked me if I minded if they observed,they were all pretty young ladies so I had absolutely no problem with them observing :)!When it comes to things like that it seems dr Kobell always has me as a pationt!Id like to think its cause Im very cooperative,can take pain,this is the third or forth time something like this has happend during my visit!Im just gonna say that is the reason :)!


Today Ive got hics and a doctors appt. with dr. Koelbell!I think Im gonna get shots of bowtox to help my muscule tone.He always administers the shots painlesssly!I get to see his pretty assistant Teresa too ;)!
