With the passing of Wayne,I wonder why I'm still here!In 1980 I broke my neck,2ndcervical vertebrate,all I had to do is sneeze and I would have passed or be a quad!I was in a coma for 3.5 months from a traumatic brain injury!Ive had a malignant growth on my prostrate(cancer)!I guess the old three strikes and your out doesn't apply here!My mind just keeps on asking why!Believe me I'm not complaining one bit!I'm just a little confused but,I guess that normal,for me!
Hics was great today!CmK is so kewl,I mailed her asking if the cd pack I got for kerioakie nights at hics had a song on them,I forgot the name of the song,monetarily,she said she could find out by checking her mail again but,she knows me now,I wanted to work my memory and remember the song!I was able to remember it was "how you remind me" by nickelback!I could have logged on to party tyme.com to find out too!I may have to anyway cause Imthinkin of more I want to know if are there!

Its really amazing the thoughts that cross my mind from time to time being tbi!Its me thinking of all the people I knew before and after my coma!I have the greatest respect for those that have stayed by my side through my progression and Ive lost respect for those that said they would and don't!I can like or dislike someone without having respect for them!For all that have stuck by me I say thank-you,for those that haven't,YOUR loss!
Tomorow Ive got trips booked to and from stop and shop in Braintree to do my weeks worth of food and household items!I have a list but,Ive gutta get rubbing alcohole!I use that for any topical sorces that appear,cuts and abrasions,nasty zits,you could also use this to remove any unwanted stains in and on your car!

I took a scoot to the office to see if they had automatic withdrawal for rent!I thought I had already set it up but,I had to set it up with the lady working there today,that's done!Now my rent will be paid on the 2nd of every month without me doing anything but,I just gutta make sure the money is there :)!
Ive been researching internet on the go and comcast xfinity offers a plan with someone,I forget who but,its $30 month unlimited!That would be great for my netbook and laptop!All my appointments I go to,doctors,even at hics!Ive just got to stop lending out money so I have it for my wants :)!
Hics was great!We had men's group where we talked about Charlie Sheen latest issues,brain injury education we talked about grief!I don't remember the correct kinds but,kinda like instant grief and prolonged grief.Then we had another group that kinda continued the brain education group,all I remember is JR asking us if life is better,worse,no change!How our personalities have changed!That really made me think!My life was allot better before but,its great now too!Im not working making in excess of 150,000 but,I'm living on my own again,I do okay with ssdi,I d0nt have a significant other YET :)!I'm still a happy guy!
