Inconsolable….Unconditional Love

The past few days I’ve been quite solemn. Each day, I logged into WordPress-hoping that writing would ease the pain. And each day, I was incapable of putting my emotions into words. After an hour of quite literally breaking down and sobbing today, I am finally able to write. Continue reading

A Few Firsts

I’ve been bitten by the baking bug. As Thanksgiving approached, I knew I would not prepare a meal but decided to make bread pudding. The only problem was, I’d never made this dessert before. As I scanned over recipe after recipe on the internet, Continue reading

A little Sticky

It happened yesterday, after months of contemplating a solution, I finally gave in. Initially, I thought it was a bit silly. But deep down, I knew the insecurity it would present. Continue reading

A Sweet Gesture

Yesterday, I received a letter that caused me to smile. It was from someone who had received a package. It meant a great deal that the recipient took a few moments to write a note. Continue reading

Just What the Doctor Ordered

A few days ago, on a whim, I decided to go onto Reddit and post an AMA. At the time, I did not have an account, so I created one BrainInjuredGirl. Going into the AMA, I had no expectations, as I am not very familiar with the site. What followed-was just what the doctor ordered Continue reading

The Purge: Part I

Its been a few weeks since my last post, and this was intentional. I stumbled across a post someone had written and it caused me to take a step back, reflect and of course, purge Continue reading

Absence Makes The Heart Grow Fonder

Once again, its been far too long since I’ve “put pen to paper” Several times a week, I state out loud, “I need to blog today” Somehow the day escapes me and its time for bed. Its a pity that I can be so forgetful, because I do enjoy writing and interacting with each of you. So of course a few things have occurred in my absence: Continue reading

Life…Death & One More To Go!

I must admit-life or death, has been a constant thought of mine. Since sustaining my head injury, I’ve had an overwhelming anxiety, and fascination with death. It has not helped that a friends father succumbed to cancer a few days ago. As she passed along information on the viewing and service, I became loss-distracted. While I want to be there for her, I know its not a good idea. Continue reading

Romans 5: 4-Steadfast

I have been mis-judged. Many feel if a person is recovering from a head injury they aren’t capable of much. Yes, in some regards and definitely in the beginning, this is the case. However, I have been fortunate. Each day-I wake and no matter how much pain I am in, I embrace what the day has to offer.  Continue reading

Hear Ye…Oh Hear Ye!

This post has been a month in the making. I suppose I was contemplating  the delivery. However my words can not be placed into a pretty little package and tied neatly with a bow.  This topic is volatile and has literally waged wars (take a look at current events: Gaza, Iraq). I’ve decided that no matter how sensitive, I must write about it. Perhaps some will be offended, maybe others will agree. Regardless, my opinion remains the same: Continue reading
