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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
This is a beautiful post

There was a time not so long ago when Americans, regardless of their political stripes, rallied round their president. Once elected, the man who won the White House was no longer viewed as a republican or democrat, but the President of the United States. The oath of office was taken, the wagons were circled around the country’s borders and it was America versus the rest of the world with the president of all the people at the helm.
Suddenly President Barack Obama, with the potential to become an exceptional president has become the glaring exception to that unwritten, patriotic rule.
Four days before President Obama’s inauguration, before he officially took charge of the American government, Rush Limbaugh boasted publicly that he hoped the president would fail. Of course, when the president fails the country flounders. Wishing harm upon…
