A study conducted to discover how #umbilicalcord #stemcells repair damage to #nerve cells during the development of the #fetus has shown that #celltherapies are potential #therapeutic alternatives to treating neurological conditions caused by #braininjury, such as #cerebralpalsy and hereditary spinocerebral #ataxia.👩🏻‍⚕️🧠

Day 207. Today was a good day. I’ll get to what the flowers mean in a second. But in the meantime, we had a doc appt for Brian today that really set my mind at ease. And with the help of our patient advocate we are working on the next plan. We’ve done it one way for the first 3 months it’s time to readjust and find a new way to be. On the way home from the doc appt I decided to stop at @traderjoes. It’s not exactly close to our house - YET - and we were passing it so I thought why not. I had Brian with me - obviously - but had yet to take him out somewhere on my own aside from his own therapies and doc appts. I was a teeny bit nervous 😬 As I was finishing up I had a full basket and was pushing Brian and an employee (Heidi A at Mesa, AZ location) asked if she could take the basket. I let her and at checkout she then offered to help me to my car. I told her this was the first outing on my own with him and your kindness and helpfulness has really touched me. She was so sweet and then gave me flowers too 💛🌹 When we got to the car she asked “is he your family?” When I told her he was my husband I think she was a little shocked. She told me I was doing great and was glad she could help. She made my day and i made sure to let her know. If she only knew what the lay 2 days had been like she would understand the impact she had on me. But I already had cried enough with her so I didn’t go into detail. So these tiny yellow roses will forever have a special place in my heart. • be kind • for everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about •

Thinking back it almost seems like I’m looking in on someone else’s life. I can’t believe how far I have fallen sometimes. As I go on with these doctors appointments and MRIs, EEGs etc. I know that I will never be back to the person I was but I hope I can learn to better live with the person I am. #invisibleinjury #braininjury #seizuredisorder

Norwich client Scott Danesi and Mindscape woodworker Dan Coleman are fabricating a prototype shelf system at our Norwich center that will be used as a template for our clients, artists, craftsmen and woodworkers throughout Mindscape. Here the guys are just beginning as they work together cutting some of the individual pieces that will be used to assemble the shelf. Once complete, they will paint the finished shelf seeing that it makes it to Thomaston where our group of artists and craftsmen will begin to replicate. Ultimately, there will be several shelves in the works at once with nearly everyone having a part of the creative process as the shelves go through the many steps (cutting, sanding, drilling, light surface sanding, painting and light finishing) from concept to complete.

We help people with brain injuries. For details, please check our website!

Art is always being created here with much on display at the Mindscape Industries retail gallery in Thomaston, CT and Studio in Norwich, CT.

🧠#TBItuesday! Check out my clip to visualize what the vestibulo-ocular reflex (aka VOR) is.
.
🧠This reflex is often compromised in response to concussion. It must be rehabilitated if deficits such as dizziness and target “movement” occur when trying to keep your eyes focused on something in front of you while your head is moving quickly.

🧠Reach out to your local concussion specialist if you have similar symptoms!

Status-quo is a fucking cop out. It’s for people who are ok with standing still and not taking chances. It’s for people who peaked at 20-years old and who limit their own growth by settling.

I don’t know about you but I’m not ok with status-quo. I always want more. To me, everything I do is impacting my future. From relationships to opportunities, I’m always looking and thinking forward. The question is, are you thinking about moving forward or acting on it, are you comfortable with the same shit everyday or do you want more? 
Point being: Success starts with the simple want, to want. The desire to see yourself in the future and how everything impacts you everyday is part of that idea. Status-quo will become you if you’re not always actively thinking and acting... Don’t fucking cop 
out @garyvee @yankees @etthehiphoppreacher @stevehappens @mykiez

Nobody has success on their own, nobody. The point of this post is to give thanks to people who’ve helped you along the way. Gratitude is undervalued and often not practiced. 
Furthermore, you can’t be afraid to ask for help. Nobody got there alone and asking for help isn’t weakness, its fucking what smart people do and something you should embrace.

Point being: Understand that success isn’t overnight and despite what you see, success is often the product of many years of failing, trying new things and involves instrumental people who help drive that success. Ask for help and give thanks @mykiez @stevehappens @etthehiphoppreacher @yankees @garyvee

Faith, as a definition it means complete trust in a person or process. I’m not using it in a religious way but in a way where you trust the process in a goal or desired outcome. 
Too many people quit the process because they want instant results. Don’t fucking do that, give time, time. You’re doing yourself a huge disservice by putting faith in the direction you want to go. 
Point being: My life, in particular and many can relate, has been kicking me in the nuts over and over for a long time and it seems like I’m just one kick in the fleshy coin purse from giving up. But, I get up and I keep getting up and with time, results appear. Positive attitude creates positive results- have faith @garyvee @yankees @etthehiphoppreacher @stevehappens @mykiez

#TransformationTuesday⁣⁣⁣
Because it’s not always about weight loss or building muscle. 🙏🏼❤️⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
I hesitated posting this, as I haven’t talked much about it. I don’t wish sympathy, but rather, I feel such a deep burning desire to educate and remind people how infinitely precious their life is.⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
These pictures are almost exactly 7 weeks apart. A freak accident that happened in seconds, leaving me unconscious, the side of my head sliced open, my entire frontal skull fractured, immobile with a fractured neck, and a significant traumatic brain injury with air pockets hovering around the brain.⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
I still remember the day I was discharged, after being in for two weeks. The neurosurgeon and multiple members of the team all said “You have healed incredibly quickly, and with unheard of strength. Yes you are very lucky, but, you obviously take unbelievable care of your body. We have never, ever seen someone heal this quick.”⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
We know what we should eat and not eat. ⁣⁣⁣
We know we should drink fresh water, get solid sleep and consume quality vitamins.⁣⁣⁣
We know we should limit alcohol and move the body daily.⁣⁣⁣
We know we should practice gratitude and give thanks.⁣⁣⁣
We know we should take care of our body.⁣⁣⁣
We know. We know. We know.⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
But what we don’t think, is that shit like this will ever, ever happen to us. ⁣⁣⁣
It’s always what we hear on the news. ⁣⁣⁣
What we see on TV. ⁣⁣⁣
It’s always the “other” people. ⁣⁣⁣
Not us. It could never be us.⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
But it WAS me. It was our family.⁣⁣⁣
Some have commented how quickly I healed. ⁣⁣⁣
Yes, I did. ⁣⁣⁣
Were the injuries serious?⁣⁣⁣
Hell yes, they were.⁣⁣⁣
After the initial 48 hrs in the trauma unit and CT scans later, the prognosis was not great. At all.⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
For years I did not take care of my body.⁣⁣⁣
Tipping at over 200lbs, a heavy smoker, and a massive binge eater, I was the definition of unhealthy.⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
But, for the past 3 years, I chose to take exceptional pride and care in my body, by flooding my body with superfoods, trace minerals, botanicals, adaptogens and telomere-supporting nutrients, as well as moving my body.⁣⁣⁣

“So far, you’ve survived 100% of your worst days.  YOU’RE DOING GREAT!!” Maybe you’re stronger than than you think 😊

Maybe it was a life threatening event or disease.  Maybe it was the death of a loved one. Maybe financial problems. 
It could be anything. Everyone has something. Every single person.

Whatever it is, you are still here.

Hang in there.  You can do it!! Mine was this brain aneurysm thing.  Damn thing nearly cost me my life.  September is the month of awareness for this issue.

It truly warms my heart that many of you took time to recommend options to help Jon communicate. Thank you all for your willingness to share ideas. 
I wanted to post this to respond to some of your suggestions. 
The bottom line with any technique, protocol, approach, device, etc.  is Jon’s lack of willingness to participate.  I know for a fact he can do many of the suggested techniques but participation is the missing piece.  So many factors could be contributing to this , but one that stands out in my mind and continually returns is pain.  There is no doubt Jon’s brain has been damaged and with that his brain can’t multitask like it did before.  All the energy it takes for just one task is overwhelming. This one task or multiple task at one time can turn off Jon’s cognitive abilities.  With that in mind, I pray and surrender this obstacle over to God because I know He is the ultimate healer. I keep myself open for ideas and know the Lord will guide the way.  He will direct me to help Jon & provide the tools that will benefit Jon. 
I felt I needed to post this since many of you have been so gracious to share ideas.  Even though I don’t have the time to reply to them all, I do read through them.  So thank you!
•••
Then comes the next piece.  As I was speaking to my dad today he asked if Jon is comfortable with anyone else taking care of him.  This is a tough subject. Jon allows only a few people to work with him but, it is clear that he relies on me.  Why? Because I am his constant.  I am him translator.  I communicate with Jon on a whole different level.  A soul level.  Even in the moments when his needs are not understood I give him the love & peace that everything will be okay.  Like my last post, the inability to communicate is beyond comprehension. Jon went from being able to communicate for 35 years to losing that ability in the blink of an eye.  I’m not sure I would be the fighter that Jon is being.  He’s truly my hero.

Our team in Norwich has been busy fabricating, building and painting a prototype shelf unit. This finished unit will be used as a template for our wood workers and craftsmen at our Thomaston center. There our collective of artists, craftsmen and wood workers will begin a group effort as they begin working on several shelf systems at a time. Nearly everyone gets involved at some point in the process. We hope you'll follow along here to see what our artists and artisans come up with.
.

We help people with brain injuries. For details, please check our website!

Art is always being created here with much on display at the Mindscape Industries retail gallery in Thomaston, CT and Studio in Norwich, CT.

Sometimes you just have to walk around dressed up like breakfast foods to support brain injury survivors. My family is my favorite. We're resilient, creative, and not that easily embarrassed 😂. #tbisurvivor #breakfastofchampions #🥓 #🥞

New calendar. 
Putting the kids birthdays on it. 🤦🏻‍♀️
At least I noticed before the teenager did....can I blame it on the #headinjury??🤪 I had just finished filling out a form for her too. At least I had the right date on that....🙄

This is an extra special story... because it’s my dad ❤️
.
“I have been suffering with a debilitating condition that causes severe vertigo, nausea and vomiting, fullness of the eardrum and fluctuating hearing loss since 1990. Over time, this has caused severe damage in my left ear and in 2014 my conditions went bilateral and I became so bad I could no longer work. I went on sick leave for 7 months and was subsequently medically retired from my job (TPI).
.
I have tried a lot of things...diet,...Zerc, steroids.... and few more all except surgical intervention. As most of us who suffer with theses symptoms are aware, it’s a guessing game regarding the cause. Some suffer severely while others suffer..... It’s hard for friends, family and work colleagues to understand, because even when you are suffering prior to and after an episode you look well, that’s is until someone sees you having a full blown episode... turning pale... cold sweets... can’t stand up... nausea.. eyes bouncing around like the ball on a ping pong bat... all the while the vertigo is getting worse... laying down and closing your eyes provides little comfort, at least you won’t fall down, but it wont stop the spinning... then crawling to the bathroom and throwing up... crawling back to your bed and feeling absolutely exhausted, finally as it the episode subsides...falling asleep for hours.... waking up deaf and feeling flat no energy... then the anxiety kicks in which compounds how you feel, even worse if you are at work or driving
.
After my daughters came back from the redox event showed me the Gene Study, I thought I had nothing to lose but give it a try. I have been using redox for a year now. I have had fantastic results and I am getting my life back.
.
Before Redox, I was severely deaf in my left ear & the symptoms in my right ear were moderate and progressing. After 3 months on redox my symptoms started to subside...& the progression has stopped. Now 12months on Redox, I feel my left ear has improved to moderate, my right ear is mild and vertigo gone."

Most people think an injury like this puts you in the hospital for a LONG time, and while it can you don't always have to be injured to that extent. --
In my case, I was physically injured for about a year. Going through #physicaltherapy, #occupationaltherapy, #speechtherapy, speaking to a therapist, and learning daily #life skills ALL OVER AGAIN @ 15 years old.

Look at me now. 25, living across the country in Arizona, 2nd house, great life- NOTHING to complain about....except for the #thoughts that run through this brain CONSISTENTLY. Some days, not even knowing how to get THROUGH the day. BRAIN INJURY speaks #mentalhealth.

So how does the jury know what law to use in a Maryland medical malpractice trial? Do they use law books? Or do they use the internet? Check out this link to learn the answer https://youtu.be/dbsaXfB1NvQ

Just four days away from SHT 2018 in beautiful North Simcoe ! 🏘️ This Regrann from @ourhomesmagazine -  HOMES THAT HEAL // Midland // shows a sneak preview of one our homes on the tour:  Recovering from a catastrophic brain injury and battling depression, Forrest Willett and his wife Julie worked with @ihdbuild to design a home that would boost their mental health and happiness. While the home takes advantage of views of #AwendaProvincialPark and the @bluemtnresort ski hills, the view is more than just aesthetic; it’s therapeutic. Forrest recommends getting outside to help with depression and anxiety symptoms, and the Willetts surround themselves with greenery as much as possible (including lemon, orange, fig and pomegranate trees that grow indoors in cool weather!). The Willett home is on the @bbbsnorthsimcoe 💜 Showcase of Homes Tour this Saturday, September 29.

This past weekend a girl complimented my hair and my reply was, “thanks, it’s totally fake!” She was surprised at my response, but thanked me for being so real💁‍♀️
.
. 
That being said, not only do I have fake hair, but my eyelashes are not genetic, but rather false, same with my eye brows, I’m wearing TWO pairs of spanks in this picture. AND (gasp) I’ve had Botox before, even though I realize I’m putting botulism in my face...
.
.
Obviously, you do you girl, but ladies, there is no need to strive for something that is not real. You are beautiful just the way you are! And it is okay to purchase great genetics, again, you do you and I’ll do me, and I’ll tell you when the “me” has a little help😜
.
That’s all😘😘😘

I don't know about you, but with a brain injury, some days are good and some days are not so good. Today is a good day for me but this little person really got to me. A good friend of mine (the gal I was in my car accident with) just had her 2nd car accident in less than two years. She doesn't live in a country with quality medical support for brain injuries. She's quite sad these days. I wish I had millions of dollars so I could help her and other brain injury survivors. Sigh. Maybe one day I will meet a billionaire and convince that person to donate to the brain injury cause. #wishfulthinking #concussion #pcs #concussionnetwork #concussioncoach #motivationalquotes #motivational #positivevibes #positivevibesonly #concussionsurvivor #concussed #concussioninfo #concussion #concussedlife #instadaily #instalike #braininjury #brainhealth #instalove

I have no doubt that you have SERIOUS reasons to feel sorry for yourself. I don't doubt the validity of your struggles for one second. But dwelling on it won't help you. No matter what you've been through, you've got to get past it come hell or high water.

We were hanging out with some friends at our house and decided to go around the room and have everyone tell their story. When it was my turn, I apologized that I had nothing to add to the conversation. I thought my story was boring and couldn’t imagine why anyone would want or need to hear it. 
I even went on to say that I was jealous of the people who had a meaningful or compelling story to tell, the kind where something “big” takes place in their life and it changes them forever. It was just about a week later when something “big” happened to me and I got a story. 
I guess I need to tell it!

Getting my colouring on ❤️ Let’s face it; having a chronic illness can be boring. We often have to miss out on the things we want to do in favour of rest. Sometimes we can be resentful of rest and find ourselves wanting to be able to do something - Colouring can be a great activity for those times. It gives you something simple, calming and relaxing to do but doesn’t wipe you out 💋 benefits: stress relief, relieves anxiety, breaks monotony of the day & enhances creativity 😘#selfcare #selflove #chronicillness #chronicpain #chronicfatigue #spoonie #runningonspoons #positivevibes #mindfulness #cantsleep #positivevibes #recovery #colouring #sharpie #gentleexercise #happyjackson #braininjury #strokerecovery #strokesurvivor #t1d #diabadass #gastritis #crps #raynauds #b12 #iphone 📚

Taking care of your brain after a concussion by resting it is smart; it is not a sign of weakness or failure 🙌

Question everything, always. It’s your life, it’s your education and you can mold yourself into the person you want to be. 
But, you can never just listen to someone. What they know and what they say is just what they believe, it is not fact. Read everything you can, question ideas and perspectives and challenge those with answers... Point being: There’s a million ways to do something and facts supporting both sides to an argument. Build your own set of information, don’t use someone else’s- question everything.

Point being: There’s a million ways to do something and facts supporting both sides to an argument. Build your own set of information, don’t use someone else’s- question everything. @yankees @garyvee @stevehappens @etthehiphoppreacher @vaynermedia

When my brain fog hits, the effort of trying to get the words out makes me forget what I'm trying to say - when this happens writing it on my phone, or even on paper, is a much better way of communicating for me. #AAC isn't about giving up, it's about communicating effectively.⠀

Let's talk ice cream. 
I'm not doing well if I eat ice cream, or sorbet, or gelato, or frozen yogurt, or call it whatever you want. 
But that doesn't mean I don't want to eat them or get a craving for them.

But frankly, my health and brain are more important than a temporary food craving. And who says you can't make your own. 
This is 1/2 a frozen banana,1 cup frozen cherries, and about a cup of organic almond milk. It got a little runnier than anticipated, but it completely satisfied my ice cream craving, without the undesirable effects processed frozen foods have on me. .

Today, my old boss and her grandson come to visit. We drove to a nearby town to enjoy the surrounding and the lake :) on the way home, we also had a hotdog.. #life #fun #brain #braininjury #headinjury #hjerne #hjerneskade

To live without pain
That's what Steptember runs for! 🔥❤👣

It's been like a month since I've hit the gym. Exams were coming up and so did the headaches. I've seen a rehab specialist that told me to avoid any weight lifting until I get an MRI, something about cerebral pressure. But yeah I just needed to exert my negativity somewhere and I was about to blow. Finished the night with some rowing. My legs are jelly now but my mind is calm. Not a bad deal at all.
