Every Tuesday is goofy Tuesday for me. For some reason, every Tuesday has turned into this BS kind of day, where I get confronted with issues in so many parts of my life. That's okay! Rather than loathe it and actually be fearful of the day itself, I'm choosing to make it a day where I embrace my goofiness. To just be silly and fun and remember that the things that make us "weird" are what make us who we are, that attract our tribe.
.
I enjoy the silliness, I enjoy seeing pure laughter with no cares in the world, I enjoy watching people discover their passions and love life again. So what ever life hits you with, take a moment and keep fighting back ❤🙌 You're stronger than you know.

Watching these two was something special. It was as if the Instructor understood the cues given by Cheyne. They stood tall, the flipped each other over, and even more awesome they built Cheyne’s motivation. Thank you @graciecarlsbad •

Looking for some help here. Does anyone have a resource for finding a good physical therapist close by? I’m 99% sure that my remaining symptoms are stemming from the neck/jaw. I have found someone out of town who I believe may be able to help me but haven’t been able to find anyone close by me yet. I believe I’m looking for a good physical therapist who can give me a strength and stretching program for my neck and jaw who also has a lot of experience in manual therapy. Thanks in advance!#hopeafterimpact #concussion #concussionrecovery #tbi #tbisurvivor #tbiawareness #physicaltherapy #neckinjury #whiplashinjury #spinalinjury

Been working super hard in therapy, so the hubby treated me to this spunky new journal to keep track of how I'm doing. #therapy #depression #anxiety #ptsd #endthestigma #tbisurvivor #braininjurysurvivor #journal #notebook #stationary #progress
Part of yesterday’s (11/12/18) work out.  Somehow I managed to give myself a double chin. 🤦🏽‍♀️ I did about 5 or more sets. I don’t keep track when I get into it. #flexfitness #imhandicap #onlytemporary #hardworkpaysoffs #impatient #pulldowns #toldyou #justwatch #trauma #traumasurvivor #tbi #tbisurvivor #finallyskinny
This was my second to last set, I did already do 80. This was actually difficult for my right arm, my bad arm. I just always tell myself that nothing worth having is easy. I’m so excited to go to therapy today(11/13/18) and I’m so ready to throw a softball again. Granted that’s a ways away but I can still look forward to it. My therapy today is focused on my balance, basically getting me to walk 24/7. Not just when I’m in a controlled environment and happy. Downfall of me trying to walk when I’m upset is I FALL, I fall a lot and hard. I’m so used to falling through I almost know exactly how to do it. I like to think it was because I was a cheerleader my entire life. #justwatch #temporarlyhandicap #trauma #traumasurvivor #tbi #tbisurvivor #workout #cheerleader #iusedtobeacheerleader #foreveracheerleader #traumaticbraininjury #diffusedaxonalinjury #focalinjury

The person in life that you will always be with the most, is yourself. Because even when you are with others, you are still with yourself, too! When you wake up in the morning, you are with yourself, laying in bed at night you are with yourself, walking down the street in the sunlight you are with yourself.What kind of person do you want to walk down the street with? What kind of person do you want to wake up in the morning with? What kind of person do you want to see at the end of the day before you fall asleep? Because that person is yourself, and it's your responsibility to be that person you want to be with. I know I want to spend my life with a person who knows how to let things go, who's not full of hate, who's able to smile and be carefree. So that's who I have to be.

There’s reason behind this quote. 
Our brain injuries are devastating and they never really go away. But the words that lurk with them are even worse. The insults, the nicknames, the whispers, they all leave a permanent scar that can never be healed. How is it that a life changing accident, can hurt less than the words that come with it?

WOOT! Never give up. Four interviews now, and probably many more to come later! I'm SO EXCITED! 🖖 This is the best Mister Goop day news I could have hoped for. ❤️🐠 #mdphd #interview #medstudent #futuredoctor #tbisurvivor #yas
When you run into one of the people who was instrumental in your recovery, my Neuropsychologist Dr Harriet #tbisurvivor  #6thnationalbraininjuryday
As I reflect on the sunset of 31 years of my life, I remember all that the Lord God has done in and through the life He’s blessed me with.
This past weekend at home, my dad was telling me that 3 days after the car accident I was in (6-14-04) the doctors thought I would be paralyzed on the right side of my body. (When I was conscious about a month later, I remember being irritated when poked in my toes with a needle, I didn’t see the reason for it) ..That day, my dad prayed on his knees and pleaded for my healing to God. 
It was then also that my parents brought in our chiropractor to help me. Hospital staff was not supportive, and my parents had to meet with hospital lawyers and sign a document basically saying that they wouldn’t sue the hospital if I died...
Our chiropractor worked on the muscles and ligaments in my body, especially on my right side— increasing blood flow and relieving tension. The staff at the hospital and my family started seeing improvements to the right side of my body. 
I thank Jesus for His healing, and I also thank Him that although my right side of my body was weaker; that His strength has been made perfect in my weakness.
I am also thankful that my parents didn’t focus on the (temporary) paralysis, but sought alternative therapies to help me. I didn’t know about the temporary paralysis until this past weekend. And for good reason too. Growing up, they never let me have a victim mentality- and that strength of an overcoming spirit has served me well. 
I’ve graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Spanish, I’ve run a marathon; and I have lived little victories every day. 
Praise God from Whom all blessings flow! (Photo credit: my aunt (and Godmother) Ann Frie, this was my birthday card from her ☺️) #nofilter

Turning vegan was one of the many things that changed for me post trauma. I went to help try and resolve the chronic inflammatory response in my cervical and thoracic spine. I went for it 1/1/18 this year. I drank bullet proof coffee almost everyday and after 11 months of not I have finally replicated a vegan version that truly supports my adrenals in a way coffee clearly never could!

I WON'T LET YOU FALL @paulsklarxfit

Compound movements challenge me, but this time I managed to lunge with my back foot on the unstable terracore AND move my arms in opposite/alternating directions. 😊😊😊😊 However, five minutes later, I'm scared shitless doing the same exercise with 5 lb dumbbells. It's frustrating the way my brain flips on me. Paul coaches me, so that eventually, I manage a few imperfect lunges. 😉😉😉😉😉😉 For those of you challenging others to "get out of their comfort zone," think about this... chronic illnesses warriors and trauma survivors LIVE every day outside of our comfort zones. 😏😏 Cameos by @imfit.forlife, @jaclynjjohn, @trainer_marc and always @sandyrxfit 💝 😏😏This vid is from last week. It was so painful, I couldn't edit it until now. 😏😏😏 #braininjury #tbisurvivor #traumaticbraininjury #braininjurysurvivor #tbi #recovery #braininjuryawareness #headinjury #tbiwarrior

Prince Harry was working hard as a Service Dog in Training today.

“Our subconscious can not distinguish between reality and imagination” - The course of miracles .
.➖.
.Day 810 - PCS 🧠💭- “The images that we impress upon our mind especially accompanied by emotion will yield the same experience, whether they are true or fictional”.
.
.The course of Miracles is one of the audiobooks I’m slowly (but lovingly) trying to get through. When I heard this part in the book it got me thinking 🤔 about how I spent my hours alone healing.
.
.The hours to come, what I’ve done with the time, and what I could do with this time in the future.
.
.It made me think about all the time I’ve spent in a dark mental place, and even the amount of tears that has spilled down my face throughout this process.
.
.I would sit and just wish things were different, and think of all I wasn’t able to do or be. ALL the things that were and weren’t anymore. In turn, always making me more sad and angry. - “What we focus on grows”.
.
.BUT,  if this statement from The Course of Miracles is true (in which I believe that it is, and experienced it first hand) Why wouldn’t I try to incorporate this into my day to day.  What do I have to lose?.
.
.Nothing! The best part of hitting the bottom is that you are already there. There is nowhere to go but up from here my friends!!.
.
.So for the past two weeks I have made two small shifts.
.
.ONE. I have sat in a quite place with my eyes closed for 10mins a day. During this time I imagined anything that makes me happy! Most of the time- it is that  I’m healed ,and doing all the things I’ve missed doing. I paint the best stories, and feel this huge smile on my face.  Even down to the excitement in my bones during it.
.
.When I’m done with this time imagining- although not real yet, I ALWAYS FEEL BETTER! Giving me hope & dreams again! It’s a small shift but it’s helping!
.
. What do you think? Want to know my second shift?

Still waiting for my 10:00 appointment to begin. When a patient is 10 minutes late, your appointment is cancelled. I've waited upwards of 2 hours for my appointment to start in the past. Part of the reason why the healthcare system is broken is because it favors providers over patients. #healthcare #broken #drsareserviceproviders -#tbi #tbisurvivor #impatient #cmon

I usually wake up feeling like a I’ve been hit by a Mac truck🙈, I’m sure just a part of the concussion recovery..but I do feel better after having these 3 things. I literally take the 2 capsules, shake and put the patch on within 5 minutes after I wake up, then I’m done for the day. I struggle with short term memory loss still so I don’t have to worry about taking anything else throughout the day. I’ve tried other supplements but this by far works best for me. I feel less foggy & have more focus and a bit of good energy. It even eases some of my head & body discomfort. I’ve used this for 3 yrs and it’s a whole different feeling now that I’m in concussion recovery. Baby steps, one day at a time, one moment at a time & thankful for plant based nutrition that works well. I used to work selling this prior to my concussion, I’m still selling this but have slowed down after my concussion but I’m getting back my mojo one day at a time and would love to help you get started thriving. Right now new customers receive $25 off in November. I’m sorry if this sounds salsey but I have to share because it’s helping me right now and want others to feel better. Please DM me if you’re interested or if you don’t feel like chatting, just go to link in my bio, create yourself an acct and check it out... #keepingitreal 😊

Life extends her hand: “Dance?” 🧠

Background of Crazy Brain Quotes (CBQs): When my brain is tired, fritzing, or having a seizure and I decide to open my mouth, CBQs are the sorts of things that come out.  My family enjoys them, especially my kids, although Emily might be a little less fond of them because they can signal a quick descent into other symptoms. 
__
When they happen, I think that what I am saying is crystal clear. What others hear is more like a ball of tape rolling across a linty floor, picking up randomness. 
__
There are times when I know they are happening and I can write them down. In the moment, they make complete sense to me. When I re-read them or hear someone recite them, well...😂 🤔😮☺️🙃🧠❤️
__
Laughter and humor are important elements of my recovery and it’s almost like CBQs have been a gift in this season. They’re random, sometimes thought-provoking, and they all made sense to this beautiful brain at one time or another.
__
I hope you enjoy. I have hundreds written down and the CBQ fount doesn’t look like it’s going to dry up any time soon.

Cheers ✌️

Millions of us are walking around feeling like crap, struggling with depression and exhaustion, battling food allergies and intolerances, or dealing with curable sickness. The pharmaceutical/insurance companies like it this way (always follow the money 💵) They make trillions off the sick-care system.

Doing some abs yesterday. Honestly I have no idea what I’m doing but it felt good so hey I’m going to do it. By saying felt good I meant that it burned. #abs #abworkout #traumaticbraininjury #trauma #traumasurvivor #tbi #tbisurvivor #iwantabs #imtrying
My attempt at sumo squats. It doesn’t look like it but my legs felt like they were so far away from each other. Again thank you Nick for making sure everything was right. 💪🏻 It’s taking literally forever but I’ll get there. The doctors said I probably wouldn’t wake up from my coma and if I did I wouldn’t walk. 😂 I know you’re a doctor but the mind is way stronger than the body and you don’t know what I’m capable of. With that said 🖕🏻. Tell me I can’t do something and I can promise you I will. I’ve always been stubborn and for the first time in my life it’s a good thing. 🏋️‍♀️ #traumaticbraininjury #trauma #traumasurvivor #tbi #tbisurvivor #sumosquats #sumo #itried #thankyou

Delicious Alert!...Silk is made with Almond Milk...I'm suprised they didn't the Cashew which is creamier...I became a nut milk person in 2014...and sometimes I combine it with  milk...to stretch it out...Delight's Amaretto is very strong & yummy...Holiday Yumminess... Tis The Season for Holiday Joy...just make sure to get the bod  moving...everything in moderation....the Pumpkin Spice tastes richer...and hard for my tummy but still delicious...Also they do make sugar free and for this sugar addict just use artificial sweetner...I use Walmart's blue box ☺ in the sugar isle.

Day 255. When I think about the fact that I get to spend every day with this man still I feel pretty lucky. To imagine that this opportunity was almost ripped away from me makes me step back and realize how fragile life really is. Take the time to show the ones you love that you love them. And even those you don’t love or know show them kindness. Especially if it’s the creeper in your back seat 👆🏼😜 we cannot start over • but we can begin now • and make a new ending -zig ziglar

Handler post: (PLEASE READ)
I got fisher at a young age. Fisher’s and I as a team we didn’t do very well at first.But after almost having to give up on a wonderful dog. After being an  inpatient treatment facility for 8 months and 16 days. I worked really hard to retrain my service dog . That was a success! But I am still a teenager wanting to be as independent as I Can be. That doesn’t mean I don’t need a service dog  in my life.  It means there are some places where I am with my family and I don’t always need my service dog. I often take him to a lot of youth events ,church events and many more places . He still does tasks and regular training sessions. *Please leave questions or comments down* follow our Pawtners: @the.brindle.sdit @dexterthegermanhusky @baileytheservicepit #genralizedanxiety #sensoryprocessingdisorder #tbisurvivor #mentalhealthawareness #adhd #thedodo #pleasedontjudgeme #psychiatricservicedog #servicedogteam #servicedog #runyourdognotyourmouth

These is nothing quite like change, whether it be a season in nature or in life. Take time to embrace change, process the losses, live in the present, and walk boldly into the future.
