I also just found this video from when I was practicing my Victim Impact Panel Speech for people that attend after getting a DUI, I once was one of those people who attended and it changed me. I never drank again. It’s interesting to see the difference in a year between my speaking. This is a Speech I once presented for a Clackamas County Victim impact panel, it’s funny because now I work at Victim Impact Panels for Legacy Emanuel Trauma Nurses Talk Tough, not as a guest but as an employee and I don’t speak but have let it be known I totally will If they ever need a speaker.
I am a TBI Survivor and woman who has been through a lot of good and bad. My goal by this blog is to share what I have learned and how life has happened for me and not to me. I have found purpose in it all and am here to share it. I am also sober and quitting drinking was the best choice for me. I will post about TBI, Brain Injury, life, travel, lessons learned and more. I am not a doctor or a nurse, I am a traumatic brain injury survivor who has lived 40 years of life and have an amazing mindset from it all. None of this is medical advice, that is what your doctor is for or 911 if you are having an true emergency and need help right away. I am here for community and to share all I have learned, you never know who it will help.
