I can’t Belize it has been 4 years

I say that as I am writing this from Belize. The main picture is about 20 minutes before my life changed forever. Our life. But I still have life 💚

I came here in December 2018, just 7 months after the day my life changed forever. I visited Caye Caulker on a cruise and knew I wanted to come back.

Fast forward to May 16, 2022 and I am writing this from Ambergris Caye in Belize. We are here with a group of friends celebrating my friend Zachs retirement from the military after 23 years. It just happens that 5/16 happens to be when we are here and I cannot think of a better reason to be here and with some great friends.

Tomorrow we booked a flight over Blue Hole. They don’t fly on Mondays so it’s the day after 5/16.

For the day that is the day our world changed we will enjoy each others company and good friends and honoring living our life to the fullest.

Congratulations 🎉
Congratulations and thank you for your service 💙❤️

I cannot thank my husband for all he does for me and all he has gone through because of my accident. I feel so lucky to have him and to have my family and a few really solid friends. Life is hard. Yes I look fine but every day there is a challenge but I am so thankful to be where I am and to have the abilities that I have. I am so proud of where we are 4 years later.

In February I became a licensed driver again. After almost 4 years. What a learning experience that was and I am so glad I turned in my license and knew I was not ok to drive. Come to find out the DMV was notified so I had to jump through a lot of hoops to get it back including my physician providing a statement but I’m so glad I did what was best and took the proper steps for my safety and others. I definitely don’t drive like I ever did before and driving now is not easy and I can’t always drive, but I know my limits and when to drive and not too. I just need others to trust me that I know that and wouldn’t do anything I don’t think is safe 💚

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. Click on the white title of the blog post to read, just saying in case you might be confused like I am with all this 🤣
