Do What’s Best For YOU

Last weekend I worked a Helmet clinic in Washington at a Fire Department and community safety event. It went great, but this firehouse and where it was located left very limited parking. One of my coworkers has a handicap pass and was able to park right at the event. I had talked to my doctor […]

Toxic Positivity

Absolutely love this book I am listening too right now by a therapist. It highlights so much truth in just the 25% I am into it. I don’t believe in toxic positivity, I don’t believe it is in gods hands and that’s my belief and it’s ok if we have different beliefs. I do not […]

Sticking to my schedule

I did not want to workout today. But I’m sticking to my MWF goal to truly see how it affects me in a month with my TBI. I did a great tread bootcamp, it was fun and kicked my ass and made me push and run faster than normal with some short intervals. I’m determined […]

R&R Much Needed

Rest & relaxation and being alone is often needed for me throughout this TBI journey. This is so not like me pre TBI. But it’s an absolute must for me now. So I had a week. I was losing my mind. Living in a camper plus 2 dogs and my husband, not being in the […]

Like TBI, Life Is Best When You Are Able To Adapt

Like we learned with TBI, we have to be willing to adapt to our new life. This has so helped with Covid happening. I don’t drive, getting to the gym is not doable for me so we got a Peloton. But since Covid have acquired so much more and made our home garage gym work […]

When Will I Learn?

I woke up today. I felt normal TBI tired. I am a little sore from my workout yesterday. My husband went and got me a coffee. But I noticed I am tired and having issues, honestly I’m really struggling today. Struggling to do simple things. I can’t figure out how to work the TV, just […]

Burnout & Brain Injury

I saw this posted on Instagram and last night as I was moody, having a horrible time understanding and navigating normal, simpler tasks and having 2 nights of not good sleep I was reminded of this post I saw on Instagram by joy.energy.time and I was like that’s it, burnout. I reflected back on the […]
