Kitteh just gave me a smooch 😻

Niklas Squishy Kitteh is seriously an Emotional Therapy champion. For a number of days now I've been in a crapload of pain. First surgery is in early July, and he sticks to me like super glue. He's such a punkin.

Being sidelined from crafting prevents me from enhancing my mindfulness

At the end of Nov I was experiencing some brain fog, fell and injured my left wrist/hand while suffering another concussion. I've already had 3 MRIs on my wrist. The next one is Tues, but this time it'll be on my neck to see if there's a pinched nerve directly correlating to my wrist.

I'm trying to remain calm, thankful for the VA and all of the wonderful care I receive. It's just with this situation, the unavoidable delays can been a bit frustrating. What's really lousy is that at first I could cross stitch with my right hand, but now my eyes and head syndrome are worse so I'm hosed. 😫

It'll all be ok I'm sure. Grateful to be able to feel, and have this platform to learn and share with others.

Survivors Typically Develop A Unique Sense Of Humor

Sure, I can acclimate to various situations. However I'm guessing that like most of you with #TraumaticBrainInjury and #ComplexPosttraumaticStressDisorder my brain can come up with some spontaneous twisted funny stuff with a gentle dose of sarcasm that'll make me snort-laugh 5 minutes after I've let it out. I dunno, maybe it's my #ADHD 🐿 or all of these conditions wrapped into one oddly wrapped package of old comics. 😁 One thing's for sure, it's definitely not boring. 🫠

It's A True Blessing Being Able To Feel

I fully believe that everything happens for a reason. God's plan has been in place and the only modifier is our free will. Though my husband and I are both looking at forthcoming surgeries soon, we're so grateful to be able to feel. How glorious to be above ground to enjoy another day full of His blessings, and share our testimonies!

Wishing you all a day full of peace and fulfilling reflection in the Lord's healing word. 🕊📖💜

Truth. Nothing shows strength like apologizing and starting again.

Nothing shows strength more than kindness on your worst days 💕❤️

Push down that anger at the world and instead use your lot in life to recognize that others may have it rough too but it will not always look like your troubles.

YOU are better than anger. Fight for a better way. Willingness to care and determination will get you much further in life than taking things out on others. You have SO much more power than the world wants you to know ❤️
