As live happen, things do not always go the way we planned.  Sometimes it just seems like everything can go wrong.  Losing hope is one of the main causes for isolation and depression.  As we move around inside a society of what everyone like to think as typical or normal many survivors look that typical part but inside things are different for many we dont even recognize our self,  friends, family and other look at us as the old person when all the time there is this new person fighting to be known and seen.  But they cannot understand it or accept it in many cases. 

I am going to share my recent journey, a surgry coming up, my internet not working, and being avoided by various people.  It just gets the better of me often times, and catches up.  I am going to share how i cope and what helps me get through each day, oh heck sometimes its minute by minute,

I think we need to realize the greatness inside of each one of us.  We need to cut our self a break and realize the great tryumps just to get out of bed with someone we didn't pick or even  want. To have the energy and strength to carry on truly shows that we have become strong and powerful, it is not us it is everyone else.  That is why brain injury is a civil rights movement, one more neccassary that equal right we are fighting for our exsistance - for society to realize who we are, that we are here and to accept that we are here and not a mental disorder.
