HEY. It's sunny today, it's a real beauty.
So everyone has to adapt their lives, people get married, have kids, get new jobs, learn all the words to Bohemian Rhapsody etc. If you want these things, you have to work with them when they enter your life.
The good news is, what we have here, isn't any different. Well it is I guess, you can choose to get a new job, brain injury just sort of crams itself into life without your permission. But all these things come with rewards, experiences like this stuff builds character, and if you really try hard enough, I bet you can come up with some things that have improved in your life since your injury.
For example; I hadn't played the piano in years before my stroke, now I've had time to start again, and I'm starting to perform. That wouldn't have happened without my brain injury. Yeah I sleep a bit more, but I can play the hell out of Le Onde, and is that really so much of a sacrifice?
It's obviously not as clear cut as that, brain injury is awful, and I have a lot more problems than sleeping too much, but I'm sure you get my point.
Come on then, let's hear some things that have chirped up since your "incident", and anything that you're doing better than before your "incident". If you can't think of one, then let's hear something that you're going to do in order to get things to chirp up.
