Hello, just listened to this...

itunes.apple.com/gb/podcast...

Sorry it's an Apple link but I believe you can find it online. Check out the weekend wellness podcast...

I'm getting the usual drama from my father (he said he'd have to take time off work if I was returned!) so I'm going to Spain (from Georgia via Turkey). We can't see the future but as this podcast says...do what feels good:)

Over nine and a half years gone and...I'm still here, still struggling but still able to see and feel good. Maybe I'm manic. Whatever I am, I'm alive:) Sometimes things are tough, sometimes nice, such is life eh.

Hi Luke, Sorry to hear about your difficulties with your father. You do get about...Spain next! That's the spirit!!

I've tried downloading the link you gave, alas no joy. However, I googled Janelle Breese-Biagioni and listened to another podcast and a clip re; brain injury. She's Canadian and does a lot of good work around Victoria, BC. Lovely place btw!

I would really love to listen to the podcast you recommended. Any ideas how else to find it? Otherwise will persevere to track it down.

All the very best to you Luke! You are fearless and an inspiration. Don't allow a brain injury to dampen your spirits!! Good Luck x

Thank you Swedish blue (interesting name)

I have a screenshot but can't attach it here. I'll try and add it but... Check out weekend wellness podcast, it's the chick you mentioned with the title of you mentioned.

I was in bc pre accident, and did have the idea to go set up a life there but was injured in Idaho.

Felt great booking the ticket today but hit me after...I need to get yet more camping equipment and money isn't going to last forever but I like camping and with an open mind I might find something;):)

I've done so many trips like that but this ones for me:)

Love, Luke

It's okay Luke, I think I found the link! player.fm/series/weekend-we...

You'll be fine in Spain. Its a normal response to have an attack of nerves after booking the flight, but don't let it overwhelm. You're on a mission! Fortune favours the brave, en all of that!

Yes you do enjoy travelling and are certainly enjoying life. It's inspirational to hear you going for it.

It feels like my only option. Things are bad at home I hear (which is good to know that it's not only because of me, but the brother that told me IS at home and the temperatures in Spain are lowering and I'm tired after a cold first night in the tent!). A kind man has offered me a sofa in his home tonight, he is married with kids so should be fine. Thanks

Feels a bit much at the moment. I start a job today. Only two weeks because xmas. I left my things in georgia and I don't know what to do, or I can afford, for xmas holidays! The weathers not great here today.

If only there was an easy way to end life. Not really sure where I'm at mentally. Been many places and had different experiences since June. The repetition of work life to come.

Wish I felt stable, steady and secure

Sorry for the over two week reply, I've been camping, getting cold, panicking and socialising when I can. Crazy time. Life! Got the relaxation radio on now...chill😊

Congratulations, it must be good to be working and maybe you'l get Xmas tips. I can't work and I go headway, I'm much better now and sloyourself rt do things. I'm quite weak because of being in bed ill. I love socialising too and just had xmas dinner. But its a stressful time of year and you'll get through it and relax and enjoy yourself.

Take care

Thanks. I rushed into getting a job because it got considerably colder and I'm low on money. I'm not sure it's for me, I had a bad feeling before it started.

not sure what's right for me but Heard it's good to keep trying.

Hope you're ok

Nadolig Llawen, my sister is Welsh. If it's just a temporary job then maybe you'll meet some interesting people and it can lead to something else.

Yes it very cold here, so I hope you got some money to move out tent! I havent got rid of flu and keep sleeping, hate my head being more thick.

Yes it's easy to feel out of place with a brain injury. You just don't quite think the same as other people. It makes you stand out as a little bit different.

Take care m

😄Yes Spanish grammar is hard. When I was in France I found all different grammar tenses hard and especially now when it hard to think in English!
