” I truly believe we can ALL create and enthuse magic into ‘so-called humdrum little lives’. You don’t just have to be the choreographer, or the conductor of your life script – rather paint your life as the masterpiece it could (one day) be. There is a rich tapestry of talent in every human soul, that flows through the spirit of God. So don’t spend your days stringing and tuning your instrument; start making and playing your unique tunes of music right now.”

Here was a light behind the despair, beyond the darkness. At first a flicker of an ember, just a tiny pin-prick of dawning possibilities…”

“You cannot compare two brain injuries, even if they’re similar – the outcome can be totally different.”

HOPE: "from darkness into the light."

HOPE: “from darkness into the light.”

“You cannot compare two brain injuries, even if they’re similar – the outcome can be totally different. Two patients with similar conditions on a scan can have two totally different outcomes. Each patient is different and we treat them as an individual.”
– the words of Dr Ganesh Bavikatte, Consultant and Clinical Lead in Rehabilitation Medicine at The Walton Centre NHS Foundation Trust (UK)

from http://www.mirror.co.uk/sport/formula-1/jules-bianchi-crash-brain-injury-4397788#ixzz3FZjy43Y0

Jules Bianchi could make an astonishing return to Formula One, a brain injury expert has suggested. SEE below#

By the way, I think it’s crazy (and irresponsible) even speculating about Jules racing again at this early stage, IF that statement by the specialist has been accurately reported (and hopefully qualified …or was that “the journalistic licence”)??

Our focus and thoughts should just be with Jules and his family simply getting though this very traumatic time

Keep fighting (like “Schumi”*), Jules. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

“Speaking exclusively to Mirror Online, Dr Ganesh Bavikatte, Consultant and Clinical Lead in Rehabilitation Medicine at The Walton Centre NHS Foundation Trust, says he would be cautiously optimistic of the Frenchman making a good recovery.

Without knowing specifics of Bianchi’s particular case Dr Bavikatte admits it is difficult to an accurate prognosis at such an early stage.

Indeed, with patients suffering from a diffuse axonal injury, the condition confirmed earlier on Tuesday by a statement from Bianchi’s family made via Marussia, it is almost impossible to know the extent of the injury after just 24 or 48 hours.”

 

Keep fighting (like “Schumi”), Jules. Our thoughts and prayers are with you

“The task ahead of you can always be overcome by the power within
you…and the often seemingly difficult or even “impassible”) path
ahead of you is never as steep with the great spirit that lies
within you.”

The Effects of TBI: a brain bleed/brain bruising and waking up after being in a coma

The Effects of TBI: a brain bleed/brain bruising and waking up after being in a coma
• Being unaware of what has happened
• Extreme tiredness (fatigue)
• Affects short-term memory, mood and understanding
Be aware in takes some time to recover…so BE PATIENT!

“We share what we know, so that we all may grow.”

Enjoy these thoughts…

turning it someday into a bright flame… somewhere, somehow”

THANKS for the feedback/comments/Questions…but I can’t answer all the questions I get daily. Thanks for the understanding!

Hi

CAN’T KEEP UP…BUT THANKS FOR THE “THANX”
MANY MORE COMMENTS OVERNIGHT and many hundreds of thousands already on my various other blogs at http://craigsblogs.wordpress.com/2013/09/28/craigs-blogs-and-writings/…true!) …obsessive or WHAT! *So hope it’s not slowing down your loading speed!). Am really pleased you are enjoying my writings, as the reason I write is to share.

So sorry with my severely limited cognitive energy, I can’t reply individually to all you good people scattered around the planet, but DO try to read as many as possible daily (and even moderate a few when I get a “mo”),

I do really appreciate your liking, linking to and/or following this blog (and “writing in”), so “thanks for the thanx”

To answer a few questions (I’m “snowed under”, so sorry, don’t have resources as a “one man band”, nor “the mental/cognitive energy” to answer your questions (MANY) individually on my many many blogs at http://craigsblogs.wordpress.com/2013/09/28/craigs-blogs-and-writings/

* this and my various other blogs cost NOTHING, but time and energy

* I don’t do social media, like Twitter, etc. Can’t for the life of me see why people want to spend/waste their time on that (if people wanted to follow me, my close friends say it should be with a video-camera!), so just use WordPress and my various articles at http://www.selfgrowth.com

* I get really really fatigued. So don’t have time to look at other web sites or comment on design (anyway I know nothing about that). Firstly, to the few (.001%??) who may be complaining about the occasional “spelling mistake” (have you heard of British English??), or want more pictures, I don’t have time…and “don’t major in minor details”- I just write.
Perhaps ”man invented language in order to satisfy his need to complain.”
– Canadian linguist Steven Pinker

* If you keep on getting about 4 emails if you’ve subscribed to RSS feed (??),
have had that problem before on another blog and WordPress said you can contact them and said they’d sort out (email help@wordpress.com and/or support@wordpress.com)

* All my articles may be freely reproduced (sorry don’t have time write for other websites), as I’m busy writing a few books at the moment
I put most of my focus into my books, so have no idea how to add sound, video, etc to the blog…to make it better.
…but am learning “on the go”

* please feel free to link to the web site or my various other WordPress blogs at http://craigsblogs.wordpress.com/2013/09/28/craigs-blogs-and-writings/
should you wish, but I have no time to return links.

* You may not believe this, but I’m a “total non-techno”, so know, NOTHING about web site design, browser problems, feeds, hosts, servers, overlapping, etc. And lay-out is not one of my strong points. I just write and post on the blog…impulsively! How I got am where I am is a “miracle” . And no one would believe the story (only those who have true faith)! BELIEVE it (first) … then you’ll see it!
“Believing is seeing.”
(BEFORE the event)

* I don’t have a newsletter to subscribe to (Can I end a sentence with a “preppie”?).

* Will try to post articles from time to time, but all my writings are available at http://www.selfgrowth.com/articles/user/15565 and http://www.ideamarketers.com/library/profile.cfm?writerid=981

(Personal growth, self help, writing, internet marketing, spiritual, ‘spiritual writings’ (how ‘airey-fairey’), words of inspiration. Please feel free to use

* Finally, if you want to start a blog and want some tips, you may find my articles on writing at http://www.craigswritingarticles.wordpress.com

helpful If I could put up a blog, then ANYONE can!

Just go for it and good luck

thanks for the understanding and I DO really appreciate your “writing in”

“Having pursued the goals, the dreams set before us and run the race with persistence and endurance, after giving it all. Then one day standing on the summit of life, breathing in the pure sweet oxygen of achievement, totally satisfied in running the greatest race, the race of life one that ANYONE can run and win.”
