Hi Viv
Hope you’re keeping well. Your mom sounds like an amazing resilient woman
enjoy your day
“Mr middle-muddle”

ps to lift your spirits (if you’re having a bad day…and a “tough” time)

Yesterday the nurse # sorted out my clothes
“Unbelievable. Your followers on the internet would have absolutely no idea of your chaos/muddle and how you get by…daily!”
THE SCRIPT (actual)
“The nurse”:
‘I never get all the help from others , that you get’
Me
“Well that’s because of my great/irresistable charm (the looks (good) of youth may have gone, so can no longer rely on that) + you’re so boringly efficient”’
The nurse:”NO – It’s because you’re so useless and helpless; so people feel sorry for you and do it all for you.
Anyway, it’s easier for them to do; otherwise it’ll be more work for them cleaning up your mess(es).”
Afterthought:
“The nurse” is very much a “go to person”… but she says I’m the “run away fast (very) from man”!

God's Whispers of Truth

For years I went with an undiagnosed brain injury that almost ended my life in 2016/2017. The months following my close shave left my brain unable to understand or process the changes taking place in my body. My brain couldn’t even form relevant questions to ask my doctor that a uninjured person would find easy to articulate. Over the last two years, I’ve done a lot of research and studying of the human brain and nervous system. My determination for answers regarding why my body nearly shut down was and is the driving force behind all my extensive studying.

My prayers have been that God leads me to someone else who has also experienced near death due to nervous system collapse.

Yesterday my mama related to me having met a young lady in a wheelchair while she was at her chiropractic appointment who told Mama of her health journey. This…

An Open Book 3: My Story

BOOKS BY CRAIG LOCK

https://headbraininjury.wordpress.com/2014/08/03/an-open-book-3-my-story/
Here’s a short extract…

PROLOGUE

I came across this fine bit of writing, which I could closely relate to in those dark days in -. Diana’s words describe my feelings better than I could myself… so here they are…

“People speak glibly about life changing moments. Some truly qualify. You propose marriage and are accepted. You hear, ‘You’re hired’ or ‘You’re fired’ and your future shifts instantly. The doctor says ‘malignant’ (or something else life-changing) and everything is different. But anyone who has ever lived through it will tell you: It is profoundly shattering to learn, in one instant, that everything you thought was true about a loved one (my words: or perhaps your own life) is actually a lie. (Your entire world is turned upside down – what you thought about yourself, and what gave meaning to your life). The world rocks on its axis; when it is…

Invisible Disabilities Week

Matter Over Mind

It’s invisible disabilities week.. a week focused on making those who feel invisible.. visible. A week to highlight and spread awareness on battles most never face or see. I am a proud member of the invisible disability club..I personally have been diagnosed with multiple invisible disorders or medically deemed disabilities…most of these I didn’t even know existed until they resided inside of my body and brain..most I can’t even pronounce. To be apart of this club.. you have to develop some pretty tough skin..you have to let the phrase..you look fine.. just roll off your back. You have to look past when others question.. are your struggles and health fights truly there or do you just need attention?? Sadly in life.. seeing is believing.. and for our club this makes the fight a little harder. You deal with some backlash.. when one day you can do things and then the…
