“I don’t think I’ll ever be happy again,” is the worst thing you can say to yourself. You WILL be happy again. Tell yourself that. You will. I promise. Maybe not all day long, but you’ll have moments. Everyday, do one thing to make a difference in someone’s life who is worse off than you. I know it doesn’t seem like they’re out there, but they are. Five years ago, I was you.
I could not see my future.
It got better. Not great. Better.
I’ll always be post TBI, but I’m able to keep moving ( I have Dystonia) on my journey http://youtu.be/-oUZATXQQTk
because I never gave up on myself and I never will. Believe in yourself. You’re totally worth it. DMRF.org

In 2010, I suffered a traumatic brain injury and other injuries when hit by an under insured driver. It changed my life. I now live with Dystonia, a rare and painful neurologal disorder that causes involuntary muscle spasms and abnormal posturing. There is no treatment or cure. The best one can do is treat the symptoms. You can learn more at DMRF.org.
I try to write about people and things that help and inspire my readers. You can find more of my story by going to helphopelive.org. I am also on Facebook, where I have five pages, Pain Brain -Anti- Inflammatory Foods, Brain Tears, The Positive Posters Page, Traumatic Brain Injury Resources Page, Janice Tindle- Writer. I am also on Twitter and LinkedIn. Simply Google my name and my published articles should appear. I've been published in Fearless Caregiver, Today's Caregiver, TBI Hope and Inspiration Magazine, The Mighty.com, and several other publications.
I am currently a caregiver for my dear mother. My hope is to someday finish my books, "Get Back Up!" and "Galicia's Granite" during my mother's lifetime.
Your interest in my care, recovery and writing is greatly appreciated. Thank you. Comments are welcome.
