SPEAK OUT! Itty-Bitty GIANT Steps

Itty-Bitty GIant Steps for Blog

 

SPEAK OUT! Itty-Bitty Giant Steps will provide a venue for brain-injury survivors and caregivers to shout out their accomplishments of the week.

If you have an Itty-Bitty Giant Step and you would like to share it, just send an email to me at donnaodonnellfigurski@gmail.com.

If you are on Facebook, you can simply send a Private Message to me. It need only be a sentence or two. I’ll gather the accomplishments and post them with your name on my blog approximately once a week. (If you do not want your last name to be posted, please tell me in your email or Private Message.)

I hope we have millions of Itty-Bitty Giant Steps.

Here are this week’s Itty-Bitty Giant Steps.

Sidney Chronister (survivor)…Even though yesterday was such a bad day for me, the one thing I did right was to apologize to my roommate after I BLEW UP on her.

Dawn Marie Forrest (survivor)…Yesterday was a pretty bad day for me, but I am so glad I could concentrate to finally finish the puzzle I got for Christmas. I also read one whole chapter of my book. That’s the most I’ve read in one sitting since my TBI – 14 months ago.

Katey Ratz (survivor)…I got a lot of exercise (much more than usual, since I am always lazy). I walked 2 miles!!! Woohoo!!

Katey Ratz (survivor)…I’m having another positive day with poetry. I LOVE to write!!!

Libby Cloos Wright (survivor)…An Itty-Bitty Giant Step: Yesterday I was able to clean, clean, clean! My partner was helping out family, and my son was in his room. I was able to clean both bathrooms; I did laundry and put away clothes, ran the dishwasher, and vacuumed; and I steam-mopped the kitchen!!! To all my fellow TBI family – have a wonderful day!!!

YOU did it!

Congratulations to all contributors!

No memory of the day that changed my life

My name is Michelle Munt and this is my story about surviving a brain injury and what I continue to learn about it. This is for other survivors and their loved ones, but also to raise awareness of what can happen to those in an accident. This invisible injury too often goes undiagnosed and it can be difficult to find information about it. I will talk about things that have helped me as I continue to recover and invite others to see if it works for them too.

Everything and nothing. GM1123 😊

Bienvenue. I’m thinking this is the spot where I am to write a witty, flowery personal section that pulls you in......I got nuthin’
