SPEAK OUT! Itty-Bitty GIANT Steps


Itty-Bitty GIant Steps for BlogSPEAK 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 neelyf@aol.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.

green-tea-cup-hiAdrienne York Campbell (survivor)…My darling husband went to the grocery store and brought home Lipton Green Tea! I am completely addicted, and he knows it. He’s always doing things to brighten up my life. I love that man!

Timothy Guetling (survivor)th

I am at one of the many Starbucks in my area. The WiFi is free. I’m communicating with you all. And that is wonderful.

Patrick Hannan (survivor)…Well, waking up is always good. foot_careWhat really led me to believe that it was going to be a positive day was that I put both feet on the ground and stood up. There have been many times in past when I was unable to do that.

Kerry Mischka (survivor)…I woke up again and I was breathing! waking-upDoes it get any more positive than that?

Susan Paynton Thompson (caregiver)…I showed my husband a cute Snoopy snowman someone had posted on Facebook. So, he took a tiny Snoopy figure outside on our deck and made me one! I am not sure that he would have done this pre TBI, but it was quite loving. It sure did make me smile!

I got my workout for the day. The walk through the hospital took a lot out of me. (The nurses got me a wheelchair to sit in.) No pain, no gain.

laundry-clip-artDana Wiedenmann (survivor)…I have to go to a laundromat. It’s hard for me.


YOU did it!

Congratulations to all contributors!
