SPEAK OUT! Itty-Bitty GIANT Steps

Donna O’Donnell Figurski

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 is this week’s Itty-Bitty GIANT Step

volunteerLessia Ferrell Malloy (survivor)I’m now an official volunteer for our district schools. I was fingerprinted, and background checks were done. I got my badge. It’s a foot in the door for being a substitute teacher.delivery-van-clip-art-136684

Janiece Naber Martindale (caregiver)I’m now an official truck driver again doing local deliveries.

Angela Perilli (survivor)…I’m not sure if this is an accomplishment, but I did go to therapy to work on it. gg58995503When I came out of my coma, my right eye was turned out to the right. I had “TBI eye.” My TBI/accident/coma happened in June of 2014. My eyes returned to normal on October 7, 2014. It was a huuuuuge relief! My vision is still not the way it was before my accident. Besides fighting to be alive and learning how to walk again, that’s my success.

YOU did it!

Congratulations to contributors!

    • Thanks for commenting, Kelly. I, too, love to read everyone’s accomplishments – big or small. They are all so important. I love publishing them to offer encouragement to others.

      If you, or anyone, has any accomplishment to share, please send it to me at neelyf@aol.com. Put Itty-Bitty in the subject line.
