SPEAK OUT! Itty-Bitty Giant Steps
Donna O’Donnell Figurski
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
Donna O’Donnell Figurski (caregiver) … I came home from Drama Club ready to take the garbage out. I was shocked to find that it had already been taken out. David had done it! First time since his TBI (traumatic brain injury) twelve years ago! YAY! Can you see my happy dance?
David Grant (survivor) … It was around two years ago this month that my ability to read returned. Last night, I again fell asleep with a book in my hands. Sure, my pace is a bit slower, but I’m doing it. Just passed the 300-page mark in an awesome book. (Thanks again, Nick!) I marvel at the fact that I can actually remember a long and complicated plot line, something I was incapable of for years after my accident. How can I not be profoundly grateful?
Note: David is the editor for the e-zine, “TBI Hope & Inspiration.” He is also the author of several books about brain injury. “Metamorphosis, Surviving Brain Injury” and “Slices of Life after Brain Injury”
YOU did it!
Congratulations to contributors!
