'You don't know what it's like, until you live it'.
This statement is something many say, but few actually understand.
A brain injury is a very complex topic, one in which is tough to zero in on. That said, we try our best - to bring as much positive light to this very dark subject.
Today, I was reminded as to just how lucky I am to be where I am, today. Remembering this; it could always be worse. I have many struggles, and will continue to live with many struggles ahead of me - but I ground myself, in knowing, believing, and seeing - it could always be worse.
These past few days, have re-ignited the flame, which never burnt out. Instead - the flame grows stronger - deeper - and burns with more passion.
With today's visit to Parkwood Hospital, the term 'grounded' became rather apparent. Running today, I was a bitter pill at times, and found it tough to keep positive. Following the run, I returned to the hospital, which housed me during some rather dark days in my recovery.
The folks at Parkwood offer some of the best services in the Country.
