Having a bad week

This conversation was posted on Facebook Friday (today). I'm sharing this personal post because it illustrates the daily struggle of living with a brain injury.
  • I have an appointment with a sleep specialist this afternoon who will be reviewing my recent sleep studies. Pray that his prescribed treatment makes a difference toward staying awake and focused, and provides relief for the lost short-term memory that prevents me from doing profitable work.

    • David Lloyd Ok. I just got back from the office. My appointment is Monday. THIS IS WHY I need this appointment.... Arrrgggghhh!
    • David Lloyd When I got home, I got another letter from Social Security Disability telling me I don't qualify because I'm able to work. I wish that was true. I WANT it to be true.

    • David Lloyd This has been an especially bad week of letting people down (and most of all, myself) because I miss appointments or go to the wrong place, or the right place at the wrong time.

I am developing a prototype resources website at http://bit.ly/resourcesfortbi. Please review my plans and make suggestions.

I welcome comments that can help make this site more helpful to those experiencing similar difficulties, or for those friends, family, and professionals who take care of bicycle injury / brain trauma.victims.

Since I want this site to be helpful to victims, I reserve the right to edit comments if they seem to conflict with that goal.

Helpful comments would include corrections of false information, references to local services that relate to my posts, or comments that help me to keep spelling, grammar, and word-choices appropriate and correct. As a brain injury victim, I depend on others to insure accuracy and to spot the kinds of errors that I may not recognize. Please feel welcome to contribute your expertise to make this site effective!
