Season Greetings!

Dear Friends,

I want to wish you a Happy New Year filled with peace, laughter and many successes.

This past year has seen changes in my professional life and I want to share this with you. I am now working at Burke Rehabilitation Center in White Plains with people who have suffered head injuries. This includes individuals with TBI, PTSD, stroke, assault victims, veterans and athletes of all ages and backgrounds. It feels great to be back in the Rehab setting, the place where I started my career.

One split second can change a life forever. Almost every day, I meet with individuals and their families helping them to Move A Head.

Please feel free to share this blog with anyone who may be interested.

With warm regards and best wishes,

  1. During the years we are constantly challenged by daily trials and tribulations; the comfort I personally get from Dr. Spitz extensive knowledge and experience, have directly contributed to the balance between who I was and my new found self.

    But no other time of the year is more challenging than the Holidays; a the time to reflect and reach out to the once we love! For me it has been the most DIFFRICULT time as I continue to meet the challenges of Supper Storm Sandy, and the displacement from my home, which currently has no running water, heat, hot water, gas or electricity.

    The sure thing that continues to fuel my “WHY” is my Boys, and the prospect of sooner than latter returning to the one thing I did have control off… my home as I move a head.

    Thank you Dr. Spitz for helping me remember that I have to face my head injury every second of my life, but I don’t have to feel alone!

    • Rubin,
      Thank you for your kind words. You have faced so many setbacks in the last few months…. Way more than most people could ever imagine! Yet, you continue to struggle. Your resiliency and determination never seize to amaze me! May the New Year bring you much success and strength to continue your journey and Move A Head.

  2. Thank you for finding and following me. I will also be following you just as soon as I find the “follow me” button. Yours sounds like a wonderful site and so thanks for posting and for not thinking less of TBI survivors even though ours is often a jumbled, chaotic, confused and mixed up world!

    I would like to tell you of my court date fast approaching. Heidi, if you would be interested with that or anything else…just let me know, okay?

  3. Heidi,
    Thanks for using all your professional experience to helping TBI survivors. I’m finding your site extremely helpful. I made a note to download a couple APPs on my iPhone.

    I wish you were nearby. I traveled to NYC and was evaluated by Dr. Goldberg quite some time ago. Unfortunately, I fell through the cracks in the system! I would go anywhere looking for help to regain some level of normalcy. I didn’t know what was happening. I just knew something was very wrong. I think I finally found myself after I was treated … so now I can help others once again!

    I would love to see these gaps in our system closed. I truly feel that people could get better with prompt recognition and proper treatment.

    This is a fantastic site. Keep posting. Take care and stay safe, Edie

    • Edie, Thank you so much for all your feedback. I am in the middle of my busy day and cannot respond in as much detail right now as I would like. You are so right about the gaps in the system….It gets me so infuriated…. It is so unfair that so many people with TBI fall through the cracks and don’t get the recognition and help they so desperately need and deserve! I thought about you this afternoon when I was meeting with a client, nurse like yourself, who was assaulted at the building where she worked as a visiting nurse. I wish I could get her in touch with you? Perhaps I will give her the info. for your blog?
      Take care- and I look forward to a lot more communication!
