It’s Done! Another great App

Did you remember to lock the door? Turn off the stove? Take your vitamin? It’s Done! gives you perfect recall of completed tasks. So when that uneasy thought occurs, “Did I remember to…?”, It’s Done! helps you confidently confirm the task is done. No need to check or re-check. No worries at all.

“sometimes I can repeat an action, like checking to see if the front door is  locked, over and over again.  I do not have OCD  (obsessive-compulsive disorder).  I am not registering the action of locking the door in my brain…”

Many people with head injury have found this App to be very easy to use and  helpful.  It also provides individuals with TBI and their loved ones with reassurance about safety.

Requirements: Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. Requires iOS 4.0 or later.>> Read more

SANDY THE TBI

“The Monster storm‘s devastation was beyond catastrophic…”

“ The worst damage we have ever seen”

I’ve always assumed that I live in one of the most resilient cities in the world.  Yet today, practically everyone I know is shaken by the power of Sandy.   It is quite a surreal experience, resembling a Hollywood Movie with costly and high tech digital effects.

In this post, I am going to link the devastation of the storm with that of a brain injury.  Why?

The answer is simple.  My goal is to help people better understand what everyday life is like for an individual after a TBI.

If you know someone who has a brain injury- PLEASE READ THIS POST.

“I’m tired of people making stupid comments, denying the seriousness and permanence of my condition”…

“They see me dressed up and think all my problems have disappeared…”

Almost every individual who suffers a brain injury feels misunderstood.  As a result, they often isolate themselves from their loved ones.

It is very difficult for most people to truly grasp what living with a head injury is like.  I am hoping this post will help you understand TBI a little better.  Support from friends, family, and professionals is crucial for every person, especially somebody with a TBI.>> Read more
