I just can not believe that ER and hospital visits are so complicated for brain injury patients.
We do not have fast communication that is expected.
We have very unknown reaction and fear from the processing of information. Especially when doctors and nurses are not capable of expressing themselves in their own atmosphere. There are classes for bed side manners I am sure so take them.
I hope to help in the future to clear up some of these mistakes.
Have a lovely day!

On the May 19th just do not know if I would be.
I have been blessed with a TBI and times it is hard to know "how sick I am"
I have also been blessed with a Hemiplegic Migraine that is very interesting trip!!!
There times when I go to bed at night and I really do not know if I am going to wake up.
There are other ills due to living out of the country and not being able to get a specialist even though tax dollars were paid.
We are lucky here that there is help if you really look for it. Yes, help if you really look for it.\
it is hard to look; it is frustrating to look but do it. Ask questions to other people to get help?
Did you ever question again later - why?
Well this day and age in time of opinions and government values of allowing people not to work
A time when you get a dangerous disease and fight for your life.
Brain injury patients was not put at the top of the list but considered normal and wait
Well, I get my daily help for brain injury
Researching more programs.
All the best!
My birthday is always at brain awareness week. Something tells me it was meant to be.
I have a lot to say but I am just going to share pic.
But it is blank.
Well got to fit that!!!!
While you sometimes do not have health problems beyond your brain injury.
There are some of us that do.
Brain Injury (TBI or ABI) has particular functions to each brain.
Yes! I believe Severe concussions come back!
Mine did at 60 years of age!
Wow! Trigeminal Nerve cane into my life like the most painful painful experience. It is hard to explain how bad the nerve comes back.
Here are some pictures from Wiki that I retrieved.
The blue is the major section and that is a bear that hurts till you can not think anymore. I had mine Gamma Knife out by The Brain Expert in Atlanta, GA.
We all want this over
We all wonder what it is all about
We all have so many questions
Well, I have a media person that has updated my Instagram @gemassistfoundation and linked to Facebook. It is sooo unbelievable the difference.
She is an Artist but also a computer wiz.... StudioNatk
I do not write as much as you I ought to on my Blog but it is really difficult to have free time.
Since my brain injury, I do not feel pain as others and I can get real sick and not know it till I am in an ER or in the Dr office every few days..
You have said it better than I - David Grant
I believe why you do not hear about Brain Injury. People are afraid it might happen to them. Do you know I have had people tell me that they would rather give to animals than to help Brain Injury patients help? You have the green ribbon; I made this design to get away from the ribbon and people realize when you wear this symbol that You are aware.
Surgery is soo scary for anyone but for a brain injury patient
Our risk is higher than normal
Any mistake and yes every time I go to hospital but Frazier Rehabilitation Institute
There are mistakes; doctors will not call drs
Doctors will not check with long term doctor about health
I made it again
Seizures and dysfunction, By the Grace of God

It can happen; One second one moment
Your world changes
I have sold and had donations
I did not meet my goal but I have had help a
I think you very much!
It is very difficult for people to understand brain injuries.
How it is a long term life issue.
How much rehabilitation cost?
Well thank God
I can help others!7
All the best!!!!
My name is Deborah Marie. After my Brain Injury, I have become an artist in jewelry, pictures and cloth. I can not make a piece twice but I can design that piece once and then redesign it in another way!
Screens are not wide enought to show the brain and the designs with Foundations.
I have tried but I made it better.
Tired again. I am offline. Deborah Marie
My story – Deborah Marie, Designer by Hobby for GEMASSIST Brain Awareness
Every morning I wake up and I do not know how the day will begin. God will bless me either way. My hemiplegic migraine and my left hemisphere damage and trigeminal neuralgia complicate the neurons in my brain. I could stop and give up but I have learned with support from Shepherd Center Hospital, GA and Frazier Rehabilitation Institute, KY that I do not have to give up. All I have to do is the one thing for each day to accomplish my task. By no means is my life perfect or was it when I was a Project Manager, but my self – esteem was there before my injury. There was no accident, no great point of change, but many mistakes from a rare migraine treatment with many misdiagnosis before that. Nobody likes to hear that especially me since Engineering is an exact science at its best, but the world of medical there is a room for error and when errors are made. It can change a life forever.
I woke up today today and realized that my recent depression was from knowledge.
Yes, the available knowledge which I am glad for it! That the Doctor that caused my brain injury is back at work!!!
Work as a doctor!!
I and many others lost our jobs but he can come back after damaging patients and work.
This is the wrong system for doctors!!!
Seriously people I have had a lifetime of medical bills and neurological and other medical problems since my damage. How wrong is this???
To All, (this may not be perfect writing but I did my best)
A brain injury is a life long process and I have learned over the years that it does not stop. Their are other types of brains that have life long occurrences but I believe some do get help with new drugs and schools and other training programs. Mainly if you can afford them; not everyone can as you know.
When I am in pain or not I just love hearing these voices.
They compliment each other so well.
Traveling - How do I do it?
Well, I drive locally on painless days and I enjoy 😊 it very much. I get to visit shops and cafes and old friends and restaurants in my area😀
Did I get it right?
Every day I wake up and I say to myself what a wonderful day!
I do not want to hear problems or anger or frustration because I am not ready yet.
I need that cup of coffee and breakfast then if I can make it through that I am going to have a good day.
Sometimes I wake up with pain but I try to get further than that with my coffee and breakfast- snap I am tired back to bed 😟
