Laughter as brain injury medicine …

It is great to wake early in the morning and get to the pool before it gets busy.  It’s also routine to walk out of the house with keys in hand to unlock the car door before driving off.  What’s not routine is sitting in the passenger seat with keys in hand and waiting for…what I have no idea?

Last two pieces of pumpkin pie and they are mi...

No, I don’t know why I was in the passenger seat!  It was far past midnight so I’ve already turned into a Pumpkin or maybe 5:30 a.m. I was Pumpkin Pie!  Oh the silly things we do … and it’s really never a problem if one figures it out.

Hey, I realized I couldn’t drive while in the passenger seat.  It’s really only a problem if I think I can start the car in the passenger side of the vehicle and drive away.  I was safe with the seatbelt on in the passenger side, even though I wasn’t going anywhere!

What did you do that seems bizarre, but in your heart you know you’re not alone?

Laughter as brain injury medicine … you don’t understand

Communication is unpredictable, just as other symptoms of TBI.  Some symptoms are invisible and others are incomprehensible! As I met up with someone while working out in the pool I asked “How are you doing today?”  her facial expressions of shock Read the rest of this entry »

Laughter as brain injury medicine … reading

How many romance novels can one read? It’s reading that kept mother-in-law’s 96 year old mind and memory remain clear.  Who cares what type of reading? She handled finances, checkbook, and all her affairs until the day she died.  She learned so much from reading and learning is something that’s important throughout the lifespan.

..think the opposite

It was our pride that at 96 years old weekly library trips to checkout books and keep the brain and mind functioning were a priority.  She was an avid reader sparked by the sensational sexual romance books.  She told us the books have gotten better over time!

When asked if they ever bore her, she said they never do … “it keeps one’s imagination very much alive when the rest of the body is nearly dead!” 

Have you laughed today? What made you break out in laughter?
