I guess that there have been many times stock ownership and brain injury get mentioned in the same sentence :)But, I am infact one who is on the constant recovery path from a kick butt brain injury.What happend? 1996 MI from a blood clotting disorder, hear would not restart, 45 min of CPR (yes 45 min) and 14 day Coma from O2 deprivation.Awoke without ability to walk, talk, think, remember, read .... heck was a babbling idiot at first.Once semi coherent, woman and two children cam into room and stated they were my wife and kids, I mumbled "bad joke" .. Lost 25 years of memory.Since 1996, haveTrusted the woman she was not lieing (she had photos and legal papers) :)Learned to walk. speak properly and without error (aphasia)Read at a functional and usefull level, but lack of retention prevents me from reading "books"I drive in town, but get lost beyond local areas. Forget everyones names, live off of notes, have concentration problems, cat nap 15-20 min throuhout the day, but rarely "sleep" (hey ..Einstine did the same thing)OK, to the point ....8-9 years of "coming back" I have been faced withBalanceConcentration and focusMemory Organizational skills tricks and gadgetsVisionOver stimulation by light, sound and touchPharmaceuticals, Drugs of all types, Anitidepressants, mood stabelizers memory.And Insurance companiesDisability CompaniesPain in the Ass doctorsScum sucking LawyersShrinks, Neurologists, rehab, hospitals, billing departments8-9 years of learning the systemand, the woman who tells me she is my wife :) is a Regestered Nurse, has fought every battle and more with me, and is very aware of all of the above.So, My years of experiance are available to anyone who needs it. I still have problems. 8-9 years later, sat down in a new rehab program, stared at a simple word type math problem, looked at the therapist after 15 min and said "I cant do this" 8 weeks later shee has me tearing through them.We never stop recovering. Someday I will read a Novel.Post up any questions about anything, I will try and find the answer.If all else fails, I have a soft sholder :)Steve
