I’ve been wondering what it would be like to never have had a brain injury?
I understand why I’m wondering this, especially after my last story about having the ability to travel back in time and prevent my brain injury from happening and asking would I do it if I could?
The truth is, there are days I’m not sure I want to get out of bed, and it’s not because of a lack of motivation or any kind of depression, I don’t think. It’s because sometimes it can be difficult living with the after effects that come from a brain injury. After effects like soreness in my left side from the paralysis or the common headaches from my double vision and Shunts. It’s not easy and I’m aware of that, but the truth is life isn’t easy whether you had a brain injury or not.
So what does that mean?
It means life is tough for everyone and maybe for us brain injury survivors, it’s a bit more challenging. And that’s okay because we can live up to the fight because we’re built to survive!
My motivation has never been lacking and I’ve always been one to put forward a strong fight, but today when it’s dark, cloudy and rainy outside I can’t help but wonder what my life would be like with out a brain injury?
It took me several years after my brain injury before I could dream and I’m happy to say I now remember most of my dreams, but I wish just for one night I dreamed what it would be like to live without a brain injury and disability.
Do you ever have that dream?
