Disclaimer this is not at all my work. But I copied it off a page on Facebook specifically for artists/writers who have experienced brain injury.
I have lost so many things since starting over, and after all that has happened in my life.
I have lost friends, and family too, but at least it has helped me to find my amazing wife.
A life changing illness or injury is devastating, and most people don’t understand the cost.
All the things that we need to relearn how to do, and all the things, and people we’ve lost.
I wouldn’t wish a TBI, or invisible illness on anyone, no matter the type of person they are.
I know Karma is real, and God doesn’t work that way, those thoughts don’t get you too far.
I remember who I was before I was injured, I remember all the good and bad I have done.
I don’t really think I ever did anything to deserve this, having a disability isn’t much fun.
I’ve lost so much since I was injured, so many people disappeared after this brain injury.
I have to be honest, I miss all of them, but the person I truly miss the most would be me.
I was just in love with the last line and it so accurate, “I have to be honest, I miss all of them, but the person I truly miss the most would be me”
