So, people, life goes on. If you’re injured at work, prepare to FIGHT FOR YOUR LIFE. FRIENDS DON’T LET FRIENDS FIGHT ALONE. If I can help, I will help.   WorkCompLinda@gmail.com    WeAreTheMediaNow.com  (site building)

YOUR RADIATION THIS WEEK….

“(San Francisco) January 9, 2016 – Good Day, this is “Your Radiation This Week.” These are the recorded Radiation Highs that affected people this week around the United States. You should compare the Rad numbers directly with the Rad numbers in with my articles listed on the VT Author’s Page here: http://www.veteranstoday.com/author/bobnichols/  or below.

NAIDW TBI AWARENESS
I got to blog for 4 years straight, sometimes 24/7 when I couldn’t sleep, and other days/weeks all I could do was sleep…and #ShelterInPlace because of the workcomp system and practices, and for that, I am grateful.  Editing can be an extreme challenge with brain injury….
Since ‘resolution’ of my case, I have secured more medical assistance and on-going wholistic care, and I am experiencing measurable improvements. “Fight or Flight” plays havoc with body systems, and the BRAIN controls all body systems.
I asked one doctor recently if I might be ‘fooling myself’ to think I may be able to return to some sort of gainful employment one day. (One doctor last year said I need to make plans for Assisted living in the not distant future! Yikes!) The new doctor gently suggested that I just keep doing what I’m doing, and see how health matters unfold this year. I told him I’m studying Social Media strategies and he smiled and said, ‘That’s nice. Don’t spend too much on learning such complicated things.’ 😀 (Without some executive functions, the nuances of social media can sometimes fly right over my head!)
If you get a brain injury, BE A SMART PATIENT. DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH, and ask friends to help you. It’s dangerous out there!
Remember Remember: MARCH IS BRAIN INJURY AWARENESS MONTH. IT’S ALSO FUKUSHIMA NUCLEAR MELTDOWNS AWARENESS MONTH.  #DodgeTheRads and Protect Your Brain!
