Im sorry for what i am....

Hi everyone

I have 5 documented brain injuries (meaning new MRI's after hitting my head concussions.) have shown NEW damage in my brain. I have had many falls were no new damage has occurs. So that was good news.

Anyway. I sometimes may miss explain something or inturprite something. Before you get mad at me or offended. Pleas ask for clarification. Publicly or you are free to private message me.

I never ever want to hurt or down play anyone anywhere any time.

Also my wife and daughter and friends tell me to just answer the question and not tell a story. I think I am answering the question and don't understand that I am telling a story. (My answer is to long) so I'm sorry if my responce posts are so long. Or even my "new discussion" like now is so long.

I dearly want to help others and share war stories when I have something in common. I won't reply on something I know nothing of. (please don't think that I am a know it all) my ER doc says if I had a down load button on me it would be the 2017 Physicians Refrence Encyclopedia. LOL. Because I actually have been through a lot but not everything. My years of working with suffering people I haves learned a lot from other on things I don't have so I have a little knowledge on some things (which could be dangerous LOL)

I guess what I'm trying to say is I don't wish to be seen by others as. "Well there's Overcomer again... Mr. Know it all with his 6 page answer to it all"

That would hurt me So. If I am getting that way it seams. Please. I give permission for you all to kindly step into my life and private message me and kindly tell me.

I care for all hurting. And I care for all the caregivers helping us. It is not easy for them. They didn't plan for this.

Well look I wanted to be brief and it's 2 pages. I'm sorry. (((((gentle highs for all))))

Overcomer-thank you for your heartfelt note to all of us. This is all of our safe place. Never be sorry for anything you feel the need to explain or in your feelings over explain. Sometimes it is hard for all of us to find our words and we can all get wordy. No judgement here just love and support. There is enough judgement out in the world. I am thankful that "they" (the judgement group) have not found us. We all have to stick together and help support eachother. So no worries, just love.

Hey Overcome, please don't beat yourself up for being long winded, or apologize for being who you are. If you were to read all my posts over the past years you'd be saying I had started a book here or there! Lol πŸ˜‰ Many of us write long entries, especially when we feel real connection to the issue(s) discussed. Hugs love & prayers for you and all! πŸ™‚πŸ’•πŸ™πŸŒΌ

I'm sorry about your concusions! I've had lots of head traumas too causing lots of pain etc. Not easy to deal with it all. I'm grateful for this app.. sharing & learning & feeling understood here. πŸ’œ good vibes!

With all you have going on you probably are a walking medical encyclopedia. It's good to have you around! Thank you for all you answers to all of us. Like it was said before. No worries. Just love and acceptance!❀️

Overcomer, never apologize for who you are! I am a care taker for my step daughter who has to deal with siezures all her life and who had surgery to have her left temporal lobe removed to stop those siezures.. All the brain damage she suffered for 18 year's has caused her to be a very anxious person and hard for her to comprehend things.. So this whole experience has made me a more understanding and patient person.. I'm going going to tell you like I tell her... If people don't take the time to get to know you then they where not worth your time​and not worthy of having your love, you be you and that's all you need to be. People's differing experiences is what helps us all to grow and become a better person. We all appreciate your responses and look forward to growing with you together. Sending you love and support and prayers!

Great post. No judgment here. You seem like a very kind and considerate person. I think we all just do the best we can each day and hope it's enough. I know I do. Peace. 😊

Overcomer. Thank you for sharing . I always leave important things out and ppl always ask me what I'm talking about. Or when I answer to me if feels like right away but my daughter or husband looks at me funny and tells me that topic was like 15 mins or something longer ago and don't understand why I brought it up again.

What I am trying to say is . I understand how you feel . Trying to explain to ppl about brain damage is not easy.

Thank you Ohyesidid and Westrengirl. It's places like this and people like all of you that make us feel normal and safe. It is a place of refuge we can run to. So glad we have it.

Bless everyone and ((((gentle hugs)))) to all
