“This is a brain injury situation”

I am sharing with you all today the words of my neuro psych doc who has been on this journey with me from the beginning. He's one of my biggest fans who passes my blog onto shrinks of all stripes. I also attribute his influence being the catalyst that got me going on freeing myself... Continue Reading →
