I have been humiliated in ways that are or should be outlawed sometimes by people I have known for years and are so cruel. They think they are cute. I am still a vibrant artist-person who puts a lot of time and work into my art but it is my therapy. I really don't know how people cope with this and I have to relate to my new-found friends at the group to find out once-a-month. I feel sometimes like putting people in their places and then...I have to explain my situation and unless they have had someone in their family or a friend or understand even a little, it goes right over their head. I hope my button and Tee-shirts will become a, "fad", and people will be solid and supportive behind us and know that the outside of our bodies is not the same as the inner -person screaming to be understood. I have 2 varieties of this shirt. Please view them and my button at http://www.artbymarilyn.net and don't forget I feed critters in my private sanctuary in my back yard, I love those little ones. They are therapy themselves for me. They accept me as I am unconditionally.
The problem with a TBI is most doctors don't understand or care because it is a specialized field and many of the people at the group say doctors just say..."Oh, you'll be fine". Thank the Lord for the Brian I injury Group. Have a beautiful day. Marilyn
