When You Feel Lazy or Tired Remember One Thing!!!

DO YOU WANT YOUR LIFE TO SUCK FOR A SHORT PERIOD OF TIME OR DO YOU WANT IT TO SUCK FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE!!! JUST SUCK IT UP AND DO YOUR REHAB! IT PAYS OFF IN THE END!!!

If you want to get your life back together, want things to be like they were as quick as possible. You must do your rehab. No matter how much you do not want to, you just have to do it.

Sitting back and wishing that things would go back to they way it used to be aren’t going to get them there. You have to do the hard work to get them there. You must relearn how to do things and do them over and over again so that your brain can establish new connections.

I know its tedious, but think of it as a second chance. You are alive and thats something you should be happy about. Ya, you need to do somethings to get your life back on track but would you rather be dead?

You may think that it would be better to be dead than to go through what you are going through ( God, I know I did) but its just not true. God or whoever put you through this because you are strong enough to handle it!

So, suck it up and do the rehab, because in the end…IT WILL BE WORTH IT!!!

First Six Months

Remember the First Six are the most important in recovering from a TBI. I say this because recovering from my brain injury I made astonishing gains in my First Six months after my accident. So, you may not want do rehab or whatever have you but you must push your self! During your entire recovery you must feel this way, because ya it sucks but in the end it pays off. You must keep pushing yourself especially during the First Six months!

Purpose of Blog

The purpose of this blog is to give people dealing with brain injuries insight and support, give them someone with experience on the subject. I have almost fully recovered from my brain injury (I do not think I ever will) that I had obtained when my Chevy 2002 Blazer ran off the side of the high way on an April night in 2006. I hope to help those who have obtained one themselves because I know it was difficult for me to try and heal fully without any one to talk to. So, if theres any way I can help let me know!

First things, First

My name is Zach Gauvin, I was involved in a serious car accident in April of 2006. I sustained a traumatic brain injury; was medically induced into a coma for a month. I then had to complete two months of rehab, where i had to learn how to walk, talk, and practice thinking strategies. I have created this blog because I want to help people with brain injuries because I know how hard it was for me. But this blog is for anyone who may be interested in educating themselves on how to recover and what life is like recovering from a brain injury.
