which fold?

In a few weeks I go to train to be a peer-to-peer visitor for other brain injury victims.

My plan is to just keep going in and out of their room, changing my shirt color each time.

I should be great at this.

The real reason Jill (my old PT) suggested this program for me was two-fold, what I can give and what I need.

I’m willing to talk about the simple stuff, but also the things patients might not have found the strengh or sense of self yet to give voice.

Some things take time.

Some things you have to be told it’s ok to laugh about. Or cry. Or be angry.

Some things you want to know you’re not the only one.

Some things you intrinsically know that no one but another survivor would understand.

I’m still trying to figure out if these things are fold one or fold two.

I’m trying to raise dreamers, you can read about them here

    You will be SUCH a blessing.
    I found you so easy to talk to that night in the bar (seriously!) and honestly, I was grateful.
    I wasn’t sure that I was fitting in, and you made me feel so immediately at ease.
    You will be awesome.
