My sons TBI was not as severe and was the results of multiple concussions starting with a major one at scout day camp feb. 8 2007. The were playing a game outside on the ice and someone kicked a large yoga ball at his face his head whipped back and then he hit the ice and lost consciousness. He missed 5 weeks of school and then had seven more concussions in a two year time period. He has mostly issues with memory loss, headaches, and difficulty with academics. His state testing scores have been going down every year since then and he was in the 99 percentile before the first injury. His IQ also went down.
I work in a group home and I think it is a good choice because it lets you be involved in his life without the daily struggles and he will be able to have some independence. I have one client that visits his parents every other weekend and it works out great for everyone. It will also help out in the long run as if something happens to you his world won't fall apart as much. I have another client that moved in because his mom died and there was no one else to care for him and he was dealing with the loss as well as moving into a situation where he had to get use to living with other people and different caregivers. I also teach special education and I have seen some amazing parents struggle with that choice and then realize it was the best situation they could choose.
I started my weight loss journey as part of my Woodbadge ticket. That ticket was similar to what the boys have to do for personal fitness merit badge with the 90 day plan. I had a injury that I gained everything back but I am now almost my lowest weight of my adult life.
Pain is temporary, Quiting is forever!
