"You can’t quit.  Life gets messy, it’s uncomfortable, it’s unplanned.  Even with a sudden, dramatic change - you adapt, and work to overcome.  My head injury made it hard to concentrate, to count, to focus, and to work my mind and body.  With Dave and Amanda’s help, I started with true baby steps, relearning the mind/body connection, and pushed only as my brain and body allowed. I felt frustrated and pathetic many days, but the only way to overcome that was to test my strength and stamina, again and again.  I’m still adapting and overcoming, and I feel like I have a long journey ahead of me.  I know this though: quitting amid frustration is a path I won’t choose.
