Four Years and Counting!
Four years ago, my life took a drastic turn. I could not have recovered without the help of all of you. There’s an enormous amount to be said for the excellent care that I was given in the acute stages and the therapy that I worked tirelessly at in the postacute, but it was the support that I received from you all that was the game changer. And you all know who you are.
On May 8th, 2015, the four year anniversary of my TBI, I took 2 final exams and tied up as many loose ends as I could think of before flying into NYC to celebrate this day. Yes, celebrate! The significance of this anniversary is to pay heed to everyone who made my life possible.
My flight arrived at 6:30pm, and I made my way to the rooftop where I fell four years prior. Many friends joined me with cheap Brooklyn bodega candles and a somber, yet loving, demeanor. Words did not need to be spoken… they were implied. The love that I have for everyone who made it is immeasurable, and I am so thankful! There’s a whole lot of love here.
From last year’s post: “I am eternally grateful for the incredible support of all of the doctors, nurses, counselors, friends, family and to everyone of my readers… I am humbled and grateful to be able to celebrate the new heights that I am now climbing. Let’s raise our cups… Here’s to next year. Cheers!”
