Memory loss, but always hope of a great outcome
Since my first brain injury in 1997 l started watching wheel of fortune to help with spelling and problem solving. I still watch it. My family knows when it comes on l just shut everything down except the program. Then l went back to college now that was hard but the Lord was just wouldn't let me give up. It took about 7yrs to get a 2yr degree and after graduating and ready to take my certification and began helping people with therapy then l got knocked down again. But l Thank God for all the bad days and good days because it makes me trust and search more for his word. Then l was in church and tired of my memory loss. I was always intimidated in school because l was one of the oldest in class and all the younger students knew more. Only in classwork but not life and going through an illness like mines. So l asked the Lord please give me my memory back. When l told the doctors l got my memory back they thought l was insane. I told them God answered my prayers and gave me my memory back. Now l had a few that believed me and even at the mayo clinic some doctors also believed it but it seems a little mind blowing because usually people with memory problems as long as 19yrs don't get there memory back. Now l do lots of word games like wordscape, mahjong vocabulary builders pictoword and when l really want to challenge myself sudoku. Now that's a challenger. One time l was able to play it with no problem. I taught myself and then showed my husband but now l have to do it at least 3times a week to keep up with the game and how to play it. And l read my bible, listen to Christian music and TV. And l am learning what we want we have to speak it out and not excepting what going on to continue. I know a doctor said l will have to take lactulose for my liver forever. Now that could be true but l am not believing that and l will not except what he says. And also l have a mental issue well l didn't except that for years. And when l went to the mayo clinic they ruled that out. Now some doctors may not believe that because it is on my records but they even see that's not correct. In so many illness some of the symptoms are like a person with mental tendency and it can also be an allergic reaction. That's why l know for me l had to be my own advocate and learn as much as l can. And l feel that my illness is not a curse but a blessing because l can help someone else. And l am going to take my test to show others not to give up. Because everyone has something going on others worst then someone else but we can all overcome our challenges.
