You honor me! Thank you for appreciating my words. I have two teenagers and find that my words often fall of deaf ears!!!

Yes, I agree that our RN behaviors can take over at times! I appreciate your support as well. This is such a difficult process. I know some days are better, and I think "I've got this beat". And then there's other days where I feel like I've taken steps back. I just keep trying to move forward and try to stay positive. Hang in there!

Hi,
I'm the Dawn Pereda you are referring to. I am also a nurse and I suffered from a brain injury. This brain injury has left me with some memory deficits. I have completed brain rehab therapy at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN. If you would like to have a further discussion with me, please feel free to contact me by private message on Connect.
Wishing you the best through this awkward journey, Dawn
