Life Marriage

Once Upon A Time 47 years Ago in 1973

It was 1973 and two young teenagers got married. 47 years, 2 kids, a grandson, a bunch of dogs, cows, farm animals later and they are still holding strong. Not to mention all the hell their two kids would put them through and my dad himself with his motorcycle accidents. Like father like daughter? Go big or go home. They have been there for all of their grandsons medical hell too. The NICU stickers from daily visits to see Jax for months are still in my dads gold wing helmet holder. Fifteen years later. I’m sure their life and marriage is a walk in the park🤣. I couldn’t be prouder of my parents for beating all the odds against you in marriage. Happy Anniversary mom and dad💙💜 I am so thankful for them both, their love and dedication to their marriage and the family they built.

I am a TBI Survivor and woman who has been through a lot of good and bad. My goal by this blog is to share what I have learned and how life has happened for me and not to me. I have found purpose in it all and am here to share it. I am also sober and quitting drinking was the best choice for me. I will post about TBI, Brain Injury, life, travel, lessons learned and more. I am not a doctor or a nurse, I am a traumatic brain injury survivor who has lived 40 years of life and have an amazing mindset from it all. None of this is medical advice, that is what your doctor is for or 911 if you are having an true emergency and need help right away. I am here for community and am a certified health educator who knows how to navigate the healthcare system and Insurance. Always willing to help.
