Thank you for your kind words and speedy reply. You have been lovely trying to help me help my brother. You have been brilliant taking time to research my requests for me which has allowed me to spend more time assisting my brother. Thank you for being such a blessing.
Painting a mask and showing how it feels to live with a brain injury was a lot of fun and also made me feel good and important. People don't understand so thank you for allowing me to share how I feel. I can't wait to see my mask on the art display. Thanks for making me smile and feel good about myself.
Living with a spinal cord injury has been a challenge but the peer mentor program has definitely assisted me in adjusting to my new normal. Thank you for giving me hope.
