Why do all good things come to an end?

It’s that time of the semester.  This week I ask that you reflect on the semester. What were the highs and the lows? What would you want to change & why? What have you learned that you will take with you into the next semester?

This semester was by far my best semester yet. I was diagnosed with a traumatic brain injury (TBI) after my car accident last September. My argument is that I never had a so-called “brain injury”. I just had a lot of swelling on my brain. I say this because, all of  the things that do happen to TBI patients; never did happen to me. I’m just blessed no matter how you look at it. I did most of my recovery at the Shepherd center in Atlanta; a Rehabilitation hospital. .My speech therapist urged me to not go back to school for at least two years.  However  of course I didn’t listen, and I went back to school not even after a year; and I am doing great. Who was she to tell me what I can and cannot do? Unless you’re God, then please don’t try to give me instructions. I’m taking two classes, and I have A+’s in both.

The lows are that it was hard trying to balance my school with therapy, but both of my professors were extremely understanding with me recovering. The only thing I would change is to be able to be back down there at school to get to know all of my classmates. There were times that I felt left out:( But I know that me not being down there made it very difficult to know that I exist.

I’m down to only one section of therapy, and I started out with five. I know that it will be much easier to balance school and therapy next semester. I’ve learned that I need to manage my time better.  I’m back taking a full load of classes Spring semester, and so I have to stay on it. There is no room for me to slack.
