First Steps to Your New Normal

The hardest question most patients have during their therapy and recovery from a TBI is….  now what?

Many are on top of their career and now they cannot even see straight or balance themselves.

The following steps with prayers for progress on your journey for your new normal.  

Even the simplest routines can bring hope and encouragement to families that care for a loved one with an invisible brain injury.

Blue Berries For TBI Recovery
Practice Your Ninja Skills

Step One - Blue Berries Please!

Buy a small box of blueberries from the grocery to practice lining them up two by two on a fork.  Morning breakfast is important and this practice helps with hand to eye coordination.  


The comeback journey takes daily   practice with repetition like putting one foot in front of the other.

Neurologist Doctors

Doctor Sandi Isaacson is a talented neuropsychologist that didn't give up on me like the five doctors before her.  Many of the doctors will recommended filing for 100% disability. Persistence pays off with the doctors watching the clock with their seven minute rule to maximize profits. Keep searching until you find one that listens and writes things down offering positive encouragement. 

Step Two - Smartphone Cognitive Games

Download mobile apps to practice daily on your smartphone.  

The more practice the more frustration toward future achievements and confidence.

Step Three - Dragon Mobile Dictation

You can download Dragon Dictation app for iPhone or Android absolutely free or charge. Open the Dragon Dictation app. Set the Region you are in. It is required to precise the language of recognition. Choose the Tap and Dictate button and begin to dictate. When you are through, tap the Stop button. You will see a written text of your message.


Anyone who experiences a TBI worries about what they have not written down that can help provide their life work legacy.  For some, this is urgent just as a memory returns that must be captured right now.

Expect Miracles

Expect and celebrate God’s miracles of incremental victories along the comeback journey.  Prayers for progress on your own new normal comeback story.


The Dragon mobile dictation app helped capture Scotty’s best-practice team collaboration methods for book co-authored with Anthony Washington.  

Keep Pushing On & Don’t Stop Believing

These were positive reinforcement since 2015 after a life changing event with multiple brain injuries.
