Today I'm reading about pattern recognition. Go figure.
Somebody once said to me, "Are u decerebrate?" I wanted to answer 'yes.' That's what this picture is minus the baby. If that picture was of just me laying in a hospital bed, most would say it's the end of life n time to pull the plug. "Are u decerebrate?" or "Are u brain dead?" It's a rhetorical question.
There is little for the middle class in an emergency. You make too much to qualify for government assistance. You are not rich, either. What do you do when a medical emergency strikes? It happened to me. Luckily, I've worked in a program eligibility and I h...
I was 1 of these.
I used my lt hand n that report is only on that. I now also use my rt hand but it it is behind. My lt is good at using an inferior pincer (like a video game controller), but my rt hand is beginning to use it.
Implications for #braininjury n #stroke keep doing your hand exercises. Although movement isn't as good as it was, it is something. Something is better than nothing.
