Life After TBI – Let’s Find it Together
Joshua Puckett, a young man with an abuse-riddled childhood has survived a traumatic brain injury. Despite the glaring confusion and (often) utter hopelessness that accompanies such a medical anomaly as a head injury and other conditions such as Tourette’s syndrome, Joshua is a statistic beater.
He has taken his unique, drastic experiences and processed them through his altered mind to produce art and music for all to enjoy. Joshua’s life mission is to use his creativity to encourage other to build upon their new life with confidence and wisdom.
In his videos Joshua puts a raw voice to the struggles we all face with a heavy dose of reality. That reality being life is what you make it.
Facebook fostered his wishes to start a community. With regards to a group he created on Facebook here is what one participant had to say:
My understanding is that this group fosters and encourages Freedom. I love that intention. As I look at the intro video, this thought came to me to share.
“Nothing is good or bad. It’s just information.”
– From a music teacher I had
As posts materialize, I will view them as neither good or bad. But as I process the information, I will learn. And for that, I say Thank You!
If any of this resonates with you do check out and contribute to this growing community, TBI and I.
Canine companions can be put through training programs to be certified as therapy dogs. How much of that training program is teaching the owners to let the dogs true instincts shine, not talking hunting instincts here. The mother of an autistic boy was drawn into the story of a pup that was neglected, starving, left for dead. She sent love and prayers from the depths of her being directly to this slowly recovering pit bull pup. The other two family dogs were barely acknowledged by the son who was withdrawn mostly with bouts of aggression. The mom brought the dog home when it was strong enough. An immediate bond formed between the earlier desolate boy and the pooch. She says they have spent so much money on therapy and counselling… (the list goes on) and none of those came close to being as progressive as this four-legged spirit. Enjoy!
