Recovering from a traumatic brain injury is beyond my scope of expertise. I understand muscles, ligaments and joints not brain waves, eye, brain and inner ear connections. things just don’t seem to be quite right. feel like I’m walking on a boat all the time. That is a bit unnerving. I cannot look up […]
YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT AND WHAT YOU DO
I kept saying “there’s no magic to eating”. But, yes there actually is.
