I will start by telling you there have not been any professionals in my life give me hope that I would live or ever have any better quality of life in the past 16 years. It became obvious to me that when it came to brain injured, epileptics, that do not respond to medicine, absolutely no one hands out any HOPE!
I believe everyone is capable of giving themselves the gift of HOPE! I think everyone is capable of reaching down deep into their heart and soul and retrieving some hope, each and every time they need it. Some self will or passion or compulsion even to push forward no matter what can be found inside of all of us. I don't know how to help you to believe it. I am trusting that you will believe I am no different than you. I just figured out that if no one else was offering hope, I needed to learn how to give it to myself. I have done just that for several years and it works!
