March of Dimes ABI Conference
It was with anticipation that I looked forward to my final presentation of the Spring Season before taking a summer break. The March of Dimes, in Barrie, Ontario, had asked me to speak about “That Omnipotent Beast… FATIGUE” at their conference for ABI Survivors. Fatigue is something that I know we all face in our daily challenges with ABI and I welcomed the opportunity to explore how my peers dealt with this beast.
An invitation was also extended to my Occupational Therapist and Speech Language Pathologist to speak at the conference. From a clinician’s perspective they offered various strategies and ABI Resources available to anyone struggling with ABI challenges. We are working on including those resources on my website, so please keep checking in.
Of even greater value, to me, was the opportunity to hear others with ABI talk about their experiences, their challenges, their accomplishments… much of what they spoke about was laid out before us with a sense of humour and heart felt emotion. Thank you for letting me be a part of this worthwhile event. It was a good day for us all.
