My name is Marina Agerter and I am a Traumatic Brain Injury Survivor. I sustained my TBI from a motor vehicle accident on Black Friday in 2002. I do not recall this day and I probably never will. I went through intensive inpatient and outpatient therapy, re-learning how to read, write, walk, and talk in complete sentences. I was about to complete my final semester of undergraduate studies at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities when the accident occurred. I was, after time, able to complete my studies and receive my degree in psychology. I became a TBI Support Group Facilitator in Duluth, Minnesota and I continue my group on-line on Facebook. I am blessed beyond belief and I do my best to take it one day at a time. God bless you!

I have stared a “GRATITUDE JOURNAL.”  I started at thae beginning of this year, 2018, and I write 10 things in it each morning.  There are a lot of similar themes for every day, but they all deserve repeating.  It is my own free therapy session, and it is quite healing.Continue reading “Psh, come over here so we can talk in private.
