    Take Steps Toward Change
    Take Steps Toward ChangeI’ve been a technical writer for 25+ years. I’ve remained in this same type of role the whole time – user manuals, online help, process guides. There was a tiny bit of marketing when I wrote and edited white papers for one employer. I had a...

    I think there is a reason we hear the phrase "The first step is the hardest." Nice post @Steven Brooks, Solid Message here! The father of a good friend of mine was the last homesteader in Alaska. Your story seems to have many parallels. I've followed and will look forward to catching a more. Cheers!

    I wholeheartedly espouse the, "...Take a step. Any step in the new direction..." You are right! 🚀For nothing would have ever been discovered or invented if imaginations had never been given flight🚀! Let us each ponder anew that which is "comfortable" and go with the "Spur-of-the-Moment" for once...or twice....and just see what worlds open up to yoU!

    Wasn't life so much more simple when we grew up as teens? Do we really realize what hurdles today's teens have to overcome just to survive past high school without life-long scars? Let us show compassion and be mentoring those who need it. We all need it.

    5 times down. 3 cars, 2 motorcycles. Twice for distracted driving, searching for casettes on the floor including once on the passenger side. One tree, and once into a truck reversing onto the road from nowhere but I was looking elsewhere. Lucky, very lucky. None other hurt either. Too lucky. Since then has been quite a while. Taught the children too. Thank-you for your efforts Dr. Margaret Aranda. Sharing.

    @Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD, thank you for sending an extremely important message with your post. I cringe when I see someone driving while talking on their phone. I find it rude as there is no way they can be totally focused on driving. They are jeopardizing the lives of others and I believe most don't see it this way. It's very unfortunate.

    @Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD I feel you on this. I have a friend who seems to insist she must make a phone call or text when driving, and it scares me. She also insists on driving fast, which sets my flashbacks in motion. I have spoken to her on many occasions and her response is the same, she drives carefully and nothing will happen. After much lectures she has stopped, and will allow me to drive when we are together, even though I drive quite slowly now (smile) but within the speed limit. I think there should be a universal ban on doing anything while driving. "Hoping someone creates an app which is mandatory for all vehicles, so the car will slow down or shut down if multi tasking is sensed and a report sent to the police station." This is a real pet peeve of mine. I was knocked down while I was standing by a driver who did not look in her rear view mirror while reversing. Maybe we need a hive for safety for life!

    We have to realize that vehicles are weapon's of mass destruction without appropriately trained and alert drivers. The damage that can be done for those few seconds is incomprehensible. Very important, @Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD for us all to persistently call foul on the way the trends of technology cause us to forget how precious life and health are. Close

    #4 @Brian McKenzie: No WONDER we have so much in common, and there's just something that draws me to you...we've both had head injuries. I don't remember if I knew that before (haha~ brain injury!) but I won't forget it now. Hey, we're Survivors and no one can take that away. And yes, I always drove a mile behind any motorcyclist, and got the heck away from them no matter where they were. Because it did't matter if they were already dead before I ran them over. I would still feel the death on my conscience, and that's something I could never bear. Wow. You keep on writing, man. Just keep on writing. You ROCK!

    #3 @Lada Prkic, yes, it is true that I am still disabled...and will remain on life-long medications and precautions for everyday survival. Perhaps that is why I want to give so much to the world each day, why my heart years to answer the calling to be a voice for the voiceless. I thrive in turning the 'negatives' into 'positives,' and I love how much I have learned about a living world of 'invisible' children and disabled who otherwise would not have had this platform. I'm just grateful to God.

    #1 Appreciate your validation of this important matter, especially since I was a survivor and could have easily died on the scene of the accident. However, I'm so glad to be a Bee now! 🐝

    As a long time motorcyclist; I trust none of you in cars. Not a single one. My Grandpa told me the key to riding in traffic was to ride like nobody sees you, and those that do - are aiming for you. Best advice you will ever get, to the two ton + idiot boxes rolling down the road. 40 years of riding and my one accident was from a deer.....that I am still convinced was suicidal. PS my own head trauma accident was because the car infront of me locked their brakes on a wet bridge deck and the Suburban behind me had nowhere to go but into me. RIP 68 CUSTOM BEETLE.

    Dear Margaret, thank you so much for sharing this story with us. I read the Clinical Case Report. In the last paragraph I found this sentence “The patient is still disabled, has severe orthostatic hypotension, and some cognitive dysfunction is expected to remain”. It’s shocking.
    I join all those who love you for everything you do for disabled people.:))

    Dear @Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD thank you for bringing attention to a monster killing and maiming thousands of lives every minute. Parents need to play a greater role in advising and training kids to learn and practice safe driving. The country I am residing in has a very bad record. Reckless and crazy driving is the norm here putting hundreds of lives at risk every second on the roads.
