My family including: my Love, seven of my children, and my mother-in-law along with myself

Hi! My name is Abi Begin, and I am 44 years old. I am married with eight children, five daughters and three sons. The age range is from nearly 23 to 10. My husband and my children are my support system and my motivation in life.

I recently had a traumatic , life-threatening accident which caused both a brain injury and several spinal injuries. This blog is due to reach a level to which I will publish a book.  The goal of this is to bring understanding, encouragement and facets of self-help to brain injury survivors, their families, and even to help those who have something in common with me… holding onto life’s woes and baggage without moving out of it.

I am a licensed massage therapist and also an instructor of ballroom, Latin, and swing dance. My pastimes are dancing, singing, and spending quality time with my loved ones. Many times when I am conversing, a song pops into my head illustrating what is being verbalized.

Due to my fall, I have anosmia, inability to smell along with that causing 95% of taste disappearing. This has been a serious trial, and I have been learning slowly about my new life and the dangers thereof if I do not change my habits to compensate for my losses.
