Formed a TBI Brain Injury Group on MEETUP

Well today, I decided to form a TBI Brain Injury Support Group using the Meetup system.  Why? Well, it forces members to reply to event notifications and I can include the monthly meetings that they have at Baylor (BIR) to keep people involved etc.

In addition, I will also consider doing a monthly meet and greet meeting at Buzz Brews where members can show up for coffee and share ideas and stuff with one another.

The reason for all of this is because the federal gov. HIPPA law prevents care giving groups to remain in contact of their old patients once they have been released.  In some ways to the TBI patient this can seem like punishment not having others to stay connected to that can relate to things.  So, hopefully this may help take the edge off the loneliness factor allowing the elders and the newbies to share things.
