    Hey Everyone

    My name is Chris Morriah (or just cMorr) - I am a 'Severe Traumatic Brain Injury Survivor' (TBI)

    That accident was in Aug '06 and, in the Summer of '11, I was cleared to go back to School (College). So I did and, as directed, I started w/ one class at a time with the hope of being 'OKd' to take 2 in this semester. Unfortunately, there are great Dox, and there are some Dox that are NOT so great. I got one of the NOT so great ones and, thanks to a great Doc (and friend), was assisted in finding a replacement. But not until after the damage was done.

    OK ... Enough of that!

    I was given an iPad 2 for xMas and this Tablet is cool as can be (Tho I wish Apple n Adobe would play nice so that I could do the online Homework/Tests on this Tablet. But they don't, but Apple is STILL a Primo Machine, so I'll learn to work within it. I still need a Browser that will let me use the Plug-Ins on the College Class Web Site so if anyone has any suggestions, please feel free to send 'em my way >8D

    I hope you're all happy in what ever it is that you do. Don't take anything for granted and appreciate every little 'cool' thing that happens to ya. Cuz things can change is a matter of seconds, in YOUR mind, tho it make have actually been spread out over several months... you just got to sleep thru them >8D

    Thanks for any info you might have to share and Cheers! to all

    Hello, Chris! Welcome to the forum. I am a Physical Therapist and have worked with patients that have had these traumatic brain injuries. I know how hard all of my patients worked, and sound like you have the same drive! Keep up the hard work! You will certainly like using your iPad for both studying and at home! Best wishes to you.
