Who are you? Are you what you do, who your family is, what you believe? What happens if all that changes?
My life as I expected it, changed in a matter of a second. I had achieved my major life goal: I had a clinical license, practiced at a VA, and was commissioned in the Army Reserve. I was happy.
One second, a patch of ice, a car flipped down a hill and struck a tree. The result, a life changing brain injury. All that above is gone. Well, I still have a license but am not in practice.
What I believe spiritually fluxes. For the most part, I remain a pagan/Wiccan but I don’t do the celebrations any more. Formal practice requires having a ceremony either I wrote myself or found in a good book and adapted. It also requires being able to remember things. Mostly, I meditate now and read some. There are times that I wonder what is the next life? Am I wrong and the Christian God is “punishing” me for practicing another spiritual path? Is there even something more?
So, who am I? Who would you be if everything changed?

I wander lost and confused
I’m not who I was
