What are you doing ? how can i help?

(just join) Everything is happening in TED new ideas are coming together world movements are been started.. so i want to know what your doing ? what everyone is actually doing , i join TED because i wanted to do, not to have another "facebook" account full of intelligent people.. maybe im been inpatient and should dig around the site more but i figure i ask straight on to the peopel that have been part of this community for long short or just join .. have you been writing great ideas and supporting others behind you computer? have you been typing your way to change??? or have you been calling contacting getting the word out gathering people for your cause? have you been on the street protesting have you been to africa gotten in contact with others in your area and gotten things ready? or do you just send a check or have you done nothing at all?...

    May 21 2012: I am trying to recover from two hemmoragic bleeds in my brain which resulted from a surgery to remove a tumor (benign) from my spine. Apparently I am one of maybe three people who have ever survived a bleeed in the brain stem. I am seeking literature which can show me the way to maximize my efforts. Can you help?

      May 21 2012: Hi Debra, Have you been reading E M Hemingway's fiction like Fiesta, Snows of Kilimanjaro, Old man & the sea, For who he bell tolls etc. He was a truly happy, successful & inspiring person. You are a Hemingway Hero, happy, brave & a winner.

        May 21 2012: Thank you Gurinder! I was introduced to Hemmingway in an American lit course. He is my eldest son's favourite author but I seldom read him for his 'voice' is alien to me. Thanks for the compliments- I am fighting to regain my own life.
    • May 22 2012: unfortunately i dont have any book suggestions,some books mind you would only make it worse,,,i would like to say though start with the mind...an old karate instructor of mine,had brain cancer,,,he went on a 3 month meditation,and conditioning break...obviously no one is better qualified than your doctor,,but the mind when focused is a very powerfull tool...also comedy,humour,..ive been through some hard hard hard times,,,at times i felt hell woul;d be a step up...and two things helped me,,,one is a laugh,,try finding at least one a day,,,the second thing,,find what you would love to know and learn about it...its a great way take your mind off it,,even if briefly,,
