DEAR PAT:

Hi, Pat. I'm 40 years old and I can't remember the names of my family members. I have a heck of a time lifting my left knee and taking my right elbow down to my left knee at the same time. Thanks, Braindead.

DEAR PAT:

I sustained both a brain and spinal cord injury in 1996. I have poor balance and I walk to the left. Although my balance has improved with time, I wonder if my it will ever be restored.

DEAR PAT:

I was in a car wreck last September in which I went through the windshield. I have an inch-long gash and a large dent in my forehead. I did not feel anything weird until this January when I started having shooting pains behind the affected area of my forehead. When the pain comes, my vision is messed up and I cannot think very clearly. I went to the doctor and he just said I was having migraines. It's starting to scare me and I don't know what to do. Who should I contact to find some answers?
