Super Better AKA Jane the Concussion Slayer

I ran across a brilliant idea today. Jane McGonigal created a game to help her recovery from a concussion. I was struck by the parallels between her description of her post concussion mental state and my post alcohol mental state, and the parallels to a recovery program she created in the game. If you are interested: Avant Game: SuperBetter: The Ignite Talk, and a Kickstarter Project

That was really cool and inspiring. Love her tagline "Pain is inevitable, suffering is optional". Thanks for sharing, Recycle!
