  1. Thank you for your kind words the other day. I am feeling much better. You suggested that I should call someone if I am in distress, but I just moved here and don’t know anyone that I could have called. Also since my brain wasn’t working well, I did not think of trying to call anyone. I did not call my daughter because she was in the middle of her midterm college exams. I should have gone to the ER days earlier, but even that took me a while to realize since my brain was not working.

    At the hospital, when I had to fill out the paperwork and they asked why I was there I wrote “broken brain” that confused them a lot, but it was accurate..

    Your site is awesome. So much information. I have added your link to my site.

    My blog has a two fold purpose, to talk a bit about my becoming an artist, but mostly to let my readers see from my experiences what it is like to have a TBI. The “civilian” population has no idea.

    I find the worst thing for me is the social isolation (one of the reasons I don’t know anyone here yet). I “look” normal, and at first I pass for normal, then people start to see my deficits and drop me like a brick. They think of me as irresponsible, weird, or even think of me as if I have a mental illness. I hope my blog can help people see that I am really “normal” inside my head I am fine nearly the same as before the accident. It’s just the outward stuff that gets messed up. My social skills are not very good for one thing.

    Please add me to your blog roll if you can. My site is new and I am trying to get it out there.

    Again thanks for you kind words.

  2. Hi, Alex here! I have read your blog for some time and even written to you a couple of times. Your abundant resources have yet to lead me to another human being who has a visual condition called ventral simultanagnosia like me. I have had multiple tbi’s as well as six brain surgeries which have turned my neurological condition into a conscious nightmare. All that aside I was wondering if you know of anyone with this condition? I am looking for coping strategies, but I have yet to find another individual with this frustrating neurological condition related to my eyesight. If you do that would be great, but if you don’t I still derive a great level’s of solace and useful information from your enjoyable and informative blog, keep it up!

    Thanks,

    Alex

  3. Hi Alex –

    I haven’t had much luck, either, though I’m sure I haven’t looked as exhaustively as you. You may want to search for “Balint syndrome”, if you haven’t already. It seems to be related.

    You could try some forums, but they’re often indexed by search engines, so if there’s any info there, they should show up in Google. You can also try Bing and Yahoo and other search engines. Or try contacting some experts – Maybe Martha Farah who wrote this: http://mitpress.mit.edu/catalog/item/default.asp?ttype=2&tid=10115

    Good luck and thanks for writing.
