Got a copy of my MRI on CD

Hallelujah! At last I have pictures of my brain.

And now it’s time to explore it.

I got the images on CD yesterday, but I had company last evening, and this is the first I’ve been able to take a look at the images. My computer keeps locking up on me, tho’, so I have to reboot every now and then. The GE program that displays the MRI slices apparently requires more power than my laptop has. Oh, well. At least I have the images and I can look at them.

Already, I’m seeing interesting things that might explain a thing or two with me. In addition to the TBI-caused difficulties (which aren’t immediately visible on the pictures, at least to me), it appears that my brain is not entirely symmetrical in every way.

Interesting…

I’ll write more later, when I have been able to digest this a bit more.

I am a long-term multiple (mild) Traumatic Brain Injury (mTBI or TBI) survivor who experienced assaults, falls, car accidents, sports-related injuries in the 1960s, '70s, '80s, and '90s. My last mild TBI was in 2004, but it was definitely the worst of the lot. I never received medical treatment for my injuries, some of which were sports injuries (and you have to get back in the game!), but I have been living very successfully with cognitive/behavioral (social, emotional, functional) symptoms and complications since I was a young kid. I’ve done it so well, in fact, that virtually nobody knows that I sustained those injuries… and the folks who do know, haven’t fully realized just how it’s impacted my life. It has impacted my life, however. In serious and debilitating ways. I’m coming out from behind the shields I’ve put up, in hopes of successfully addressing my own (invisible) challenges and helping others to see that sustaining a TBI is not the end of the world, and they can, in fact, live happy, fulfilled, productive lives in spite of it all.
