Stepping away for a few days…

Well, it seems I’ve really over-extended myself, and now I need to take some time off to recuperate. Go for a long walk. Get some sleep. Just take care of myself. I’m actually making good headway on my research about the physiological bases for risk-taking and danger-seeking behavior, but I need some uninterrupted time to focus on my reading, so I have a clue what I’m talking about.

I guess I just need more time to let it all sink in.

One thing that drives me crazy about this MTBI stuff is that, while I’m not (too) obviously impaired, I have behind-the-scenes issues that I need to deal with. Like fatigue. And getting turned around mentally.

I have had a really busy couple of weeks, and it’s not going to ease up anytime soon, from what I can tell. So, I’m going to remove myself from the mainstream for a little while, so I can catch up and do justice to my real-world life.

In the meantime, please check out the links to other bloggers who are writing about their daily experiences with TBI and PTSD. The links are on the left-hand side of the blog.

Back in a few…

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.
