Woo hoo! I’m on Wellsphere

A few days ago, I got an invitation from Wellsphere to contribute my blog posts to their health and wellness site — it’s a community/info sharing place where people with all sorts of health and wellness ideas and concerns can connect and share information, experience, and (hopefully) hope. There are communities for healthy living and health, as well as resources and Wellpages – comprehensive, personalized web pages with “health knowledge from carefully selected medical experts, doctors, patients and other leading health writers.”

I’m pretty excited to be included in their site. It’s a great opportunity to spread the word not only about MTBI, but also how it doesn’t have to be the end of the story for folks when they have one.

I’m in the process of going in and cleaning up the posts that got brought in. There are some double-postings happening, which need to be edited. It’s to be expected, when things are done programmatically. And going through the site will give me the chance to get to know my way around better.

It’s all good.

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.
