Back from my business trip

And feeling good. It was the first time I’ve been off by myself overnight in a business environment since my last accident. I had a lot of reservations, as the demands were going to be pretty heavy on me, but I came through in good shape, and I have a lot more good professional connections than I had before.

I’m totally bushed, but I’m feeling really positive about it. Not only did I do well in the business interactions, but I also took pretty good care of myself.

Aside from eating more than I usually do. But then, it was on the company’s tab. And I didn’t overdo it to wild excess.

Coming home is not easy. Here, I’m still rehabbing. It was kind of nice to be in a situation where nobody knew anything about my difficulties, and everyone treated me like a regular person. Of course, it was less than 72 hours’ worth of “normalcy” — so who knows what would have happened, had it gone longer.

But the bottom line is, I did better than well, and I’m still in one piece.

Right on.

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.
