Shout out to an excellent blog

Just want to give a quick shout out to The Concussion Blog (, which is run by a certified athletic trainer in central Illinois. His blog is informative, insightful, current, and has just the right amount of information to raise awareness about concussion.

Thanks very much, Dustin Fink, for your excellent service. We need more trainers like you — those who are genuinely concerned about concussion, who are in a position to do something about it, and who are willing and able to speak about it in terms that the rest of us can hear and understand.

It’s truly refreshing to find a blog like this. In the online world of infopreneurs and salesmen/women and people looking to use the web or their blog just to make money, Dustin is providing the best service of all — information and insight into real-life circumstances that the rest of us can put to use.

Thanks very much Dustin — I hope that more people will bookmark your site or subscribe to RSS feeds and learn from you and the things you write about.

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.

  1. Thanks a ton BB!!! Your site is very good as well… In all honesty I hope that one day my site will be unneeded, but sadly it will not for some time.

    You too keep up the good work!


  2. Hey Dustin –

    I’m sure your site will grow and change over time — all for the good. Even if everyone does someday understand about the dangers of concussion, there’s still plenty to do with regard to recovery. Concussion happens… but so does life.

    Stay strong
