All rested. Now ready to go.

The past couple of days have been a much-needed break from the flow of my everyday life. I took time off to think, to write, to consider how things are developing around me. To look at my life and consider what matters most to me, and why.

And it’s good. But now it’s time to get back in gear and get moving. I have another day off, thanks to the Memorial Day holiday, but it’s not going to be “off”. It’s going to be spent doing things that I am normally too rushed to do on a regular basis.

There’s a lot to do, a lot to get done, and that’s fine. Because that’s what I do – I get things done.

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.
