It’s not *always* TBI

It's "knot" always TBI 😉

Sometimes I’m just a pain in the ass.

Sometimes I just feel sorry for myself and I’m looking for pity from anyone who has it to offer.

Sometimes I’m just ill-behaved.

TBI certain doesn’t help these. But it’s not necessarily the cause.

Oh, well — time to just get on with it.

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. Well, we all like to have an excuse when it comes to our personal behavior. And we tend to not always realize other people’s excuses. I do want to say that you are a person who is always striving to do better and improve. You take accountability when you make mistakes. There are times when it is TBI or some factor beyond your control. And there are times when things are in your control. Either way, I know you always try to overcome. You have come so far so don’t look down now!
