Doctor visit tomorrow

I have my annual physical tomorrow. I had an early dinner, because I have to fast for the bloodwork. I can have some black coffee in the morning. That is it. None of my rocket fuel – just black coffee, with no sugar (which I don’t use anyway).

It will be interesting to see how my bloodwork comes back. I have been eating less red meat and drinking a lot of butter coffee. I’ve been consuming a lot of butter. We’ll see how that goes with my cholesterol and triglycerides.

It’s a beautiful night tonight. My spouse is away on a business trip, and I have the next three days to do just as I please. I’m going to hang out at the library tomorrow afternoon, after I am done at the doctor’s office.  After that, I see my neuropsych, and then I am going to see an independent film, which my spouse would not be interested in seeing.

I’m going to enjoy myself.

But for tonight, I am going to take my shower and go to bed early. And get up early for my physical. It’s all good.

Onward.

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.
