Oh, hell – I’m just posting it all

Restoring your Sense Of Self after a traumatic brain injury is no small feat.

And you need all the help and support you can get.

So, while I work on my book, I’m going to be posting chapters to this blog, and making them available to people for free here – at TBI S.O.S.

Life is tough enough after TBI, to have to fork out dough on top of it.

I’m going to be making the work available in print and ebook later on, when it’s done. But this way, I can keep up the momentum, and also get the words out there. Somehow, what I write sometimes makes more sense to me — and I get valuable distance from it — when I see it online.

Strange. I used to be such a solitary. Still am, really. I just got hooked on the whole online publishing experience, I guess.

Later on, for those who want to support this blog and my work here, you’ll be able to buy print and ebook versions. But for now, I’ll just post what I’m writing, and let that speak for itself.

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. Thank you! Still in a phase where our expenditures are high, but will support how we can. You may want to consider a donation button through PayPal right now for those who can already begin to give towards your book and show they value it and appreciate it as a resource. I have said it before that I don’t read many blogs and I definitely don’t read any consistently…except this one currently. If it is a cruddy brain day, you just say it and move on, figuring out how to deal with the situation by actually working on it or letting it go. If it is a good day, you show how your efforts have contributed and thereby give inspiration to others.

  2. Let me know if okay to still respond to certain items, as have been doing when the mood strikes and volunteerism duties are not calling!
