New section posted on TBI Types and Symptoms

A new section of my book – TBI Background and Info – TBI Types and Symptoms – has just been posted.

I’m trying to set the stage for the discussion, giving some background on the topic of TBI, convey some basic understanding of TBI / concussion, and provide links for further reading. One of the problems is, the numbers and statistics all keep changing, so having the most recent stats in place is all but impossible. TBI data is a moving target. I think I need to write a footnote to that effect.

This writing project is turning into a real challenge for me. It’s forcing me to collect my thoughts in a larger format than a single blog post at a time.

It’s good for me.

I just need to keep up with my sleep at the same time.

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.
