And a Happy New Year to all

I’m really looking forward to 2015. Last year was a doozie in a number of ways, and I’m looking forward to getting on firmer footing this year.

I made a lot of good progress — mainly by clearing out the last of a year’s take-home pay’s worth of debt (over the course of three years, that is), and changing jobs. Two very important things I had been needing to do for some time… and finally got ’em done.

This next year, I think, is going to be about getting my health together and recovering from the extreme stresses of 2014. And before that. I think I need to clear out, going back to about 2010 or so. That was kind of a crappy year, with a cancer scare and drama at work. Of course, 2010 was a far sight better than the year before it… which was actually better than the year before IT… and so forth. So, all in all, I have some catching up to do.

No worries, though. I’m in a good space. I have good support, and I have a year ahead of me to get a good foundation going on.

So, as ever…


Welcome 2015 – hope everyone has a good one!

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.
