Cleaning up and clearing out

Spring feels like it’s finally arrived.


It’s time to get organized and clean up my work space.

So, that’s what I’ve done this morning. I spent the last four hours moving crap out of the way that’s been piled up for close to a year — since I left my last job.

It feels good to get it out of the way and make room for my new projects. I have a lot of old, old stuff from past research and experiments that are just taking up space, and before long, I’ll need to relocate them out of my office and into boxes in a closet somewhere. I don’t want to get rid of them entirely, just put them aside, as I may find a use for them later.

I often do that — clear things out of the way, then realize later that I really needed them after all. And then I regret getting rid of things.

I’m trying to keep things pretty simple, actually. Not go crazy, right now. Just clear some space so I can live and move and breathe… again.

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.
