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. WOW, I am impressed. When did you start to blog? I published my 248th today (in a year). It will take me 8 years at this rate to make 2,000 posts. Great job for you!

  2. Thanks! I’ve been blogging since 2008, so that’s about 8 years. Some years I have blogged more, some years I have blogged less. I think it’s been a bit easier for me, because it’s only ever really been me. No guest bloggers to “manage”, if you will. Even so, it hasn’t happened by accident. It’s a discipline, for sure.
