It’s been about 5 days, since I started training myself with image memory exercises.
I am noticing that I hear music better. I catch more of the details in songs I have been listening to for years. It’s like I’m hearing them for the first time.
I am getting better at picking up details and noticing textures and variations in visual experiences.
I am also very, very tired. Brain is tired.
More on this tomorrow, when I do my next image memory practice.
I created a new page with all the images on it, so you can use the ones I have:
Images for Memory Practice – click to go to the page (warning – it’s a big page, there are lots of images, but I hope it’s worth the wait for you)
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.

That reminds me of the neuropysch testing. Hope you’re well
Yes – I actually patterned it after neuropsych training, with the difference being that I keep referring back to the images to spot-check and adjust how I remember the images.
In another week, I’m going to try turning them around to see how I remember them from different angles.
