At LAST… a chance to catch up with myself

I am starting to settle in to my new job. I even had a presentation this morning to some pretty high-up people, and they received it well. I have been incorporated into some pretty significant project work that will probably take a long time to implement, and will also have lasting impact.

So, this is good.

And I am extremely tired. I’m looking forward to this weekend, when I can catch up with myself. Tonight, I am flying solo, as my spouse is at a business function and won’t be home till late. I’m taking the opportunity to do laundry… and fast. No solid food for me, tonight. My body needs a break. I have been needing to do some fasting, and tonight is my chance.

I’ll watch my Asian martial arts movies and kick back… then get in bed at a decent hour.

This is good.

And I plan to write more later.

Junior Seau was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. RIP Junior. I know how good it felt to get concussed on a regular basis. I didn’t know nearly as well as you did, but I know that’s part of what did you in.

And I know why you did it.

Oh, yes. I know why you went down that road.

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.
