Back into the swing of things

My garage has now been cleared of all the junk I removed from the basement. The junk guys backed up their truck yesterday and threw the lot of it in. It was about 2 F-150s worth of stuff, and they even took the stuff that I could have taken to the dump myself.

Now I have a mostly clear garage and a half-clear basement, with a major dent put in the most problematic stuff.

To be honest, the worst of it was just plowing through all those old boxes, removing the mouse nests and poop, and re-boxing everything up in see-through containers that let us actually tell what’s there.

Yes, I should have done it years ago. But I could never figure it out before now. I’ve got it sorted now, though. And I’m rockin’ and rollin’.

And it’s good.

Now I can get back to my regular schedule. Back to my regular life.

It’s good to be back.

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.
