The end of a mini-era

Last night, my neuropsych told me they’ll be retiring in another 5 months. Then they’re moving out of state to be closer to family.

I’ve been working with this individual since 2009, and with their help, I have come so very far.

I will miss them profoundly. It’s safe to say, they have been a huge part of my life, all this time. They’ve been a lifeline for me in many ways, providing stability and sanity, while everything around me seemed to be falling apart.

I’m still just taking it in. I have been expecting this for some time, as they are getting on in years. But it’s still a bit to get used to.

The whole things makes me a little tired. Thank heavens it’s Thursday. I am looking forward to Friday. Very much.

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.
