Leaving Twitter – for a while

There were 10 minutes left on Christmas Day...I’ve been thinking a lot about Twitter, lately… Looking at the stream of tweets over the past few days, it’s probably a good idea for me to just leave it alone.

I need to both simplify my life and deepen it, and Twitter does the exact opposite for me — it complicates things and floods me with 140 characters of comment that don’t help me sort things through.

So, for the holidays, I’ll be taking a break from it. Not canceling my account, but just not posting to it, not reading it, just leaving it alone.

Have a good holiday season, everybody on Twitter. I may see you in the New Year.

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. Glad you liked it! I am so done with all the negativity and selfishness from the social media. I’m never going down that path again. The content and attitude on WP is so much better


  2. You know, I agree. It’s sad, what people will do, when they only have 140 characters to work with. Too many take the easy way out and go down the negative path. I suspect the positive path takes more than 140 characters to explore… 😉
