Today is a 2.

I used to be consumed with numbers. It’s how I kept myself occupied and non-bored.

It’s how I kept myself awake while driving.

Everything can be reduced to numbers, and I was often involved in figuring out “what number something is”.

Today, for example, is a 2 — because it’s November (month #11, or 1 and 1 –>2)  20 (2 and 0–>2), 2015(8)

And since 2 (Nov)+2(20)=4, and 8 (2015) divided by 4 = 2… Today is a 2.

I haven’t thought about that much, lately, but it used to be constantly on my mind.

Most things, to me, seem to have a numerical value. Hard to explain why, but it seems that way.

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.
