Happy Monday, everyone

nature-beautyHave a great day – I was very busy over the weekend, and I worked all day yesterday helping someone with a very detailed job that took a lot out of me. Still it was a good day, and although I’m not feeling great this morning, we did good work, and that’s gratifying.

After being away from it for many weeks, I’m going back to swimming after work today. I can definitely feel a difference – less energy, more muscle tightness, more difficulty sleeping. The brouhaha from the holidays has calmed down, so now it’s time to get back in the swing of things.

I thought I could switch my activities to evenings, when I had more open-ended time to relax and do some writing, but I am way too tired at the end of a long day to even thing straight. Making a nice supper and watching a movie is about all I’m good for.

You could say, “I leave it all on the field.”

Another week, another chance to start fresh – and get things done that I didn’t do last week.

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.
