Brain injury awareness month – all month long


It’s brain injury awareness month again. Last year, I think I didn’t even realize it until the end of March, so I’m ahead of the game, this year.

For the next 31 days, I’ll be re-posting from my past writing. I’ve been at this brain injury blogging since the end of 2007, so there are a lot of posts that are buried in the “archives” which I still think back to, and they might be useful for others, as well.

I want to concentrate less on my own current issues, and more on traumatic brain injury in general. Frankly, I get tired of listening to myself go on about my life. Everything is constantly changing and shifting in my life, so it’s almost no use in trying to keep up with it all and process it all.

I just have to hang on… and keep a level head, as I roll with the changes.

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.
