I checked my site stats this morning — since I started this blog, WordPress has recorded 98,278 views, all-time. Getting towards 100,000 — cool. I’m not sure what it is with us humans and round numbers, but it feels momentous. And the thought that people have looked at this site 100,000 times is pretty gratifying. So, thank you for your support.

I checked the search terms for the past week, and I pulled out all the ones that relate specifically to TBI/head injury/concussion. Here they are — 101 search terms, with quick responses.

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.
