I’ve been quiet here – for many good reasons

lake-clarityJust a note to all of you, that I’ve been quiet lately, because I’m actually living my life and taking care of business. Things that used to baffle and stump me are now becoming quite clear. And I’m better able to get things done around the house and out in the world, than probably ever before.

I can’t account for the change… other than maybe this is what happens after you’ve had enough active TBI recovery time and you keep hacking away at things till they start to make sense.

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. I hear you. I think it’s all how we deal, when your paying attention & making proactive changes. You do some organising, then some ‘Living’ and take time out which gives you something to write about. It’s all a careful balance. You have found the right balance. You have a good blog to follow. Cheers,H
