Rest day – re-set day

laptop with blank notebook and pen on a desk
Today I move at my own pace – blank slate

I’m working from home today – woot woot!

This will give me time to step back and really think about my work, as well as my future. I need to focus on the activities which are directly related to my ongoing career, and not get pulled off-track by distractions or busy-work.

I get into busy-work situations when I am tired and am more distractable. It makes me crazy… and it’s an ongoing challenge. But at least I’m aware.

And I can take Fridays to re-set my attention on the things that mean the most to me and will move me forward, both now and in the future. I am home, so I can take a nap in the afternoon — use that extra hour I save from not commuting. And then my weekend is much, much better, because I’m not wiped out from a non-stop 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.
