“It would be great to have you back on the team”

So said the hiring manager for the position I applied for at my old company.

I concur – it would be great to be back on the team.

Thing is, there are two other hiring managers they have to deal with.

And that might be a problem.

Also, the money might be a problem. I don’t know if the position will pay well enough for me to do it.

This is a great problem to have — choosing between a job where I’m a valued team member (in an albeit unstable employment situation), along with the prospect of working with my old peeps, who I miss like crazy.

Both situations have advantages and disadvantages.

Of course, nothing is certain, and I haven’t heard back from anyone official, yet. But it is validating. And it tells me that whatever sins I committed back then, have been forgive. At least by one person.

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.
