Election Day today – Please Go Vote!

Go Vote!Election Day in the (sort of) United States of America.

At last. I can’t wait till this drawn-out process and media circus is over.

Good luck everyone – stay safe out there. Be true to yourself. Just be true.

And vote.

If you’re a USA citizen, you benefit tremendously from the amazing country we live in. Going to vote is a sign that you recognize the benefits and the risks of living in this amazing country of ours, and you’re willing to do your part.

Even if you don’t agree with everything the candidates stand for. Even if you would rather vote for someone else.

Go vote.

Write in the candidate of your choice, if you don’t like who’s on the ticket. But vote. It’s the responsible, adult thing to do. And countless Americans (and their families) have given their lives for your right to do so.

Don’t be a slacker. Don’t be a freeloader. Do your part.

Go vote.

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’m sure there are people who would take you up on it. I’m holding steady, here. I know my world may become less safe, as someone with a hidden disability, and I can expect less help from the People In Charge, but I was raised in an area that supports the current elected individual 99.9995%, so I know how to survive under socially challenging conditions. In fact, I know how to thrive. I’ll just need to use all the skills I developed in my childhood and youth.
