The day after

We’re going to be fine. We always are.

In the aftermath of every election, there’s a side that says we’re Doomed!

And there’s a side that jumps for joy.

We seem to take turns.

We’re going to be fine. We always are.

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 don’t think that can be true this time. Two things are going to happen. Either people are going to be very disappointed, or some people are going to be very hurt from a financial and health perspective. Probably both.

  2. You know, I agree. I also think that people are going to have to dig deep within themselves to find a way through. It can be done.

    Of course, there are the extremely vulnerable folks in our society — but it’s up to those of us who are on their side to take up for them. We need to do that. It’s not easy, and it’s not pleasant, but it needs to be done. Enough taking positive change for granted. We have to work for everything we’ve got.
