This is an extension of the piece I wrote years ago (January, 2011), called “After concussion – you’re not stupid, it just feels that way“. I’m writing this after seeing a physiatrist for a follow-up appointment regarding neck & shoulder … Continue reading →
I’m pretty much of a Type A person — although my competitive streak targets myself, rather than others. Wait, no… I do instinctively compete against others, as well. I must admit, I’m happiest when I’m Alpha. This is not in … Continue reading →
