BrokenBrilliant commented on joie hall's blog post I don't know how to handle this...
"Joie - That is incredibly intense. I'm sure you are asking yourself why you were brought back, if this is the kind of life you have. I'm not sure there is an answer for that, but you literally have a second chance to make some changes. I…"

BrokenBrilliant replied to Andrew Gray's discussion Fresh test
"Good luck - I have another test coming up in September, too. My neuropsych is splitting it into two four-hour sessions, so they can get real scores about how I really am - not just how I am when I'm tired. Is that something you could arrange,…"

BrokenBrilliant replied to David Reaves's discussion coping socially as an adult tbi 9yo
"I think people don't know how to react when "adults" get caught up in childish joy. I get really childish, when I discover something new, and people have made remarks to me about looking weird. Family members have looked at me like I…"

"P.S. I don't see info about the cost, and your Paypal link doesn't do anything - maybe fix that so people can order their own?"

BrokenBrilliant replied to robert thornton's discussion subluxation sling
"Thanks for sharing this. I have to be careful with my right shoulder or I can't use my right arm (old sports injuries) and it looks like the way the sling holds the shoulders is the same kind of posture I try to keep. Nice work!"

BrokenBrilliant commented on stephen d. cunningham's blog post Hellow everyone ON THE TBI Survivors Network
"Hi Stephen, Sorry to hear people are saying that. They say a lot of things, and a lot of what they say tells us more about what they think about themselves than how we really are. In the Service and outside, a lot of us get punished for our…"

BrokenBrilliant replied to Darcy Gilson's discussion Can't watch TV, fireplace, look at chandalier, anything bright and glittering or flashine hurts
"About that "most recovery happens in the first six months"... Most of my recovery happened after years -- of not knowing what the heck was going on with me. I still have light sensitivity issues. If I'm fatigued, you can bet I'll…"

This is a good day

I divided my weekend between doing this-n-that and moving at my own pace on Saturday, and working on Sunday. All day Sunday, I spent catching up on work that I had fallen behind on -- figuring out better ways of doing things, and just digging into what I've got going on.

I have a very busy job that tends to get the better of me. And I got tired of being behind on so many things. So, I took the day and caught up.

Now I'm ready to start the week with a cleaner slate than I had on…

I'd like to know if anyone also has dysautonomia spells after their TBI. Most doctors/ therapist think it's a foggy symptom I'm describing, but actually I encountered a therapist who agrees with even MTBI dysautonomia can be present and sometimes a…See More

"Keep your head up. It does get better over time, but you have to be patient and you have to work at strengthening your mind, while allowing (and I stress this) it to recover. I am five years removed from a moderate TBI and spinal cord…"
