What do you find most difficult living with a brain injury
Going to work every day and dealing with chronic migraines because I'm not the type of person who calls in sick, nor do I have the type of job where I can call in sick easily, plus I never had to deal with headaches before my injury. That, and I'm suddenly disorganized, forgetful, and too tired to care. AND I'M IN PAIN. Mostly, I'm overwhelmed with it all.

How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site. Could you please get back to me on my email: email@example.com for the full details.
Hi, Ginny. I can really relate to how disabling headaches can be after a TBI and how much harder it can be to think and work though pain. I',also, can really relate to not wanting to take meds for pain, etc. I huge turning point for me was working with an OT who has specialization in cranio-sacral therapy, TMJ dysfunction, mysofascial release, and trigger point work. She has made a huge difference in decreasing the intensity of my headaches, and in my overall pain management and functioning. It may be well worth your efforts to find someone with those skills where you are ... ah, Spokane! A fellow Wasingtonian! ;-) Good luck and take care, Ginny! ~ Kathie
