Understanding Me

Understanding Me

 

A TBI is a difficult injury to overcome both for the injured and for the loved ones. I would say in the last year I have come a long way. I personally thought after two odd years after my accidentI had not changed or really suffered from the mincing of my brain.

I thought the only injury I had sustained from my TBI was once a week or so I will experience a headache delivered by the devil himself. The next day there is not much memory of the devils blow. I guess it is payback for my now and then mischievous past.

People I see after a few months comment how better I am. ‘BETTER’ umm yes I say thanks but better is not the case I am who I am. I have become more aware of me and of how I get through the days the little bits-the cognitive issues this is my understanding of ‘BETTER’.

Today I decided to Google TBI to perhaps understand me a little more or to understand the effects a TBI has on one. I do know that every TBI is different (no two alike). As I read the many specialists reports I recognise my affected areas after reading many reports I read a list of the affects this injury has on one.

In a general summary of brain injuries there are a number of changes one will have some are greater than others and every person may be affected differently. The more areas affected generally is related to a greater blow or more severe injury to the brain.

I read the list and scroll down once I recognise an item I write it down. Once I complete the list I count the effects I have sustained. A total of 34 and others not on this list I read this is about 80% of this list. I now know why most of the specialists i have seen tell me i had a severe blow to my brain. According to the scans etc they are quite amazed at my recovery. Many of them say it is a never give up attitude and my fighting spirit.

Wow I think really these injuries i have sustained cannot be right but the more I think about it the more I am agreeing. I now can understand the pressure I place on my Ange and others also my atom bomb theory makes sense. I do know I have changed and I do know I have to relearn basic cognitive issues. This is okay I will relearn life I will make mistakes as we all do and I will try to understand the mistakes I make.

I can relearn about life the way I want to and in an instant when I do not understand or know the answer my life professor is always there he will help me instantly he will have many answers.

Professor Google of course!

Please remember a small donation from many will go a long way towards my TBI awareness campaign.
