“I do not bewail what I have lost, because I am at peace with myself…”

Living with Head/Brain Injury (TBI)

“I do not bewail what I have lost, because I am at peace with myself. I have fought a hard battle, given it my best, and won far more that I or anyone else ever thought I would.”

“Together, one mind, one life (one small step at a time), let’s see how many people (and lives) we can encourage, impact, empower, enrich, uplift and perhaps even inspire to reach their fullest potentials…and strive for and perhaps one sunny day even achieve their wildest dreams.”

My Daily Walk With Traumatic Brain Injury

Many times, you will have negative things and situations come into your life. You, can only do so much to try and fix the problem with what you have at your disposal and knowledge.

I, being guilty of this, tried to fix things dealing with my TBI on my own. After countless failed attempts, I found myself saying, “How am I going to get better from this mess”, and, “I don’t know what I am going to do?” Until Coming to “TRULY” accept this “new normal, new lifestyle”, and reaching out for help, I was not going anywhere. Acceptance and help is the key.

Even though we have trials and hard times where we must walk through the valley, before reaching the mountain top, we must believe and have Faith that God will see us through until the end. When we realize that we need to stop saying “

Left Neglect vs. Field Cut

read ,c (may give me some reasons on why I sometimes forget to take my meds… to try to make me “normal”??

The Transitional Learning Center's Blog

It is possible for multiple distinct symptoms of an acquired brain injury to present in remarkably similar fashions.  For instance, a brain-injured survivor’s failure to take medication could be due to a memory deficit leading that survivor to simply forget his or her medication or it could be due to an attention deficit leading the survivor to be too distracted to take the medication in question.  In each case the medication was missed, but for acutely separate reasons.  A similar issue comes to light in observation of post-injury visual deficits.  Did a survivor fail to notice information to his or her left due to left neglect or due to a field cut?

Let’s start off with outlining precisely what a field cut is, as it is the simpler of the two to understand.  Under the effects of a field cut, the survivor has actually permanently lost the ability to perceive a portion of the field of vision.  That area of the field formerly available has now…

A few years ago, I was a common criminal. At the time I was commuting 3-4 hours per day using public transportation. With all the time in the world to kill, it became an optimum opportunity to binge watch television shows and blow through movies. I devoured an obscene amount of media in those days.

Problem was, I did not ‘technically’ own all of the content I was watching ‘legally’. I used to justify my thievery because I had rules. I would only pirate movies and TV shows that I already had the capability of watching in other methods. Netflix, DVDs, various other streaming services that I had paid into but at the time did not allow offline viewing on a train.

So, the first year or two of my commute, I quietly downloaded media. I watched it once, then promptly deleted it as if my self restraint made it…
