Grieving is not Linear
Wednesday, April 01, 2020      0 comments

Spent all morning trying to do something simple my spare child wanted but didn’t directly ask for because she doesn’t want to push me. She just mentioned it would be awesome and left it there. I didn’t promise and have been putting it off. It to... Read more
Milestone and Social Distance Thoughts
Tuesday, March 17, 2020      0 comments

Today has been a year since my most recent concussion. In that time I’ve seen my GP three times, one (inCREdibly unhelpful and condescending) ophthalmologist, and, as of less than 2 weeks ago, one neurologist. It’s a rainy day. My favorite. My... Read more
"You Look Fine" and The Fitting Room
Monday, March 02, 2020      2 comments

A friend asked me to post. I put up things saying what concussion/brain injury can look like and how it’s different from person to person and from injury to injury. Then sometimes I post how I am doing on a particularly good or bad day. She wa... Read more

Learning to Communicate
Monday, January 13, 2020      1 comments

I took four years of French in high school. Our teacher, a little red-headed Israeli-American who spoke roughly a dozen languages, asked me once, "When learning a language, what are the first words and phrases you should learn." I thought I... Read more

Checking in. Not as often as I'd like but I'm doing it. Bent my glasses today and can't wear them so bear with me. Any typos spellcheck misses will likely be missed altogether. I had nearly three days of awesome. I woke up a few days a... Read more

Broken Brain Days
Wednesday, September 11, 2019      2 comments

The tournament on Saturday...the grocery store on Sunday. Such little things I used to take for granted. Now I'm still feeling a setback in heightened symptoms on Wednesday! I was two Tylenol in before 11am! Those who know me well know that ... Read more
A Good but Busy Week
Sunday, September 08, 2019      2 comments

So done today. In spite of all the good things going on in my life right now: Elsa settling well into HS and rocking it on the volleyball court and FINALLY getting orthotics for horrifically overprinted ankles at 14, my relationship with hubby ... Read more
Trying to Balance on So Many Levels.

Okedoke. Time for a check in. Most of this is just trying to keep track of what I'm feeling when. So much is focused on balance right now. So many types of balance to, well, balance. Yes, some of it is the basic physical type. I have... Read more
"Look on the bright side." ≠ "There is no dark side"
Thursday, August 15, 2019      1 comments

Sorry if this comes off catty. It is a frustration point. I am so tired of being told I'm too negative all the time for talking about the struggles I'm facing. Is a good chunk of what I talk about, online and off, to do with my TBIs and ch... Read more
