I did miss that, thanks.
I had no idea about march being dedicated to mushy brains but I guess it aligns well with St Patrick's Day.
Now, if only I could have a drink without really messing myself up.
I'm making progress! I want to send a huge thank you out to everyone here and in meatspace that have gone out of their way to help me.
Like the old guy line goes (and twisted for my needs) "I'm fine from afar but I'm far from fine"
Happy belated! I'm a year behind you.....and so glad to hear things are going well!!! Your daughter sounds like a breath of fresh air for you and a very strong person....You're a damn lucky dad! Congrats on your first few days at work being successful! Keep on keeping on.....
Well happy birthday to you too!
What you were saying almost didn't register, but I came back
Wow, I just read the whole thing in a few sittings. I didn't see the wife thing coming. I hope and pray you are heading up from here. Take it slow and have paitence with your body. I am glad you are able to stay connected with your daughter.
Everyone eventually does....
Work is kicking my ass mentally. Yesterday I went to sleep at 9pm and didn't get up until 545am. Normally I'm 11-3/4
Neuropsychological Assessment tomorrow at 830am. That's a messed up time for me to get to Oakland and not be frazzled to start with.
I hope it's not as painful as last time.
Happy belated and congrats on the gig. I’m glad to hear things are looking up.
I hope the assessment went well. As to work, getting back into the swing of things like football in school or construction after a layoff have the same affect on people.
Just means that you are getting back into shape mentally.
Something got mixed up between court and the doctor and I had an exam by a neurologist..
She made me look in the light thing, touch my nose, bend different ways and then she got out the torture implements and tested for sensation loss.
Waste of time I think because court wanted the assessment.
Oh well, at least I got back to work early and work is kicking my ass but it feels good.
Good for you!! “Kickin my ass but it feels good” HELL YEAH!!! Your a good man! Cheers!
So, How are you doing?
Dammit, that is me now!
I'm doing pretty okay... I sleep a lot when not working, started trying to work out again but not consistent yet due to pain and my memory is still crap. BUT, I went to a large conference this week for one day and, for the most part, I did well. I had very little "panic" type experiences and the biggest issue I did have was hearing because I can't tune out other conversations/noises. Pain settled in mid-day but oddly, caffeine (mass quantities) seemed to keep some of it at bay. That was Wednesday and everything still hurts and I'm still tired, but I couldn't have done this even 6 months ago.
how you doin?
Thanks for the update. Something I thought of that may be worth looking into...
My 13yo daughter has some cognitive learning challenges (slow processing), and we have found a program that is making a drastic improvement. I would not be surprised if it may help with some aspects of TBI, as essentially the program is "re-wiring" her brain to deal with her challenges. The program is called H.E.L.P. and has been around for 35 yrs here in the Portland area. Feel free to PM me you have questions or want more info. The website is a bit lacking...
Cool, I'll check out the website this afternoon. Thank you!
"how you doin? "
Me? I can't complain. Things could be better, but I also know they could be a hell of a lot worse.
So, I guess I will settle for content. I know, others would be grateful to achieve that, so I have to admit that I have been blessed.
The weather has finally broke. I was able to ride into December, but mid January through mid March, it was just too much sloppy snow for the roads to dry out.
I was out on my oldest sons' bike for a shake down ride, then my bike, the other day. Between the two, I had about an hour and a half of riding time.
Baby sitting the grandson and dog this weekend. Could have rode, but pushing the stroller and walking the dog felt real.
I am glad to see you are making progress with your challenges.
Just as a side note, I felt more alive and happy when I was working two jobs and the kids were still at home.
You have a cool daughter, so you are also blessed.
Glad you're alive brother, hang in there!
@trc.rhubarb hope things are still moving in a good direction.
Plugging away but the stress of work and such is taking its toll.
Pretty much work, sleep, repeat.
Physical health is getting worse and mental is holding so far.
Doing 4th grade math (word problems) today highlighted my lack of reading comprehension but I've got friends who can set me straight!
I'm holding in there, not riding much, not doing much, but I'm working and getting back into the world. Maybe soon, I can start some proper medical care.
Oh and damn, if living on my own hasn't made all my clothes shrink... I wish I could pass it off as me doing a bad job at laundry but it seems to be mah pie hole that's to blame
Hang in there Brother! Cheers!
