Back to the Beginning: Short Note about Brain Overload (posted Sept. 30, 2008)

With a Brain Injury comes lessened stamina, fatigue, and well, it’s just easy to overdo it.

In Brain Injury support group, we talk about having a ‘brain budget’. Prior to our injuries, none of us had to ever budget our energies, we did what we wanted when we wanted, went where we wanted when we wanted, fatigue was not an issue.

When you’re in flight of fight mode constantly, you can guarantee some symptoms may be pronounced, migraines occur, sleeplessness is common, as is fighting the depression.  This has been my experience.

TBI x3, that's me! If you had a Traumatic Brain Injury (or Injuries!) and knew you might not remember dates, events, people, etc., would you live each day differently? Would you give more, forgive more, heal more? I am. The statistics for me developing Dementia or Alzheimer's is a high possibility - one, because of the TBIs, and two - because I'm genetically predisposed. Come with me as this present moment is all we know we have... Wishing you all the best - today & always. Blessings, Love & Peace, RH
