Back to the Beginning: TBI Support Group Wednesday (posted Mar. 29, 2009)


Hi everyone,

I am behind on posts, okay, actually, I’m behind on everything now.

At support group we watched the DVD “Every 21 Seconds or Why I Scream at the Refrigerator”. It was quite good, I do wish I absorbed more of it than I did, maybe some other time I can watch it again.

An interesting article about the DVD, the filmmaker lives with TBI:

I noticed my balance off, leaned against the wall or the back of my chair for support. Big difference from the last time at group.

It was tough sharing candidly with a couple members I’d been hit again. I said I guess this is just my lot in life. I get the distinct idea this is the school of learning God wants me in.

After the DVD one of the members approached me. He said it’d been a while seen he’d seen me at “Shoporama”. I didn’t remember. I was unable to engage so just sat down exhausted.

Everything takes much more energy now. Back to square one, resting before going to an appointment or group like this, resting after.

Things take longer too. Getting reports done, taking far more breaks far more frequently than before. I struggle to put things in the right spaces, finding I’m getting things backwards, forgetting whole sections, easily confused by what I was able to do before, all taking much longer, and oddly confused by math again.

Will update more after rest.

About Resilient Heart

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
