Back to the Beginning: Learning to Rest (posted Sept. 6, 2010)


Although the Type-A old personality of myself resists it, rest is a big part of life with Brain Injury, it is staggering how little it takes to get us tired!

I caught on I was heading into a crash the last couple of days so decided to designate today my ‘sacrifice’ day for rest. I took some Advil PM and headed back to bed this morning in hopes of rebooting my brain and granting myself a little more energy. I slept a little, not the restful type of sleep.

The world is very quiet here, summer has quickly departed (the *much* cooler weather, birds flocking together, the squirrels busily gathering food, and the change in the color of the deer.)

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
