Thank you kindly for stopping by.
I was an ordinary person whose life indelibly changed in a split second after being rear-ended on the freeway years ago. I still bear body pain, and probably always will.
It is the daily struggle of unseen limitations due to Traumatic Brain Injury that is the most exhausting, frustrating, debilitating and trying part of life post-injury. I fight depression, pain, weakness, and fatigue on a daily, sometimes moment-by-moment, basis.
I often joke a person sang about leaving his heart in San Francisco, well, I left my brains out on the freeway! (Not all of course, the intellect is still there, the processing is slower and memory is like early Alzheimer’s.)
As of February 2009, I have sustained three diagnosed Brain Injuries. As research shows, and I can attest from experience and fighting to get better, the injuries are cumulative.
I am slowly re-posting my blog which, at the advice of those more experienced and insightful than I, was removed for legal proceedings. All old posts will be addressed first with “Back to the Beginning’, the post title and date originally posted.
I will also be adding new posts when I can. I am dreadfully ‘rusty’ from not writing for over a year and don’t always know how to express myself (word finding struggles).
It is my conscious intention this blog benefit all who visit. May this be a place of inspiration, education, ideas, healing, and, hopefully enjoy a laugh or two together along the way.
Please join me in this difficult life-changing journey with Traumatic Brain Injures I met ‘by accident’. Each day’s challenge is accepting the new kind of ‘normal’ in The Fight of My Life.
Blessings, Love & Peace,
(The name ResilientHeart is not one I came up with because that is how I am, I named myself that because that is how I have to be.)
