Yes it has almost been a year since I took fingers to a keyboard and wrote in this blog. I wanted to write but I also wanted to take the time to allow myself to recover. Well of course TBI recovery does not come over night or in the first year or so. You and your family can read the words but to fully understand what recovery means is to actually be apart of the snails pace, accept feelings of anger and frustration, accept the long declines and plateaus and celebrate the upswings!
Here is a letter I wrote to someone who is doing a photo project on brain injury and recovery:
I admit that with my lack memory unless I am cued, I did forget about this blog at times but then I would have fleeting moments where I wanted to write but I knew I couldn’t. I hope to write in short spurts more often. Out for now as I am creating a larger headache & vision going – gotta listen to the signs!
