This fact surprised me. I came across the following link which has a great list of other surprising facts:
10 Myths About Traumatic Brain Injury
My favorite is number "7. Recovery from TBI is a straightforward, quick process." The last line of this myth is "For many, recovery can be an ongoing process characterized by setbacks and frustrations." I absolutely relate to this!
I have good days and bad days. It's been 20 years post-injury for me, and for the past few years I can finally say that I have many more "good days" than "bad days."
Today was a bad day
Ugh. Scream. Cuss. Cry.
AND I did not sleep well! I slept for 6 hours (maybe 5.5) and then never really fell back into a deep sleep until my alarm went off at 7:45. I had to be at work early for a meeting (which I was late to), and then run some errands, meet my parents for lunch, and back to work for a birthday party. Anyway, sorry to say all those details, but, bottom-line is that I am soooo tired right now. I hate this feeling! This feeling of being so brain-tired that you don't have motivation to do anything. It's not because I don't want to do anything, it's because I can't! My brain just needs to rest, relaxation, and then everything will be better tomorrow!
At least I hope it will be better tomorrow.
