Thanks for the follow and all the best with your blog, David

Through David's Eyes

Sensory over stimulation or Flooding occurs after brain injury because the brain’s ‘filters’ no longer work properly. It is an exhaustive situation if more pieces of information or stimuli are received than  the brain can handle. A stimulus is information that we perceive through our senses; see, hear, smell, taste, touch (external stimuli) or through our mind or our body / proprioception (internal stimuli).

In December of 2017, I suffered another tonic-clonic seizure and sustained a mild TBI. I’ve had several concussions over the years as well. I now find myself struggling with many of what one would consider, basic things. This has led me to endless web searches, group chats, etc.. The (Braininjury explanation) website is an absolutely awesome resource that I highly recommend.

If you’re the one with a brain injury, a professional or a caregiver – this is the place for you. Any…

 This is just a quick draft that I’ll work on and tidy up (removing all the repetitions) in hospital  next week. Nothing to worry about (just a minor op – a brain transplant and recondition + a dollop of polyfilla will fix everything). Worry more that the local hospital here in “Sleepy Hollow” will still be standing after my visit.

COMMUNICATION DISORDERS AFTER A BRAIN INJURY

A brain injury can affect our communication abilities by impairing hearing, the muscle movements of speech, or the cognitive processes that turn our thoughts into words.

Communication problems vary, depending on an individual’s personality, pre-injury abilities, and the severity of the brain damage. Typical effects may include:

  • slow or slurred speech
  • difficulty swallowing
  • drooling or a nasal tone
  • problems with finding the right words
  • trouble with understanding others
  • see

“Success to others may be apparent in what you DO; but significance, meaning and purpose lies, then reveals itself in what you ARE and BECOME down the ‘river of life’ – how and the spirit with which you face, then overcome the daily obstacles, the frequent trials and tribulations along the often rocky path-way of life’s magical and mysterious journey.Light your path brightly.”

What Does it Feel Like to be Brain Damaged?

https://livingwithheadinjury.wordpress.com/…/what-does-it-feel-like-to-be-brain-dama..

In brief then, I have found that internal and external factors must mesh smoothly in order for the brain damaged person to reach their fullest potential and cope with his/her disabilities. An accurate diagnosis of the deficits must be made and must be understood and accepted by the individual and by those closely involved with their rehabilitation. The individual and family must be motivated to pursue the fullest development of his/her potential. Challenges and responsibilities must be provided as he/she progresses, permitting a growing sense of self-worth and involvement in the real world. Environment at home and at school or work must be structured to maximize learning.
One last word. No one really knows just how great an individual’s potential is.
