Axonal Brain Injury (diffuse)

Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI

Diffuse axonal injury occurs in about half of all severe head traumas, making it one of the most common traumatic brain injuries.

Essentially that is where and number of pathways in the brain have been disrupted meaning the signals are either lost or they must find a longer alternative route. These can be seen in road traffic accident causalities (such as my case) due to the rotational forces in a  heavy collision.

“It’s Not the Mountain We Conquer, but Ourselves”

“The greatest mountain we need to climb lies in our our own minds”. It’s not the highest mountain that we conquer, but ourselves, our own mentality. Overcoming perceived limits to reach (attain) the pinnacle of our own minds.”

You may suffer many defeats in this life, but you will not be defeated.

Defeat is just a state of mind…and like failure is only temporary, unless its accepted as being so in the mind!

“Man is mind

and evermore he takes the tool of thought
and, shaping what he wills,
brings forth a thousand joys,
a thousand ills.
He thinks in secret
and it comes to pass –
Environment is but his looking glass.”

Thanks so much for sharing with me, dad

Living with Head/Brain Injury (TBI)

Making a cup(s) of tea is a common assessment of cognitive ability, as it’s something we do so often and naturally we don’t put much conscious thought into it. But at the same time dealing with boiling water and electricity is a hazard.
 She told me to make a white tea with no sugar, and a black tea with one sugar. I thought this was going to be easy. I part filled the cordless kettle with some water and put it back on its base and pushed the switch. Or so I thought…

 Following instructions (and processing information) …then DOING!
And fifty years later I still have difficulty!
Any hope? No wonder I stick to writing, rather than making tea for more than one person, so my friends do it for “helpless harry”!
