LIVING WITH LONG TERM BRAIN (HEAD) INJURY

INTRODUCTION

Here is some “info”, that I summarised from a radio interview with a UK film-maker by the name of William Fairbank (http://www.williamfairbank.com) talking about the “hidden handicap, the silent epidemic”. (“It could have been me speaking” (with regard to some aspects of the condition). . . but not nearly as eloquently* as William!)

*big word, eh!

*

Head injury has become a common problem throughout the world. Many of the more severe injuries are related to road traffic and horse riding accidents. As an example, in Great Britain about 15 patients every hour are admitted to hospital for observation, because of head injury and every 2 hours one of these will die. Head injury is implicated in 1 of all deaths and 50% OF ROAD TRAFFIC ACCIDENT DEATHS. Head injury is particularly prevalent in the age group between 10 and 25. CONCUSSION has occurred, whenever patients cannot remember the actual blow that made them unconscious.

WILLIAM FAIRBANKS Interview with Kathryn Ryan on National Radio (4th Feb 2010)

After sustaining a serious brain injury in a car accident 23 years ago William Fairbank is now devoted to helping medical professionals better understand the impact of brain injuries on a person’s life and personality. He now works as a sculptor and filmmaker. William Fairbank is currently seeking artists with brain injuries for his next documentary.

LONG-TERM BRAIN INJURY

“There is excellent medical care immediately post-trauma. However, there is little follow-up after the initial trauma. Every day I have to come to terms with my brain injury, to learn. I don’t handle interruptions. It’s like being in a movie. Each person with a brain injury is different…and is affected in different ways. I do one thing at a time – break into little tasks. I really live in the present. No-one ever explained to me how to cope, how to deal with everyday living. I had to learn strategies for myself.

Difficulties in ‘making connections’:

I can only handle “one-on-one” situations. I can’t hold two thoughts in my mind at the same time. A ringing phone will interrupt my thought and sequence. I easily lose the ‘flow’ of the task I was engaged in. Then I have difficulty wondering what to do next! I have to clear clutter to simplify my life. Get easily ‘thrown’ Head injured people are often self absorbed. (Probably helps them cope with life through focussing??)

NB

All brain injuries are different. Everyone with a head injury is affected differently.

No-one can understand my problems, because I appear to be a lucid, intelligent man. I’m fine here now doing ONE thing.

I want to contact artists: musicians, sculptors, poets, writers who have had a brain injury. So many people who have suffered a head injury write and draw; they channel it into some form of art.

Doctors don’t understand brain injury and especially the effects, the cognitive difficulties people have; because the effects are so subtle (yet can have a huge effect on their lives). Head injury acts as a filter, a “block”. It’s such a fine-line brain-injured people have compared with normal-thinking people.

I can’t visualise and have big problems with my short-term memory. It can be so FRUSTRATING (GRRRR) and often leads to mood swings and severe emotional problems.

Craig’s Thoughts (final)

Those effects above can be overcome  with application, focus, single-mindedness and persistence.

However my greatest problem which has shaped much of my life is my chronic fatigue + continuously getting muddled, like Frank Spencer!

Finally…

“Still don’t let what you can’t do, interfere with what you CAN do (best).”

The important thing in life is not to triumph but to compete…it’s not victory but combat…not to have vanquished but to have fought well…not winning but taking part.”
― Pierre de Coubertin (French Educator, primarily responsible for the revival of the Olympic Games in 1894. 1863-1937)

Don’t see head injury as a ‘handicap’, but just another challenge to live with, work around and overcome in the amazing journey of life.

With knowledge comes understanding and acceptance.

Shared by “information distributer and incorrigible encourager” craig

“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.”

― Pierre de Coubertin (French Educator, primarily responsible for the revival of the Olympic Games in 1894. 1863-1937)

PS: To end off, enjoy these thoughts…

“We have it within; but we get it all from without. There is a well-spring of strength, wisdom, courage and great imagination within each one of us; but once we draw on this truth, it gets watered from without, by a Higher Source – the Source of Life and Love, which is God, the very Ground of our Being.”

“When you can see no light at the end of the tunnel, light your own candle and let your light illuminate the world, like the radiance from a window at midnight.”

from  www.itsalwaysdarkestbeforethedawn.wordpress.com

That’s a metaphor, BTW”

“The task ahead of you can always be overcome by the power within you…and the seemingly difficult path ahead of you is never as steep with the great spirit that lies within you.”

“When the world is filled with love, people’s hearts are overflowing with hope.”
– craig

About craig lock

from http://www.selfgrowth.com/experts/craig_lock.html About the Author Craig has a 'passion' for writing books that tell stories about people doing positive things in this often so hard, sometimes unkind world, occasionally cruel, yet always amazing world - true stories that leave the reader feeling uplifted, empowered and hopefully even inspired. https://www.createspace.com/3779691/ and http://www.amazon.com/-/e/B005GGMAW4 Craig Lock loves to encourage and empower people to be the best they can possibly be, and to create what they want in life. Craig has learnt plenty from the "school of life" (still "battered and bruised") and also from a few "hard knocks on the head". He is an extensive world traveller (on a "shoestring budget") and failed professional emigrater who has spent most of his life’s savings on airfares. He is still sliding down the razor blade of life on the beautiful undiscovered island that is New Zealand, somewhere near the bottom (rude!) of the world near Antarctica. There he talks to the 60 million sheep! Craig has been involved in the corporate world (life assurance) for over twenty years in South Africa, Australia and New Zealand. However, through a strange set of circumstances and finding himself in a small town near the bottom of the world ...and with nothing else to do, he started writing. That was five years ago. Five published books later and having written another twenty manuscripts (on widely differing subjects - well what else is there to do here?)... this is where Craig is in the "journey/adventure" that is life. Craig has taught at the local Polytechnic, as well as running a successful creative writing course (not teaching sheep!). He was the author of (as far as we know) the first creative writing course on the internet Craig has many varied interests and passions. He is particularly interested in the field of psychology – studying the human mind and what makes different people "tick-tock grandfather clock". He is fascinated by the "overlap between psychology and the dimension of spirituality". One of his missions in life is helping people make the most of their hidden potential and so finding their niche in life... so that they are happy. Craig’s various books probably tell more about his rather "eventful" life best (no one could believe it!). He writes books with serious messages and themes, then as a contrast "rather crazy, wacky stuff"…to keep him sane here. As an ‘anonymouse’ person wrote: "All of us are born mad; some of us remain so." Well nothing else much happens in quiet provincial New Zealand, other than headlines like "Golf Ball Thrown at Policeman" and "Beach Toilet Closed for Season.".

    “Aim at the stars and you may reach the moon.”

    “If a man is called to be a street-sweeper,

    here lived a great street sweeper
    who did his job well.”

    Firstly, thanks for the feedback to you all, and this article and web site has really “seemed to have struck a chord” with so many of you “out there in cyberspace.”. However, it also means that I’m being swamped by “spam/thanks mail”

    I put most of my focus into my books, so have no idea how to add sound, video, etc to the blog…to make it better.
    * please feel free to link to the web site or my various other WordPress blogs athttp://craigsblogs.wordpress.com/2013/09/28/craigs-blogs-and-writings/ should you wish, but I have no time to do links
    * You may not believe this, but I’m a “total non-techno”, so know, NOTHING about web site design, feeds, hosts, servers, etc. And lay-out is not one of my strong points. I just write and posted on the blog! How I got am where I am is a “miracle” . And no one would believe the story (only those who have true faith)! BELIEVE it (first) … then you’ll see it!

    tips for brand new aspiring bloggers. Appreciate it!

      Hi

      To answer a few questions (I’m “snowed under”, so sorry, don’t have resources as a “one man band” to answer you individually on my many many blogs http://craigsblogs.wordpress.com/2013/09/28/craigs-blogs-and-writings/

      * this and my various other blogs cost NOTHING, but time and energy

      * I get really really fatigued. So don’t have time to look at other web sites or comment on design (anyway I know nothing about that). Firstly, to the few (.001%??) who may be complaining about the occasional “spelling mistake” (have you heard of British English??), or want more pictures, I don’t have time…and “don’t major in minor details”- I just write.
      Perhaps ”man invented language in order to satisfy his need to complain.”
      – Canadian linguist Steven Pinker

      * All my articles may be freely reproduced (sorry don’t have time write for other websites), as I’m busy writing a few books at the moment
      I put most of my focus into my books, so have no idea how to add sound, video, etc to the blog…to make it better.
      …but am learning “on the go”

      * please feel free to link to the web site or my various other WordPress blogs at http://craigsblogs.wordpress.com/2013/09/28/craigs-blogs-and-writings/
      should you wish, but I have no time to return links.

      * You may not believe this, but I’m a “total non-techno”, so know, NOTHING about web site design, browser problems, feeds, hosts, servers, overlapping, etc. And lay-out is not one of my strong points. I just write and post on the blog…impulsively! How I got am where I am is a “miracle” . And no one would believe the story (only those who have true faith)! BELIEVE it (first) … then you’ll see it!
      “Believing is seeing.”
      (BEFORE the event)

      * I don’t have a newsletter to subscribe to (Can I end a sentence with a “preppie”?).

      * Will try to post articles from time to time, but all my writings are available at http://www.selfgrowth.com/articles/user/15565 and http://www.ideamarketers.com/library/profile.cfm?writerid=981

      (Personal growth, self help, writing, internet marketing, spiritual, ‘spiritual writings’ (how ‘airey-fairey’), words of inspiration. Please feel free to use

      * Finally, if you want to start a blog and want some tips, you may find my articles on writing at http://www.craigswritingarticles.wordpress.com

      helpful If I could put up a blog, then ANYONE can!

      Just go for it and good luck

      thanks for the understanding and I DO really appreciate your “writing in”

      “When (or if ever) you arrive in heaven, let faith, hope and love be the wings that carried you there.”

      – as adapted from the inspiring words of Jonathan Edwards, former minister in New England, Massachusetts

      “The Greatest Race: Living by (with) faith, hope and love is the highest podium any person can reach, God’s podium that anyone stand on.”
      – c

      from http://www.sharefaith.wordpress.com

      “Having pursued the goals, the dreams set before us and run the race with persistence and endurance, after giving it all. Then one day standing on the summit of life, breathing in the pure sweet oxygen of achievement, totally satisfied in running the greatest race, the race of life one that ANYONE can run and win.”

      Again…“Thanks for the thanks

      Instead of trying to reply to each one of you, I’ll just keep on writing
      “If the doctor told me I had six minutes to live, I’d type a little faster.”
