I found myself so tired and overwhelmed today that by the time I got home from my day in Burlington, I was slurring my words, forgetting names of common objects and pretty much shut down.
The changes are mostly good - but it's all a lot to process and no matter how hard I try to form pithy, wise words right now, I simply cannot. This is humbling. As a professional writer/communicator, I've always been able to spit out words whether I feel like it or not. Will that ability ever return?
I logged on to Facebook today and found poet/writer Lousie Mathewson's status update. Louise calls TBI "transformed by injury."
And from here on out I shall refer to my TBI in that way too.
Sorry folks, I am not feeling very articulate tonight. I am transforming and I need to sleep.
I'm working on becoming a mid-life butterfy with TBI.
