March is Brain Injury Awareness  Month!
     So why do I care??? Who cares? Why should you care???
Well pictures speak louder than words, see for yourself!
Here are just two of my helmets…
Note the left side of motorcycle helmet and front of equestrian lid…(the irregularly shaped hole on left is NOT supposed to be there, it could have been in my skull!)
I have two more from childhood, those pretty black velvet riding helmets used by people like Christopher Reeve who get their kicks flying over jumps on a 1500lb. animal that has a mind of its own…
Then when your bratty horse refuses to jump (I have well-behaved trusty steeds now), an epic launch occurs, propelling you torpedo-like into mid-air flight which often results in flattening the cute little nob on top of the helmet. I wonder if that’s why they put it there? Like an indicator it’s time to buy a new one?
I DID BUY A NEW HELMET last week in honor of National Brain Injury Awareness Month, retiring the old lid to stockpile of relics, archiving my TBI’s!
Speaking of archives…being an aspiring neuroscientist, I wanted to find out the extent of damage to my noggin. After a couple thousand dollars, an hour of data collection strung up to 19 electrodes, and weeks of post processing, here is just one page of my QEEG results (as seen on my computer screen):
Note how the areas with issues correspond to the dings on my helmets that resulted in a 150% increase in the ADHD index compared to norms.
That means I’m special, LOL! This evaluation was done after a year of neurofeedback training, folks, but at least I’m functioning off meds. Can you imagine what it might have looked like before? And I’ve made a lot of progress since (stay tuned for updated report).
Do you have any of these symptoms?
Symptoms of TBI usually fall into four categories:


Physical Emotional/
Difficulty thinking clearly Headache
Fuzzy or blurry vision
Irritability Sleeping more than usual
Feeling slowed down Nausea or vomiting
(early on)
Sadness Sleep less than usual
Difficulty concentrating Sensitivity to noise or light
Balance problems
More emotional Trouble falling asleep
Difficulty remembering new information Feeling tired, having no energy Nervousness or anxiety
***Some of these symptoms may appear right away, while others may not be noticed for days or months after the injury, or until the person starts resuming their everyday life and more demands are placed upon them.
