This is my very first post! I am excited to use blogging as a platform to share practical information regarding Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) wellness and life balance.
When I was younger, I loved to journal- as time went on, life took off (so did technology!) and I developed many hobbies and interests and journaling faded away. While I do not intend to use blogging as my personal journal, parts of me may come through from time to time.
I live in Alaska, so I will often reference Alaska weather and wildlife….if you live in a different climate/geographic region please swap these elements for what makes sense for your area!
You may find some of my writing to come across as remedial and/or patronizing. I have a passion for working with brain injury survivors who benefit from reminders and simple check-lists. I myself am a brain injury survivor and have intimate knowledge of the healing process. Trying something different in my day (even if I have done it many times pre-brain injury) became such a challenge, I want to share the tips and suggestions that helped me. So, I am not intending to break my suggestions down so simply to come across as an expert, nor making an assumption that one does not know how to bundle-up, I am attempting to include those who are coping with a foggy brain and/or recovering from a brain injury and can benefit from simple steps.
The brain is pretty fascinating- one of my goals is to add a small section “Functions of the Brain Required:” Here I will highlight what part of the brain humans rely upon to execute the topic of discussion. Keep an eye out for this feature!
Every person is different and each brain injury is different- there are also some common issues with brain injury, please take in what you are drawn to and leave the rest 🙂
I am finding blogging to be a fulfilling outlet (similar to journaling) as I set up my blog posts! I am honored you are taking the time to stop by and read what I have to say. (Keep an eye out for a post about journaling)!
*In case you are curious, for now I batch post monthly!
I would like to take a moment to thank my husband for being my devoted blog editor- he helps my writing come across more clearly. xo
I am a therapist in Anchorage, Alaska. You can learn more about me at my website.
