Due to my brain injury I have partial memory loss and have been investigating who I was and what I did. Because I often can’t remember yesterday this journal serves as my memory. I have decided to share my life with the world and hope to find kindred spirits. Despite being disabled I spend my time helping others in need. Bob Westbrook’s Blog is just as straightforward as his explanation for writing it.

I’d love to hear from you.

10/5/05 Wednesday – Feeling like I went through a wringer. Still slow but not as bad as yesterday. Maybe a five. Maybe worse. Still waking up and the headache is making sure I don’t forget it is there. Cherie was on her last minute rush again and was trying to take care of the bills that she should have done this weekend….. I guess I am at a 4 because typing is hard. I keep pushing the wrong buttons and am in slow motion.

Jeanie sent a message. It is the small things like a how ya doing that help so much. Helps fight the loneliness and depression.

Don’t even want to hear the easy listening music that is usually soothing, just as much quiet as I can get. Every noise is there even the hum of the computer and the traffic on the turnpike plus cars outside. The school bus sounded like a freight train. Great, I have all the symptoms of a hangover and I don’t drink except a glass of wine with dinner.

I am going to have to take something for the headache and eat something. Probably should take my second seizure pill. Yawning like crazy and I think I will take a short nap.

Thank you, Bob, for giving us a window into your life after a head injury.
