Burnout & Brain Injury

I saw this posted on Instagram and last night as I was moody, having a horrible time understanding and navigating normal, simpler tasks and having 2 nights of not good sleep I was reminded of this post I saw on Instagram by joy.energy.time and I was like that’s it, burnout.

I reflected back on the last 3-4 days in my journal I keep and I had been reading a lot. I had done my peloton a couple of times, one a 45 min class and one a 30 minute. I went to bed on Tuesday at 11pm, normally I go at 9pm latest. I skipped a nap. I had soda one day. I have just exhausted my body and brain. All the things in the picture above I have been dealing with for the last 3 days.

Someday I will really learn to pace myself and not constantly overdo things because I think I can do it. Hopefully tonight I will get good sleep. Sleep is precious to me now and my body and brain so need it. Last night my husband said I was like a drunk person the way I was acting.

Nope, just a burnt out and exhausted person and a brain injury is not required for that, it just adds to it.

I am a TBI Survivor and woman who has been through a lot of good and bad. My goal by this blog is to share what I have learned and how life has happened for me and not to me. I have found purpose in it all and am here to share it. I am also sober and quitting drinking was the best choice for me. I will post about TBI, Brain Injury, life, travel, lessons learned and more. I am not a doctor or a nurse, I am a traumatic brain injury survivor who has lived 40 years of life and have an amazing mindset from it all. None of this is medical advice, that is what your doctor is for or 911 if you are having an true emergency and need help right away. I am here for community and to share all I have learned, you never know who it will help. Click on the white title of the blog post to read, just saying in case you might be confused like I am with all this 🤣
