When Will I Learn?

I woke up today. I felt normal TBI tired. I am a little sore from my workout yesterday. My husband went and got me a coffee. But I noticed I am tired and having issues, honestly I’m really struggling today. Struggling to do simple things.

I can’t figure out how to work the TV, just trying to relax and do nothing you at because I’m exhausted.

I dropped my almost full coffee on the ground, my husband had to help clean it up.

Then I couldn’t figure out the TV again, help! Thank gosh he’s working from home.

My brain just does not want to work today. I’m getting frustrated and angry.

I’m not being the nicest person.

The only thing I can think of is when I look at my journal and my peloton app, I can see all I have done and see clearly why I am falling apart.

Too much exercise, too much commuting via the bus and walking for an appointment yesterday, I have done a lot of house work at home over the last 2 days plus a dog walk. And my husband has told me not to do it all, but I did it anyway.

This is life. My life of a brain injury. Yes, I can do it and am so thankful for that, but when I do too much this is what happens. I can’t think and do things that should be normal and easy, I can’t understand things written or told to me. I didn’t shower yesterday and sadly don’t want to today because that is time and energy and I’m freaking wiped.

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.
