Description

TBI is a much more manageable injury today than it has been in the past, but it remains a major health problem. As people with TBI continue to live longer and face the challenges of aging with TBI, it will be our duty to provide better education and long-term programs and services.

Now after turning 65 the other day (and being really tired most of the time), thought I'd write about aging and fatigue following TBI, based on my experience and hope this "info" may be helpful to others, patients, family and carers "out there"! * It's now nearly fifty years since that eventful day that changed my life. At that time little was known about brain injury and concussion. The fact that I survived after a serious closed head injury and am writing this is amazing in itself. My wife (who once worked as an intensive care nurse in London, said in those days not many people survived...and the reason that I did was because of my youth and fitness (at the time) My racing dream may have died that day, but I'm still chasing new dreams, new horizons in my 'little' life... https: //craigswritingjourney.wordpress.com/2014/11/27/climbing-mountains-chasing-dreams-2/ http: //inspiringvideo.wordpress.com/2014/11/08/climbing-mountains-chasing-dreams-2/ https: //awritersdreams.wordpress.com/2014/11/07/climbing-mountains-chasing-dreams/show more
