Hello everyone, glad to have found this forum. Being on my phone and typing text is still very trying to my senses. My 14 month old pushed our telescope that was on a tripod (not spread wide enough apparently) onto my head between my left ear and midline of my skull. Immediately my language was effected. I’ve had symptoms off and on and seemingly changing over the last 2.5 weeks. Yesterday I was irrationally irritable and over the top with my reactions. It was a first for my mood and personality to be effected.
Mantra ‘being better beings’ for my 3.5 year old daughter and I to make it through tough moments.
Any advice for someone early in their TBI recovery? I’ve got all the classics: dizzy, nausea, pain, sensitive to light and sound, extreme fatigue.
For sound we got Sony sound canceling headphones that are my oasis! Extreme fatigue is that if I don’t lie down during preceding symptoms, I will loose the ability to move and simply collapse unable to speak. Thankfully this has only happened once, my husband and was home and the kids were asleep. Well, once on the bathroom floor. Today I really pushed doing household chores and 5 minutes after lying down I felt paralyzed but was still conscious…like how people are if they wake and can’t move. It felt like 30 minutes at least and on the bathroom floor it was close to an hour. Also, anyone find relief with THC/CBD and dosing. There are a lot of articles but it is SO difficult to even look at a screen than even read something technical.
Nice to meet everyone and hope you are having a good ‘on’ day.
