Hello, and let me welcome you to a windy and cloudy Thursday. It’s pretty windy here, anyway. How is the weather where you are? Let me know, okay?
I titled this post today REALLY IS THURSDAY, because I have been questioning this all day, ever since I got up this morning. This is not a new thing. Every since my TBI, I have been confused about dates and times. I have gotten a lot better over the years, but it still happens. It’s not because I’m not “paying attention” or “I don’t really care,” that’s just how it goes some days. I think of it as a little “brain hiccup.” I’ll be able to tell you in just a few minutes, but it seems to me that my brain is just giving me a pleasant reminder that it is still injured. My brain can eventually figure out the date and time, but just right away. Is my brain trying to sabotage and self-destruct my snail-like recovery? Or is it trying to remind me that “slow and steady” wins the race? I think that moving forward with the second statement is what really works for me. I have been exercising on a regular basis, but I don’t think I will be signing up for any marathons (or half-marathons, for that matter) this weekend. I have new and different priorities now.
I am trying to move forward and get off the guilt train. I was just printing out some documents on our printer, and I ran out of paper. I didn’t “run out of paper” because I have a traumatic brain injury. I ran out of paper because—————-I just ran out of paper. Okay? Okay! That’s just the way it goes. I’m learning to be okay with that. Are you okay with that? Wonderful! God bless you and your families and please have a blessed and peaceful day!
