Life Curve: TBI
Sunday, July 03, 2016
So I was sitting at a red light waiting for it to change on March 31 when a woman decided to commit suicide by vehicle and crossed two lanes of heavy oncoming traffic to make a left turn.
[I'm the one in the back]
Got hit just in front of the driver door which is probably why I am still alive. The seat belt kept my body in place. Unfortunately it didn't do the same for my brain.
The first five weeks was one long headache. I thought the memory loss would get better but I started a timeline with all the information I could find, which was a good thing because now all I remember is a flash and noise. The thing that bothers me the most actually isn't the headaches which I still get but the memory loss. If I don't write it down instantly I forget it and sometimes when I write it down I can't find where I wrote it. I'm back at work but on summer break right now and maybe some rest will help. It's also hard to deal with the anger because by nature I am not an angry person but it seems as though I get angry over the least little thing.
I know this sounds rambling. Sorry, I don't seem to be very good at organizing my thoughts either.
