If you've followed me you know my multiple health issues. The one that has changed my life the most is multiple head trauma. I never realized how much until my last concussions. One of which reinjured my old concussion that cost me my memory.
I'm in a TBI group on Facebook and have been learning alot from others. Things I didn't think about a bang to the head changing. Its probably because I've had 3 or 4 bad concussions. Anyway no one ever told me anything about this. I've just been learning bits here and there for the last 13 years.
Since January 2018 when I fell and did that number on my head, I've had so much trouble doing things. I'm talking activity. My exhaustion levels have gone way up. I guess my brain that controls my body and physical activity was majorly affected last year. Follow that with a 2nd fall six months later and my body screams in protest.
I no longer have endurance. If I get moving I feel great for awhile doing something but then I hit a wall and am exhausted. With that comes the pain levels going through the roof.
My son has said he seen me go way down this past year. Thus year brought 3 rounds with a stomach virus and bronchitis that turned into pneumonia. I feel my energy hitting the bottom. I ended up on doctor ordered rest until I got over the pneumonia. Then another stomach virus hit, the worse. I got so dehydrated and I am sure my sodium levels went down. Fortunately I recognized that and was able to correct it without being hospitalized for it again. It's happened twice.
I feel like I am walking a tightrope healthwise. I guess I'm having to reevaluate life once again.
Thank you all for your support and prayers and love and hugs that you send me. I believe in the power of prayer. Please keep me in your thoughts as I struggle to find a way forward.
Much love, hugs and prayers for you too
