Ho hum

Nothing much to say.

I got my TBI in 2005. when I fell off my bike, in France. I was lucky, and I went back to work, after 18 months.

I am just feeling hassled, because it is not the holidays yet - I still have to go into work on Tuesday. I still have lots of marking to do. I have 3 doctors appointments on Monday and Tuesday (none of which have anything to do with the Brain Injury, as far as I know, just a painful hip & leg problem, which has cropped up since then).

On the one side, I think "Well, I am really lucky to have survived the TBI, and to have gone back to work, even though I am definitely not 'right' (I am officially 'blind', my balance is bad, my handwriting is virtually illegible...)".

On the other side, I think "This is not fair! How can I be unlucky enough to have a different, unrelated, problem? Wasn't it bad enough?"

Hi Flumptious , good to hear from you again.

You are an inspiration, you have continued with your life despite the problems you have you are entitled to a little grumble now and again.

It may be that your hip and leg problems have been caused y your sight and balance issues.

My posture has changed, as has my gait, because of my balance and sight issues, I fully expect in the fullness of time to experience other skeletal problems, meanwhile I try to correct where I can.

Enjoy the holidays when you can.

Hi Flumptious,

Sorry to hear about your new problems.

Unfortunately, as we go through life, other medical issues crop up for some of us.

Your resilience so far is to be admired, I hope you can find some help for this new issue to make things easier. Hoping you have a lovely break, after your very busy schedule.

All the best,

Hi Flumptious, Extra things to deal with take so much more out of us after Bi.

Grumble away. We understand.

Take care. Kx

I guess it's possible that leg/hip got damaged at the same time?

But yes is fairly horrible luck!
