post concussion syndrome?
This is weird, and maybe my imagination, but I have been reading alot on here abt this, and I feel more and more like I may have this mySELF. I was in a long abusive relationship/marriage and cant count the times he held me down and banged my head on the floor. And one of the times he knocked my feet out from under me and I flew back hitting the back of my head on a lightly carpeted concrete floor. I had a MASSIVE headache for 2 wks and even the drugstore noticed I was coming in for 3 bottles of excedrin and I told them I hit my head and couldnt get rid of the headache, had upset stomach and some blurry vision. I didnt tell them HOW I hit it cuz of embarressment and "protecting" my husband (how stupid)....anyway they said I should go to the ER but i never did. Ive always had ADD, but over the past abt 8 yrs it has grown worse, and my memory is awful. I am always being told by my kids "you told me this already" and I misplace things constantly and and forget what Im saying mid-sentence. In the past 6 mo I even do things I have no recollection of. Last week I could not recall AT ALL (and still cant) withdrawing money from the bank, writing a money order for rent, and sending it. The only way I was pretty sure I did it was cuz the stub from the money order was in my purse. Im always writing down everything and have done great organizing everything needed for Dannys treatment, but I know I was already used to compensating and learning skills to deal with my ADD. This past thing with the rent really spooked me tho. It was like a blackout when you are drunk, cuz I still cant remember it at all. My best friend said maybe its just cuz Im doing soooo much that my brain is overloaded and Im on autopilot....but im not so sure....

Hi everyone,I sustained my TBI over two years ago, when I was 17. A 40 lb saddle decided that falling two feet onto my head was a good way to add some excitment to my life. My parents have been after me to find a support group where I can talk to others who are going through, or are going through what I am. I've felt alone the past few years because no one else in my life has been through...

I had to have a lung biopsy, and I have cancer. A very rare form that doesn't have any standard treatment. There just isn't a lot of case history for this. It is epithelioid hemangio endothelioma. The cancer support group doesn't talk every day. I can understand why. I'm waiting for the oncologist to call back for an appointment, and will hear in the next few days. Who knew. Ha!
It's so hard dealing with pain especially when you don't get any support from the person who your supposed to be closest to. So hard when your trying to deal with pain and that person treats you worse than the pain. Having hard time understanding why. unless you are having a good Day you are treated like crap and they make you feel worthless.
