The Title of a new book I’m starting today!
Here’s the opening paragraph…
At age 15 I was in a serious accident in Cape Town, South Africa and was in a coma, unconscious or semi-conscious for between 3 weeks and 6 weeks, I think.. Since then have suffered from severe and chronic fatigue, which has shaped much of my life. (My dear X (a “very down to earth and practical” nurse”) says “Ive been sleep-walking through life”). Now after turning 65 the other day (and being really tired most of the time) , thought I’d write about aging and fatigue following TBI, based on my experience and hope this “info” may be helpful to others, patients, family and carers “out there”.!
Here’s a few interesting resources, links for a start…
“TBI is a much more manageable injury today than it has been in the past, but it remains a major health problem. As people with TBI continue to live longer and face the challenges of aging with TBI, it will be our duty to provide better education and long-term programs and services. We all have brains; let’s continue to use them — injured or not — to support TBI prevention, research, and treatment.”
