COMMUNICATION PROBLEMS

I've been holding back some things. Personal and embarrasing too. About 2 weeks ago, I had an appt with my therapist. Apparently, I got up , and left for the appt, but didn't make there. I woke up in the ER. I have no memory of what happened to me, if I was assaulted or if I may have had a siezier. By the next day, both of my eyes were swollen shut and I am still bruised from forehead to chin. Most of the right side of my body is bruised as well. I'm sore and stiff, but the worst part is, the agoraphobia is back, full force too. Communication, even writing here is very hard, it's taken me a couple of days to post anything at all, but I feel I owe it to all of you to let you know why I haven't been online. I have a pretty nasty concussion, I went to a follow up appt with my Primary Care MD who is sending me to a nuerologist. He thinks there might be something medical going on. I did have a CAT scan in the ER and that showed nothing abnormal.

I seem to be healing up wellso don't worry if I'm gone a few days. I'm exhausted and am just going to try to spend the next few days in bed.

I'm sorry Reba.

Take your time and hopefully feel better.

No reason to feel pressure here.

I have not felt well since this "accident". But I have made an appt with a nuerologist on Thursday. I'm hoping he can find a cause. This is not the first time this has happened, there was another "blackout" last November.

I have a brain injury caused several years ago from chenmo therapy for breast cancer. It is generally called Organic Brain Syndrome. It is very much like early onset Alheizmiers. Memories fade, fears become terrors, you seem to loose who you are, and it is progressive. I'm hoping really, that there is some other cause. My socialworker had sugjested an assisted living arrangement a few months back, but I want to stay a independant as I can for as long as I can.

Thank all of you for your kind words and support! I thik that helps more than anything!

HUGZ,

Reba
