Traumatic Brain Injury Disrupts Thought Patterns

That is the title of a post I recently published on my Thought Patterns blog.

The point of the blog posting is to inaugurate our contribution to growing efforts that focus attention on a condition that affects a broad cross-section of the population. It is a health condition that is not widely understood.

There are many names associated with injuries involving impact to the head.

Head Injuries – Brain Injury – Traumatic Brain Injury – TBI
Concussion – Multiple Concussions
Post Concussion Syndrome – PCS
Second Impact Syndrome –  Repetitive Head Injury Syndrome

Thought Patterns will be my primary communications platform for the topic of TBI. However I will use Boomer Review and any other voice I have to share information that may help others understand how our brains can be affected by injuries.

  • Have you fallen and hit your head?
  • Have you ever been in a car accident? bike accident?
  • Have you played football? hockey? soccer?
  • Has something heavy ever fallen on your head?
  • Have you ever been slapped? Or in a fight?

These are just a few of the things that could cause a brain injury.  They could happen to anybody. Anyone could be a victim of several of these events. The cumulative effect of repetitive events could result in significant damage.

Everyone should learn how such injuries can impact our lives.

The following list of resources is a beginning. Let me know if you have additional resources to suggest.
