Distractibility + Open Gated Brain Function
Here is the first page from this section of the Journal called ‘And Yet, Here Go I…’.
Distractibility pg 1
Hopefully the above gives the reader an idea regarding the new way the brain functions. Every possible distraction can get a hold on your attention and draw it away. Focusing on one thing at a time becomes difficult, depending on environment.
To learn what types of environments are easiest on the brain in order to function at a level is an important step. Then you can have more effect on your productivity by managing external factors which contribute to mental fatigue. Although the more imperative recognition needs to be to realize that there is a problem in maintaining a focus. Once that has been accomplished, then the problem can be addressed.

Shock Horror!! I think my site has finally come to life!
If it is true, then that means I have managed to crack it! The frustration can finally wind down… Now all I need to do is to learn how to move on and become proficient at this blogging game.
Oh, the ideas I have had about things I can post! I have even thought of things that I might be able to make ‘links’ to in my posts – although I have no idea about how to ‘link’ anything to something else yet…
The only problem so far – is that due to the difficulty I have been experiencing launching this site, my focus has been very narrow. I haven’t been noting ideas down about future posts at all. They have been flitting in and then out of my ‘open gated‘ brain. Thereby distracting me from the ‘job at hand‘.
You might be wondering why the two phrases are italics in the paragraph above, good spotting! It has taken me about 3 yrs, but I have finally completed the text for a sort of a journal of my journey from invalid to here. The book is the reason I have persevered through this blogging phase of the trek. There will be excerpts from the book in this blog in an attempt to help others. Recognizing the new symptoms which are a result of the head injury, is an important part of overcoming them.
Stick around to see more if you or someone you love is like me, and going through the all too common challenges of coming through a brain altering experience. These might be brought on by a stroke, concussion, some head injury, or a Traumatic Brain Injury. There is HOPE! A bit of hard work, a lot of perseverance, many good laughs, and eventually it becomes like a sort of adventure!
