Walking Sickness

slip and fallA founding purpose of this venture was to learn about blogs. Well, since October I have learned another thing or two.

The press of life can will divert you from your commitment to – as is universally advised by blog tipsters – keeping your blog content “fresh.”

October began with too many commitments. Then came “walking sickness” and hospitalization. “Walking sickness” means that, in an occurrence I do not recall, I tripped and fell on the street in downtown Raleigh and knocked myself unconscious. I was ambulanced off to a hospital.

When I was released from the hospital the next day, they told me that my brain would take about six weeks to heal. In the meantime, I would experience  headaches and fatigue and sleep a lot. Also, possible cognitive dysfunction.

Part way into my six weeks, I was taken down by that virus that was going around. Its symptoms included headaches, fatigue, sleeping a lot and all kinds of dysfunction. Coming out of that, I was plunged into Christmas and New Year’s, which led to ….

I now suspect I have been wrestling with one kind of brain trauma or another off and on since early adolescence.

None of the blog tipsters mentioned any of this.
