Traumatic Brain Injury & Whiplash … Not A Relevant History? A little while back I posted a piece about the Epstein Barr Virus potentially being a beginning point regarding chronic health issues and progressive dysfunction that I have battled for …
Blackouts and Missing Moments… The Perception of Time
Note: This post is part of the Symptoms In Reality Category as a personal experience. You’ll notice I use the terms “Blackout(s)” and “possible” in relation to the experiences I am about to share. I will say flat out, for …
The Downfall of Strength!
I can’t help but wonder how many people are dismissed by healthcare professionals because they don’t allow themselves to look sick enough, complain loudly enough or wince while being poked and prodded by doctors?
