Returning to Brain Training Routine

I had problems with my WordPress app when I went to post this blog post. Totally forgot I hadn’t once I got the app working again. So here it is, a few weeks late! My brain trainer was off on a well-earned, long-overdue vacation. So I got three weeks (two sessions) off too! All the […]

A Whale of a Post

I wanted to see the Blue Whale heart at the ROM (Royal Ontario Museum), but I hadn’t been there in years, never mind in the year since my eye surgery. Navigating large indoor spaces with my new vision still makes my head spin. Yet I asked my CNIB orientation mobility trainer if he could take […]

Week Five PZ Brain Training and Concussion Is Brain Injury Update with a Side Order of Scrivener

I’m entering the August/September fatigue-drums. Deadlier than the doldrums. Perhaps good timing that my health care professionals are all taking vacations. Sequentially, not simultaneously, of course! Tsk. But at least my schedule will be quieter. Bwahahaha! What am I thinking?! The universe always finds a way to cut into my quiet time. Anywho, not much […]

My EMG was decent except during the HRV screen, the one that’s supposed to induce relaxation and prep me […]

Week Three of New Brain Biofeedback Protocols

It had taken a few hours to percolate into comprehension and explode sharp-eyed moral anger through my being. Looking at brain injury through the lens of the DSM, through the […]

Week Two Enhance Gamma and Inhibit Beta to Heal Injury

Week two of new double protocol. First comes gamma then comes, uh, goes beta. I came in to week two with emotional stress, grief touched off by neurodoc. Because he's got nothing better to do than sodden my fibres with emotional stress exhaustion. Anywho. The coming change of seasons will be affecting me soon too, […]

New PZ Brain Biofeedback to Work on Injured Precuneus

OMG. The brightness, the clarity, the colours popping and sharp are almost as overwhelming as right after my eye surgery. We trained a new area this past week in brain biofeedback. I haven't yet blogged on my evoke and 19-point qEEG assessment. But the big finding was that once again my precuneus was off the […]

Brain Injury Reassessment, Part One

I got my brain assessment results back. There are a lot of them! I'll talk about them in the order I did them until I peter out then finish another time. The first ones were the usual questionnaires. Can't stand them as I did a bazillion the same or like them for too many insurance […]
