Hey Docs! Innovate Long COVID Care!!

qEEG and neurostimulation have improved the lives of people with brain injury. It’s time to study it for the treatment of people living with long COVID. While clinics and docs “innovate” medicine for Long COVID by bringing back 1980s’ methods for blood pressure instability*, I’ve been looking and asking around about 21st medicine. We’ve progressed…

Two Books – Two Yays!

A selection of my reviews of books and things.

Early this morning, I received the beta reader comments on book one of my Resurrection Trilogy. And a few hours later I discussed my self-help book with my editor, the one who guided me through Lifeliner and my first novels and oversaw Concussion Is Brain Injury (both editions). The Interdimension Beta Read Katherine of Autocrit,…

Revising time starts today! I know, almost a month after I finished drafting my self-help book for people with brain injury in April’s Camp NaNoWriMo.

I obeyed. I set my Camp goal as 25,000 words. I don’t usually manage to last the month, and I thought halving the November…

Self-Help Book Launching Into Camp

It’s relatively easy (though super tiring, draining, exhausting) to research and put together facts, especially since I’ve essentially been doing that since 2005.…

Pandemic Stages Are Like Brain Injury Stages

This entry is part 4 of 4 in the series Psychology Today - Fatigue and Brain Injury

The longer this pandemic grinds on, the more similarities I see with how my brain injury recovery went. It’s so sad that physicians and rehabilitation haven’t innovated in the last two decades to change those stages. I wrote my latest post for Psychology Today on this topic, on how a concussion, or COVID-19, devastates us…
