  •  I had a (7+ / 0-)

    TBI when I was 17. Motorcycle landed on my head and broke every bone in my face. Surgeon didn't set my jaw right so 7 years after, they reconstructed my jaw. Kick stand went in my head. I remember trying to scratch that itch, but it made my pupil itch. Funny, since there are no nerves there.
    However, no one told me about memory problems. They were just like an alcoholic black out. I would have hour long meetings and the next day I had no memory of them. Suffered from this for over 30 years. One day I asked a friend a ?  She yelled YES! Then told me I had asked the ? 4 times in 5 minutes. Called my doc. He said it was my TBE and didn't anyone tell me about the memory problems? By that time I had quite a complex.
    Nice diary.  I have the anger outbursts too. Those are fun. Not.
