  •  I certainly went off about it. (3+ / 0-)

    For someone who lives a very rich inner life, getting a brain injury at 23 is scary and rage-inducing.  All because of someone's carelessness.

    Thanks for your sympathy.  I would like to stress that it could have been much worse.  I have vertigo, light induced migraines, and a very poor short term memory (that used to be excellent).  At this point it looks like I will have these issues for the rest of my life.  I was lucky to walk away with no physical injuries besides my brain injury from having a thirty pound crate drop from a fifteen foot shelf directly on to my head.  Docs were amazed that I had no fractures/muscle damage/spinal damage.  Then again, I hate pop and have always consumed far too much milk, so perhaps I just have stupidly thick bones and a thick skull.  ;]
