Head pain, tell someone…

Head pain, so what do I mean about that… I am not talking the brain… No what I am talking about is the pain I have every time I touch my scalp… Always in the same place and it has hurt as long as I can remember… and yes some of those years are in my childhood…

I know why a couple of the areas hurt… I remember the assaults or attacks or beatings, you chose the title for this narrative… that covers 3 of the areas… the last area… that is the one I think that happened in Big Springs, Texas… when Margie died…

Now you are scratching your head and going, how can injuries that are received at 6 years of age and are at least 58 years old and the other’s are dispersed between the ages of 8 to 17 years of age…???

How can I have pain in my soft tissue all these years later and no one figure it out… okay now seriously, have you been reading the blog…?

It’s called neuropathy… remember I have 2, one impacts my internal organs and the other one impacts my external body parts… okay I lost some of ya didn’t I?… Central nervous system has red flags through out all my medical records, but no one figured it out… record keeping on veterans is anything but good…

What this means, with neuropathy and since my symptoms were never addressed or in fact none of my injuries were looked after, it is not surprising that my central nervous system is in over drive when it comes to sensitivity….these are typical symptoms, if you know what to look for or if you are doing your job as a doctor… No one ever touched my head, not even to this day… No one in the medical profession has touched it… Including my current doctor… sigh….

I asked hubby if any of his scalp ever hurt when he touched it and his reply is the reply I expect from anyone who has NEVER had a TBI…. He never rubbed his head, except to wash it… and it’s never hurt… just a FYI, he broke his neck at 18, so if anyone understands nerve damage, he does…

I can not remember a time when my scalp didn’t hurt… when putting pressure on 4 areas of my skull caused me pain, I quit touching the areas… until Nov 7, 2017… when I woke up… I never told anyone about the pain on my head… I was already mis-diagnosed by the time of my military discharge… and these were the people taking care of our war wounded…. I am just one of millions they failed… just 1…….

So for those with TBI and scalp or head pain, your call… I hear ya… My mother bitched I was tender headed as she hit me in the head with the hair brush and then my long hair would be gone… 58 years later I can still feel the blow to my head and that is where the nerve damage is… 

TBI’s can be caused by shaking a child, by blows to the head, by being hit with an object or being in an auto accident or falling out of the top bunk of a bunk bed set… TBI’s in children happen and you need to know, so you can protect your child’s brain… they are our future…

TimesUp #MeToo

Domestic violence is an old song, sung thru the ages like a hymn and purported to be the way christians live their lives... full of deceit, hate, bigotry and most of all fear... It is that fear that cost me my virginity, my soul and most of all my humanity... I had to fight to keep the christians hands off my soul, but they stole from my body and so did the U. S. Air Force... Rape and attempted murder... but image was more important... Vance AFB and Webb AFB... #WhyIDidntTell #MeToo TimesUP, Circle of Silence is no more....
