Neuro what???

Neuroplasticity… any clue what that means… it is something I have talked about, but in layman’s terms… even I don’t like the technical jargon….

What the plasticity means… when the brain is injured in my case… either from concussion or other physical trauma… the brain made new pathways to compensate for the damage done to what ever area mother or dad decided to aim for…. as for the sister and top bunk… she was a kid… spoiled brat… but still a kid…

So every time they hurt the brain… it started working immediately on its own to rewire and reroute what ever function that had been damaged…. which makes lots of sense when I think of the left side of my body… the right temporal lobe is the area damaged in Texas… when Margie died….

That weakness is a memory from high school at Johnson AFB and I remember the teacher having all us kids do the balance beam… the minute I tried to use my left side… I fell off the beam… I was not strong enough to hold my weight… and I knew this when I went through basic and just pushed myself to perform…. same goes for my flying lessons… legs were not strong enough for the foot pedals… and this all got my attention… Why.???

I have told Mike for about 6 months about how I knew that the neuroplasticity had gone on in my brain, because of the Japan assault at 14… that is when the brain really struggled to survive and that is when Maggi’s personality came out to play….

The thought process with this rewire thing the brain does… I have always been aware… didn’t understand it until now… but I knew and I listened to me… and dread just filled my soul… how many veterans have been hurt, by the terrible health care they provide to us… how many???

I am fortunate… I had faith in me… I knew and trusted the one thing in life most humans are afraid of…¬†

I trusted myself and not the voices around me… college educated does not make you smart… it just means you can pass tests… what you do with your skills, shows the intelligence you did or did not use….

I Remember… Margie….

Author: maggi9454

Margie was born into a typical christian military family... Her story is anything but typical... Domestic violence, rape, attempted murder and all done while my dad served in the U. S. Air Force and they buried the truth... then my own children impacted by Air Force cover up while I am active duty.... Rape, Attempted murder, domestic violence and discrimination in the name of the United States Government... and it is still happening as I write... just look at Trump, Kavanaugh and Thomas.... Circle of Silence is no more....
