Head Injuries – Acquired ADD?

Something for you to think about this morning with a post from Madelyn Griffith-Haynie on a subject that impacts millions of people around the world, sometimes without them being aware of the cause. A hit to the head in sport, by accident, in the boxing ring, whiplash or intentionally when hit by someone else, can result in a number of long-term mental deficits. Do you find yourself confused, losing objects, unable to carry through a simple task? Madelyn shares a very long list of symptoms that could identify that you are suffering from some form of mild to severe brain injury. Do head over to check it out.. and if I could add.. if you are cycling, skateboarding or any other activity where you might bang your head including being up a ladder… wear a helmet. #recommended

Much attention has been paid to sports-concussions and severe forms of traumatic brain injury (TBI), especially those resulting in concussions and coma.

The milder impacts, such as those from falling off a bicycle or a ladder, the jolt from a low-speed car accident or taking a weak punch in a fistfight are far more common.

These milder injuries may not entail losing consciousness — more likely to result in a slightly dazed feeling or a brief lack in responsiveness before recovering — have gotten the attention they deserve only relatively recently
