What's On Your Mind Right Now?


Recommended Posts

I'm remembering a severe brain injury I had while a teenager.  I was going down a very long and steep hill on my bicycle.  I went out of control, flew off and over the handle bars and hit a brick wall head first.  At the time in my hometown [back in the 1960s] there wasn't much known about head injuries.  Anyway . . . I am wondering now if that had some influence on the development of depression in me.

@Epictetus Funny you should mention this. I have wondered the same about myself over the years. When I was 11 I fell off my bike (no helmet of course - we didn't do that in the 80s)...my head hitting concrete. I went in to full seizure mode...ambulance ride I don't remember - I woke up in the hospital 3 hours or so, doctors nurses and my mom all looking down at me lol, just like in the movies haha.

I wish there was a way to know!!!! I mean our prefrontal cortex alone doesn't finish developing until we are 25, so what about the rest of it when we are younger??

The true meaning and spirit of Christmas is on my mind right now... forgiveness of our enemies and wrongful acts committed against us, selfless giving, charitable actions, neighborly/brotherly love, kindness, compassion, peace, patience and understanding.....

I wrote a blog entry on it today. I want to be a better person in mind, body and soul.

I so don't want to be an old lady. 

Thats been on my mind too. I don't want to grow up and be an old man. I am 48 now but since I was a boy I told myself that I would never grow up and become like the adults I seen in my life. But time keeps on ticking into the future, but I would still rather be young at heart. But there are still times that I feel like this...

I can't tell if somebody's yelling my name or not, and it's worrying me. I keep thinking I here it but when I go downstairs nobody was calling my name. Ugh, I hate when this happens.

I wish I knew what to tell you.  I know this has happened to me, too, though nothing lately.  It was all the more confusing when I lived in a house full of people; I couldn't tell who was calling who, or if anyone was being called.  I can see how distressing that would be.
