Have you ever thought that your INSOMNIA might have come on after a HEAD INJURY?
… Did you know that post-concussive symptoms don’t always happen until weeks, months—or even YEARS—after the initial blow to the head?
… And sometimes, the “blow” to the head can be as SMALL as a bonk when you’re stepping up out of a car, or when you stand up from bending over the garbage can in the kitchen and knock your head on the open cabinet ...
… Small, repetitive, mini-traumas CAN add up over time ...
IS THIS YOU:
You have this overall low-grade cloudiness and lack of clarity or BRAIN FOG, and it takes HOURS to actually feel awake after you get out of bed in the morning.
You CONCENTRATE so hard but still can’t quite find the right word, and you get FRUSTRATED or EMBARRASSED at your problems with simple communication.
You have already tried EVERYTHING and still have an impossible time falling asleep at night.
Or, you’ve tried everything and fall asleep okay but can’t STAY asleep longer than an hour or two.
If any of this sounds like you (or someone you love), then I invite you to tune into a Facebook Live with me, Dr. Jessie, to learn about the relationship between CONCUSSION and INSOMNIA. And, even better, I’ll be talking about the strategies that DO EXIST (despite the standard approach to concussion which is ... dismissive at best), and how YOU CAN get real, actual answers to your concussion-related insomnia.
Join me on Friday, April 3rd, at 11:00am MST (that’s Mountain or Denver Time) for a 15-minute Facebook Live session. Invite your friends who might benefit from learning about this essential topic that impacts far more people than you realize.
I hope you can join me.
Stay tuned for our Facebook Live on April 3rd at 11am MST or watch the Replay!
