Mmmm...that sounds delicious lol.
What about warm apple pie, topped with vanilla ice cream? Nothing can beat that in my book.
Thank you for the detailed explanation of how music effects the brain, as well as the info about dopamine production. Caleb is definitely a positive mood changer for me. He doesnt have any friends to play with....so, I will pretend to be a kid and we'll play together with trucks and wrestle around the house. He loves to hear the sounds of an ambulance passing by. He will mock the sound of it and that always make me smile.
Children are definitely a wonderful therapy and natural anti-depressant.
I definitely overloaded myself with music last night. I enjoyed listening to my old songs and singing along, however, my brother and sister stopped by while I was jamming and it forced me to use my divided attention (huge struggle for me). I suddenly went from happy and alert to SPACED OUT. I might have also over exerted myself with the songs that were listened to. Woke up with a "hang over" type feeling and paired with communication troubles.
Well, Im off to making breakfast for Caleb and I.
Catch you later.
What happened: I was randomly assaulted from behind in June of 2011. I was knocked unconscious for an unknown amount of time (less than 30 minutes) and have no memory of the event. CT scan showed contusion and hematoma of the left frontal lobe. I spent 3 days in the hospital. Diagnosed with Post-Concussion Syndrome in September 2011. Currently have Medicaid, Medicare and SSI.
Current symptoms: Brain fog, mild memory issues, problems with spontaneity, occasional spacing out, word finding difficulties, tinnitus in right ear and some other things that I can't explain.
Life after the brain injury: 4 years after the injury, I'm engaged to my beautiful girlfriend of 5 years, I'm the CEO of my own business, Notorious Labs, I've taught myself how to program complex games and apps which is a feat I never thought I'd accomplish and now live a semi-normal life with very mild PCS symptoms.
Slowly but surely regaining my life back.
