to figure this out...

After the head injury I had during Basic Training which I did not graduate Basic Training for the Army branch of the United States of America's Armed Forces caused a coma with a subarachnoid hemorrhage which took 4.5 years to start to show signs of improvement from as I learned how to deal with the headaches, migraines, cognitive disorders, memory problems, and other medical conditions I went from College Algebra with Trigonometry & Calculus down to 2nd grade math; though as I have always admitted such since waking up from my coma I have stood against any type of stolen valor in regards of the United States of America's Armed Forces, simply by acknowledging such. My thoughts are a bit different at times for the ability to explain various situations to which, here is how logic works for someone such as myself though possibly others with or without a head injury also known as a TBI or traumatic brain injury:
~ It took awhile for the doctor's recommendation to use sticky notes, to help remember.
~ It took several months to realize sticky notes moved, let alone to remember to speak with the doctor.
~ After I finally remembered to ask the doctor about the note problem, notebooks were recommended.
~ When I could remember to pick up a notebook, it took a long time to learn similar to sticky notes, notebooks are not always where they were placed.
~ After I was able to organize the notebooks over several months I still had not learned notebooks are not always readily available, at the necessary time.
~ When I remembered to speak with the doctor about the notebook problem the doctor had few other suggestions, to assist memories better.
~ After several events and adding up sticky note and notebook location problems, I realized my skin goes everywhere I do.
~ Wanting my tattoos to only be for me and not for public consumption I started the ink on my legs, able to hide easier.
~ It would not be until many tattoos and several years later I would realize my memory problems were usually not as bad when wearing shorts, capri pants, or a skirt.
~ Between 3-5 years after my first tattoo I had the first tattoo completed on my arms, and my memory has slowly progressed towards an easier memory jolt.
When I say "it should not take a head injury to figure this out" it is partially in humor from personal experiences, towards understanding.
If I can laugh at my mistakes after recognizing and dealing with them, so can you.
You have the knowledge, understanding, and wisdom I lack in order to put everything together to fix the problems seen with abilities I do not have.
Utilize the information within the blog to find genuine repairs and instead of complaining of the "hurtful" commentary, prevent the issues from reoccurring.
Then again, it should not take a head injury to figure that one out.
