Shireen Jeejeebhoy's Brain Injury Blog

Shireen Jeejeebhoy is an author, photographer, and social media addict who sustained a mild traumatic brain injury in a multi-car crash in January 2000. It took eight months to recognize and diagnose the brain injury. At the time, she was in the middle of writing a biography on the first person in the world to live on artificial feeding without eating even one morsel of food. Needless to say she could not continue. But after relearning how to write and undergoing brain biofeedback treatments, Shireen finished Lifeliner: The Judy Taylor Story and went on to write two novels as well as poems and a screenplay adaptation of Lifeliner. She also maintains an active Twitter account, Flickr account, a blogspot blog, and a website, which is dedicated to her writings and to sharing what she has learned about brain injury and its consequences.

Shireen has been generous enough to share some of her blog posts with BrainLine:

AWESOME post. It's nice to find posts detailing the physical and biochemical mechanisms underlying brain injury, and not just tips for coping emotionally. I also prefer to be solving problems, not simply coping.

Good to know about the hypothalamic dysregulation after TBI. I thought my body temperature had felt kind of kooky lately. Glad there's a systemic anatomic explanation that I can do something about.

Thanks again, friend. Here's to moving forward as a subject of one of the great experiments of modern medicine.

What do I do? I have this problem too post head injury in 2012
