The Similarities of a TBI and PTSD, ret CHP Sgt Paula Siddens

Paula Siddens is a retired Sergeant with the California Highway Patrol with 30 years of service. Paula sustained a serious Traumatic Brain Injury while riding her bike down Mt. Diablo. She was lucky to even survive the accident. Paula and I have also been friends for quite some time but it’s been a long time since we have seen each other.. We recently met up at a training session for the support dog training program, First Response K9. We started talking about my PTSD and her Traumatic Brain Injury. We found that so many of our symptoms were the same. Similar family issues and collateral damage also came up. On this episode we talk about Paula’s accident and the similarities of our journeys. This episode helps to demonstrate how PTSD/PTSI is a true physiological brain injury, not just some emotional problem.

140:Under The Weather

On this episode, I elaborate on why someone with any disability has to fight ten times harder to get over a sickness and I talk about the actual definition of physical and mental health. This episode will mention how we can become creative with the ways in which we handle a simple cold or flu symptom. The reason why we struggle is because we have an overload of neurological sensory issues. People that are on the spectrum will understand that this is something else that is added to our plate.”
