I just can’t bury it all like most people can. I can’t push it out of my mind. Every moment of every day there is a war in me that wreaks havoc and destroys my insides. My brain is endlessly battered with waves of doubt and guilt and my heart is wrapped in thorns that grow tighter and tighter, squeezing the life out of me. All I can do is wait and watch and hope that after it all eventually burns down, my soul will have a chance to rebuild itself from the smoldering wreckage.
So Dragon Princesses tend to accumulate a great deal of wealth, live in small communal groups of other Dragon princesses, and are fairly secretive and standoffish with outsiders, all things that could lead to them being considered strange weirdos to the local community, or possibly a cult or coven. (I imagine a lot of groups posed as nuns at a convent to avoid this) They are also completely fireproof.
A lot of the various witch trials during the early modern period were basically excuses by those in power to try and seize the property of the accused.
At some point in the 15-17th century, someone accused a nest of Dragon Princesses of being witches and/or heretics and tried to have them burned at the stake in order to get at their gold.
This ended poorly, and the leader of that particular nest is still on the rolls somewhere as a minor Catholic Saint.
I need you to stop running. I’m exhausted and I need to sleep. I can’t deal with your overload right now. Please, listen to me. Just for a few more days, till I’ve gotten my new prescriptions. Then I can help you, but right now I need you to help me, mkay?
Here’s a guide on what exactly a traumatic brain injury is, what it does to the individual, and how it affects the family. The most important thing to know is that it does not affect every person the same. Each person is going to react differently to it, have different life long side effects. Some people may bounce back to almost 100% of who they were before, others might never come close to it. It all depends on the individual.
Why am I writing a guide on this? I truly do not believe that the media, such as TV shows, movies, books, and even roleplays accurately depict what it means to be in a coma, how you are afterwards, and how much work you have to do. I do believe that it can be fixed if people just understand a little bit more about what they are reading, seeing, or writing.
As for myself, in May 2011, my dad suffered from a blow to the head after falling off his bicycle. We were unsure if he was going to live, we almost lost him once on the operating table. 9 days after the initial fall, he woke up from his coma. 5 days later, after spending an entire 14 days in ICU, he left for a rehab facility that helped him, with numerous intensive therapies, come back home. If you have any more questions about what happened, or if you need someone to talk to about it, feel free to message me! I’ll gladly answer as many questions as I can!
Often times, in my own family, we look at the time differently now. It’s always Before Accident or After Accident. These times are vastly different for reasons I will explain below.
Traumatic Brain Injury ( TBI ) : defined as a blow or jolt to the head or a penetrating head injury that disrupts the function of the brain
