About Me

The Gist of It

Source: Plants vs. Zombies
I love science, reading, and writing. But most of all I love brains. When I realized how much I loved the body and brains, I knew I wanted to go into medicine. I studied Neuropsychology at BYU and ended up working in wound science for 7 years now. Currently, I work in wound antiseptics as a research writer. In the near future, I hope to go to graduate school in the neurological sciences, continuing work in publication writing and furthering progress in neuropsychological diagnostics and treatments. On the side of things, I write for this site and am working on a book and stories. I hope to publish eventually and my readers can go, "Oh wow, this isn't nearly as boring as her site!". and maybe y'all can share a positive review or two. Or change a few keywords if it's negative.

My hobbies include reading, writing, yoga, cycling, drawing, hiking/camping, singing, hockey, and snowboarding. Sometimes my body isn't very cooperative with it all. But somehow I manage to do most of those things at least some of the time. I believe in positive thinking and the ability to shape your life. I find love to be a better tool than hate, and loving yourself and others goes a long way to make a good life. I am an advocate for active, patient involved pain-management and listening to your body. My body and I fight a lot, but overall we seem to get along through things. 

To address my numerous concussions... concussions, my numerous concussions, to address my numerous concussions, I am working with some great trainers and volunteers to train this stinker to help with my syncope problems. He keeps me from falling too much or getting run over, and I feed him treats. Seems to be working out okay. Will update if he changes his mind about helping out.

About The BedRiddenHead

I want to be happy. And this site is about that chance. How to strive to thrive in the body I've got and maybe turn my experiences into something worthwhile.

This site aims to help educate and reach out to people all over that struggle with pain or illness. To try and make something helpful. I work as a medical research writer, my background is in neuropsychology and biology, and I want to share what I learn in a way that is easy to understand. I am not a doctor. I'm definitely not your doctor. I am just some lady who wants to make someone's (anyone's) life a little bit better. Whether you have endometriosis, a chronic injury, a struggling friend, or just want to learn something new, I hope to make a place that has what you are looking for.

Thank you for stopping by, I wish you strength in your health, struggles, and happiness.
