Four months ago I took a serious fall resulting in facial fractures and concussion. The fractures are mostly healed but the concussion has a ways to go. Following the accident, I was put on "brain rest"--no reading, no TV, no computer, NO knitting. When reading and computer time resumed, I got back to the KP digest as a troll. Reading the generous posts of KPers was a big part of my healing; the numerous posts of encouragement to other knitters encouraged me.
I've now resumed knitting, starting out with garter stitch projects. I've just started a 4-row pattern for a reader's shawl (3 rows stockinette, 1 simple pattern row), and it is a challenge. I think I have tinked at least one row in every other 4-row repeat. I am persisting.I told my husband that this is my recovery project. Every time I realize that I've goofed up, I hear the voice of fellow KPers encouraging me, assuring me that I CAN do this. You all are great.
good to know you are back. Just take it slow and easy. Concussions can be a LONG time healing. Best of luck to you and stay persistent. ♥
Glad to hear things are going well and you're starting to knit again. You're correct we're here to cheer you on and encourage you. I think you chose a great project to start with and before long you'll be knitting without having to frog anything. Keep us updated as to how the project is going and how your recovery is going as well. Happy knitting...Judy :)

You can do this! The brain is amazing and will adapt! Keep working!

I'm so sorry for your accident and its consequences. It was lovely of you to share your healing experience with us. I wish you continued recovery and thank you for telling us about it.
Good for you for persisting! It will take time but you really will get there!
Take it slow and have patience with yourself. It takes time for the brain to rewire itself.
Glad you are recovering even though it is slower than you'd like. Progress occurs and you can tell by where you have come in 4 months. Prayers for continued recovery.
