After suffering a traumatic brain injury, the things you used to be able to do like it was nothing, are now inordinately difficult. When you used to have a mind like a steel trap, now you can’t remember your own address. This can also be difficult emotionally, as victims try to cope with re-learning basic life tasks that used to be easy.
2. Dealing With The Effects Can Be Physically And Psychologically Exhausting
People living with TBI will find themselves absolutely exhausted and irritable all the time. Everything you used to do that was easy, is now hard. You’re frustrated because you forgot how to do basic things, you’re confused about everything, you’re re-learning basic tasks — it takes a lot out of you. On top of that, you’re depressed because you’re a shell of your former self and can see everyone doing things with ease that are hard for you. That can knock you down pretty hard.
