I am a survivor of traumatic brain injury who now works as a case manager with disabled adults. This article covers both my experience as well as that of one of my clients.
All my life, I have been told I must have "big brains to hold all that smartness in." Little did I know this was actually true.
In a split second, everything in my life would change drastically. I never knew the impact that one concussion could have on not only myself, but my family, my friends, and those around me.
If you hit your head hard and are now feeling foggy, having head pain, or having trouble remembering, you may have a concussion. Check these symptoms and see if you need to go to the doctor.
Resting the brain doesn't come naturally to children, yet rest is needed for concussion recovery. This list helped us relieve boredom when our daughter had a concussion.
I have been rehabilitating from my traumatic brain injury (TBI) for almost 10 months, during which time I have learned that doing certain things daily helps me a lot with my symptoms. This is not medical advice by any means, just what I have found that helps me.
