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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
