Your traumatic brain injury and your future

| Dec 2, 2020 | Personal Injury |

The relief of hearing from medical professionals that your accident has not caused a permanent brain injury can provide indescribable relief. However, as time progresses, you should continue to watch for signs of diminishing function and ability which could indicate an unseen problem.

While your accident may not have caused any immediate symptoms, head injuries have an interesting way of gradually worsening over time if not treated right away. Knowing the warning signs to watch can assist you in seeking help for persistent symptoms before it is too late.

Long-term TBI effects

Because your brain is primarily responsible for so many critical bodily functions, an injury to it could directly affect your ability to do a lot of things. According to Psychology Today, your brain injury could impact you in the following ways:

  • Your mood and the way you respond to people in social situations
  • Your coordination and your ability to manipulate things to complete tasks
  • Your energy level and how effectively you can complete physical tasks
  • Your ability to read, write, organize, speak and recall details
  • Your ability to manage stimulation without feeling overwhelmed

Seeking ongoing support

All of the aforementioned ways in which a TBI can affect your function may mean significant changes to your confidence, as well as your willingness and effectiveness in completing certain tasks. Growing in your career, maintaining family relationships, pursuing educational goals and developing personal strengths may appear daunting and unrealistic.

Fortunately, a wealth of resources including therapy and community support groups can help you learn how to live a happy and rewarding life despite your TBI. At the earliest indication of trouble and even if your traumatic accident happened years ago, seek help right away to keep your injury from derailing your goals for the future.
