I am about a year and a half out of my car accident which resulted in a TBI. Your symptoms were so very similar to my experience- thank you for sharing! I had a concussion first and was sent home, and then swelling began and there started my journey with a TBI (aphasia/ataxia/spasticity/dystonia). Your story is the closest to mine that I have heard (in family/friends, driving, Symptoms, etc…)! Thank again for sharing! Very encouraging!
