This story is part of our TBI voices project where we interviewed 20 survivors of brain injury. We discussed ongoing deficits these survivors may be encountering and those that they have conquered.
Intimacy is difficult after any brain injury, even without specific sexual dysfunction. Frontal lobe dysfunction severely alters the capacity of a survivor to do the “little things” that make a lover feel cared for and appreciated. Add to that “physical changes” and the normal interaction between husband and wife can get seriously distorted. With that distortion can come profound frustration, leading inevitably to behavior extremes.
