Someone going through this can’t watch this much tv. As someone going through a severe TBI right now I’d know. It’d be helpful if it was broken down in pieces

Juliroh Fit says:

my life was ruined after i got it. i went from extrovert to introvert in 1 second after i got hit by a car. i stayed in the hospital for 2 weeks puking blood and the brainscan showed i had a wound on my brain and blood ontop of it. 2016 i had a new scan and there was still dried blood ontop of my brain. life with TBI is no joke its an invinsible disability and it can change your entire personality. TBI deserves alot more attention and people need to be educated on it. i lost my happiness and cant even have a basic conversation unless its a short one but i always forget most the things somebody said to me and i couldn't care less if i died in the accident TBI is a very lonely life its like a permanent psychosis i have bad thoughts running through me 24/7 and i smoke a bunch of weed to experience some euphoria that i never get from life and to keep my head calm
