This video was made for our TBI Voices project. We interviewed thirty real life survivors of brain injury. In these interviews we talked to the survivors about how they became brain injured and who they were before their brain injury. We also talk about their recovery and what deficits they have encountered because of their brain injury.
Lori has discussed the difficult task of navigating sexuality after frontal lobe injury.
Thank you for your honesty about what is one of the most complicated parts of recovering from a brain injury, and it’s especially complicated because sex and romance are the most complicated things we do as growing up to be adults.
When you manage to reestablish a meaningful relationship with your boyfriend, your fiancé, how did you regrow grow the intimacy and the sexual and the romantic feelings again?
