What specific physical and emotional problems may I – or a loved one – face after experiencing a TBI?

Symptoms and long-term deficits can vary greatly. However, a fair number of TBI survivors may struggle with diminished motor capabilities – problems getting around on their own. These difficulties may be temporary or permanent. You may also have trouble sleeping during different phases of your recovery and treatment. Some survivors also develop depression as they confront the reality that certain changes or losses may be permanent.
Secondary injuries can also develop in the form of seizures. If these start, you will need to consult with a qualified neurologist to bring them under control. Although it may seem rather intimidating to adjust to all these physical and cognitive changes, you may be surprised by the number of kind people and local support groups happy to help you redefine your daily life activities and goals. If you cannot readily locate one – you can always ask someone at your local hospital (or place of worship) if they would be willing to let you and others battling serious illnesses and disabilities meet there regularly.
It’s often a good idea to contact a social worker at a local hospital to help you arrange special transportation to and from medical appointments. Fortunately, many rehabilitation groups will provide you with transportation if you live in a large metropolitan area. As your condition improves, you may soon want to take part in NY Brain Injury Association activities.
