Some interesting descriptions given of a brain injury by people who have sustained a TBI. Have you a description of your own?
"It's like living in another world, where I no longer know what once was, what is normal anymore."
" Scrambled egg between my ears."
"BI is learning to live in a brain that sometimes feels like it belongs to a stranger."

Wow just clicked on that link, you really can't ever understand or define a brain injury unless you have one, its not just head aches, concentration, fatigue etc its everything and this is what the 'experts' don't understand.

I always find it werid, like im still me but not who I was before the injury. An expert won't pick much up, but I can, and people who saw me everyday can tell. There just so many small changes to the way you think, the way you respond, and the way you relate to the world.
