      Putting on bras when only one of your hands work!!!!!! Suggestions besides hooking first and over the head? Because I’m going through bras like hang busters over here. My mom used to help me dress but she suddenly died April 3,2022

      @TraumaToad then I hope you change it from being your secret hideaway into your safe space to retreat to after your upcoming adventures w new connections. :)

      Right now loneliness is my biggest battle after TBI. Blocking out the noise and light also blocked out the rest of the world. Now I almost feel trapped in my silent hideaway

      You could begin with brain supplements such as organic Turkey Tail & Lion’s Mane mushrooms. I had the most severe TBI other than a penetrating brain injury. Received a Diffuse Axonal Injury (DAI), that put me into a coma in ICU for a month, and I am a walking miracle alive and well. Also, DHA supplementation is also supposed to help wonders for the brain as well. However, the major issues I face despite a healthy brain, are issues with severe depression, anger outbursts, and little will to face the day when I wake up. Rather, I intentionally tend to attempt to force myself back to sleep despite the time of the day as I simply do not have any motivation to face the day because I also lost my child and significant baby’s mother immediately after I woke from my month long coma. I thank God for sparing my life and giving me extended life, but it is so hard my ex has taken my daughter across the country while I was still recovering in Baylor Day Neuro program for therapy 5 long days a week.

      I've also experienced neurological issues ( paralysis ) on 1/2 of my body 27 yrs ago. Had a motorcycle accident 1 yr ago, spent 2 months in hospital, 3 days after being released, started experiencing neurological issues again. Not the paralysis, just strange feelings all over my body, food in my mouth doesn't feel the same, my balance is off, I speak slow and methodical. I feel people can notice. I'm self conscious about it. It started on 1/2 of my body. Feeling it all over now. Mainly from the waist down. Feel weird in my upper arms and wrist. My checks on my face feel strange to the touch. My left side is way stronger in the symptoms. I get way tired now trying to do anything. 5 simple lunges on each leg wipe me out. Just getting ready in the morning makes me tired. I tried working 8 months after the accident. I do bookkeeping. I can't multi-task anymore. I went in for two weeks straight, just sucking it up, but at the end of two weeks, finally gave it up. It was to hard for me. Just walking down the isle at the grocery store makes me dizzy looking back and forth for items. Loudness makes me anxious. The end of May will be 1 year after my accident. I don't even know if a doctor can help. I feel like my body needs to heal itself like it did 27 years ago. But it doesn't seem to be healing. I'm sharing to see if anyone has similar experiences the can relate to and what they have done to have healed from the symptoms. Or if they are still experiencing them. If anyone is like me, you don't research this kind of stuff unless you are experiencing a problem 😑.

      I have trouble remembering names and pulling up words now. Trouble remembering when things happened, what year/timeframe. I also found if I get very tired or hungry I get agitated and anxious. Eat regular meals at regular times and get enough sleep. It helps.

        @Jcm13 I have trouble remembering names too but I remember faces. I get irritated quickly because of my hypersensitivity to noise from the ptsd.

      I have a traumatic brain injury and paralyzed on the right side of my body because of a stroke after a motorcycle accident. Praise the Lord I’m alive, I’m truly hoping I won’t have another seizure anymore, last one was in ‘18, and I become un paralyzed. I used to be a commercial pilot and miss it a ton everyday.
