      I had depression, anxiety, and undiagnosed ADHD going back a while, and my TBI has definitely exacerbated the symptoms of all 3

      ✋ I was uber bipolar pre-tbi I was on lithium and a mix of other medications! But then when I was in the wreck and sustained my tbi it’s like my brain rewired itself!! I no longer suffer from bipolar just every day anxiety and depression haha just the norm ya know!

      Thank you. I’ve only had one manic episode after my spinal cord collapse until this one a year following my TBI. It’s hitting me much much harder, especially the sleep deprivation. I feel like I need 2 weeks to recover my life is not like that.

      I agree with Amanda, most of my preexisting conditions were exaggerated and or worsened by TBI. Mood swings, depression, anxiety, adhd, poor math skills, brain fog

      I have started treatment for ADHD after my brain injury but I believe I have had it my whole life. It just became more debilitating after my injury
