    Yes. Big time. Depending on how bad the TBI was/when you got it.

      could it be ADHD related?

      • NickGobes75


        adhd can cause a lot of symptoms, concentration being the main one! If you’re concerned I’d definitely get with your doctor and get tested!

    I don’t know about the watching through your camera app part though.

    I have definitely noticed my concentration is shot, and it wasn't great before my TBI

    I’d give yourself time. My concentration was HORRIBLE when I first got my TBI but now that I’m 7 years into the brain injury world, I can concentrate on things I’m interested in so much better!!

    Oh! Maybe try watching a movie with subtitles on.. that helped me concentrate at first

    It definitely affected my concentration big time. I struggle with it daily now. And it's been 6 years this month since my accident.

    I don’t concentrate well on TV but I can on my phone.

    I wasn’t great with concentration before but now it’s just I’m possible. It’s noise canceling heads and iPhone video stuff for me. I’m coming up on 3 years with my parietal lobe tbi
