My traumatic brain injury and mental health

.

I recently had a traumatic brain injury that has left me with long-term changes in my mental health. After the initial shock of the accident, I was faced with adjusting to a dramatically changed life. One of the hardest things for me has been processing the changes to my personality and thinking process. With time, I’ve learned how these injuries can affect your mental health, as well as what tools I needed to work through them.

I have done my best to put forward positivity and resilience in the face of challenges brought on by my injury. It has not been easy, but it is possible to move past trauma when you make an effort to overcome it. With determination and support from friends and family, I am slowly finding peace with myself as I continue this new journey of healing and self-discovery.
