Adults, too!

Recently, I fell while ice skating without a helmet. i blacked out for a couple of hours and woke up in the E.R. I had a "minor" TBI with small bleed. Six weeks later, I've learned that my TBI was serious although no outward signs are evident. I can walk, drive talk, socialize and most daily stuff, but limited. What I've learned is that one can heal, but it takes slowing down, real habits that limit activity and explaining to others outright what happened, so that others can be sensitive. Children and adults alike cannot bounce back so quickly. This is months-long to a year process. Thank you for this article.
