Life Goes On
Don’t let TBI become the family focus, let it go, what’s done is done. Move on…
If it does become your or your families focus , the family will have trouble coping because other issues and problems will be ignored.
The family that moves on and continues to love, grow and support each other will thrive better than those who can’t.
The family member with TBI must learn to let others have their troubles and successes, just as they do.
Even though you have moved on there will be necessary reminders to keep you in check, so don’t just blow them off. One of the realities about living with a brain injury is that you may need additional check-ups, routine doctor visits, or ongoing rehabilitation. Even people who feel like they’re “back to normal” may visit a neuropsychologist for periodic testing or may incorporate various cognitive exercises into their daily routine.
