Understanding Brain Injuries
Although brain injuries can result in long hospitalization and severe physical impairment, the majority cause consequences that are not as obvious to observers. Cognitive impairment, personality and behavioral changes, depression and other mental health conditions, as well as chronic pain can all affect brain injury survivors and can last a lifetime. It may be impossible to return to work, or to perform at your pre-injury level. Relationships are often destroyed. Victims and loved ones can feel isolated, confused, and at a loss for what to do to move forward.
Each brain injury case is unique. The initial severity does not always determine the long-term outcome. The effects of brain injury depend largely on the part of the brain that was injured. Proper treatment of brain injuries, also plays a role. When brain injuries go undetected, the damage can continue to progress.
Brain injury symptoms can come and go. You may have good days and bad days. Some symptoms may not surface until weeks or months after injury. Other symptoms can occur, but go unnoticed. For instance, seizures are a common problem for brain injury survivors, but due to the memory loss caused by the seizures, they can go undetected if no one is around to observe them.
