My name is Lauren and I am and always will be someone who has had a Traumatic Brain Injury.
There, I said it.
I’ve been in denial for 7 months. 7 months of treating this like a cut knee or a broken nail.
I haven’t been able to read anything about Brain Injury or join support groups because well 1) I was scared and 2) I didn’t think it applied to me.
Life is hard some days. I am depressed, anxious and really bloody tired (mentally and physically). I do get good days but they are fleeting and make the bad even worse. My TBI will be with me now for the rest of my life, I didn’t want to think about this. I didn’t want it to have happened to me.
But it has.
Time to start dealing with it before it consumes me.
