Feeling hopeless after TBI
My vehicle was struck by a drunk driver on New Year’s Eve this year. As a result, I suffered bilateral subarachnoid hemorrhage. I was forced to resign from my third year of law school. At present, my sleep patterns are a disaster, depression is difficult to manage, headaches occur frequently and impair my speech, my memory is sketchy at best, and I am constantly battling fatigue which has left me pretty much homebound.
I am beginning to feel that I will never make re-entry into life because the effects of TBI are wreaking havoc on my existence!!! The doctors keep telling me to take medication and rest. However, I cannot understand how that will help me to recover the life I was living.
