What is a brain injury like? It’s not like a broken leg. It’s not like most other medical conditions or diseases. It’s not getting old and experiencing “senior moments”. It is very different although many people look at it as “oh, you’ll get over it” or “I have that too, it’s what happens when you age.”
A brain injury, whether from trauma, stroke, aneurysm, lack of oxygen or other cause, happens quite suddenly – out of the blue. You are fine; everything works; your mind is active and full of ideas and dreams and thoughts; you walk about without a problem. You can speak and comprehend what someone is saying while you cook or do something else. You read, watch TV, drive, cook, solve problems, make decisions….. Most likely you don’t think about your brain at all but it is what is making those things all possible.
