I suffered a MTBI/concussion on 12/13. I'm still not back to work or driving yet. It's an accomplishment at this point to be able to do simple tasks around the house; usually just a couple light duties and I'm done for the day. This ordeal has honestly changed my entire life. I'm not able to socialize (as I love to do) in a group because I can't handle too much noise or activity. I haven't worked,grocery shopped, dined out, driven (although I tried many times), etc., etc., etc...I've had to rely on others for transportation to doctor's appointments and I hate it. Although I have made some progress, it continues to be very slow...what's most bothersome is I can't seem to focus on all the positives in my life, like the fact that I just got married in September. I feel very let down by many family members and friends who I hoped would be there for me at a time like this -but have not.I need to try and get beyond it because it's honestly affecting my recovery. I'm extremely frustrated and sad and could use some words of encouragement.
