How to Work with a TBI Victim - Even if They Don’t Realize They’re Injured

Imagine that you have been involved in a car wreck. Your vehicle was totaled, and you suffered what you believed at the time were moderate injuries - whiplash, a thin wrist fracture and sprained shoulder. Your recollection of the crash is foggy, but after a few weeks of recovery you feel that you are mostly back to your old self…

Yet, something isn't quite right, especially in the way the people in your life are treating you. They seem to be looking at you differently. They talk to you differently. They ask if you remember things that didn't happen, conversations that never took place and they suddenly seem to be treating you as though you are a different person. You're frustrated, and you feel drained by these interactions, so you eventually start withdrawing from the people around you, which only makes them more concerned.

Knowing how to identify brain injuries and how to interact with someone that has suffered a brain injury are key to bridging the divide between a victim and their families. Understanding the problem will put the challenges they face into context and make it easier to move forward and create an environment in which a victim can begin recovery.
