The Power of Words

“Whilst you are not defined by your brain injury, your life may have been. Just work within the constraints of your TBI and around it, so that we never become a ‘victim’ and are not seen as a victim of circumstances, nor have the mindset of a victim; but rather a ‘battler’…and perhaps even ‘a champion of hope’ to others ‘out there’.”

Perception of Self after Brain Injury

A Brain Injury Life

Lately I’ve been wondering whether brain injury really changed the person I am or if it just added a new layer to my old self.  It may be impossible to articulate and probably unanswerable. Obviously, an injury physically changes how the brain works and directly causes a host of problems—physical pain, cognitive deficits, and the loss of identity (e.g. the tendency to ask existential questions like this). But cause and effect are not always clear. There are many problems that could be organic or could just as well be new incarnations of innate character traits.

I’ve gotten used to the idea that everything different in my life since my TBI has either been caused by the brain injury or what I learned in my neuropsychological rehabilitation. But what if there are fewer changes than I imagined? Am I still who I was but with some parts missing? That would explain…
