Sometimes when I read/see things online about what others are doing/have done during tbi recovery I choke. “How can they be so good already?” “Life is NOT fair” “We can’t be THAT different.”
But then I need to bear in mind how severe my traumatic brain injury was. A brain injury can go from a bad concussion to very severe brain injury where the pathways to control everything in your body from physical to invisible (like temperature) has lost its path.
I have done well and continue to do well. I’m happy that others have got themselves sorted quickly. But I can’t help but feel slightly jealous. I know that’s wrong and I feel bad that I feel like that. But it’s natural? Is it not?
