I found myself in denial of healing for quite a long time in the first year or so after this injury.
I didn’t realize how you don’t just magically ‘heal’ or recover from a brain injury, I thought years for recovery was unrealistic, I genuinely thought I would be recovered in no more than a year! A year is a long time, right?!
Coming up to five years, and recovery has not only continued, I would say it’s starting to be more apparent every month/year! Hold on to your hope!
