Hey Brains! In case you are wondering, a TBI is a Traumatic Brain Injury. I was a pedestrian walking across the street (in a crosswalk) when I was hit by a car. My head went through the windshield and I won bc I’m alive.
Many of my TBI symptoms are Very similar to ADHD symptoms. I’m still learning how things that are very difficult for me are basically ADHD. The car accident was almost 8 years ago and I’m 40yo, so I guess you can say I was diagnosed as an adult?
This is extremely hard for me to deal with bc my clients think I’m a complete mess and flaky as hell. My family doesn’t even “get it” bc they don’t understand how I can be a lawyer but can’t remember to take dinner out of the oven before it burns or pay bills on time.
I know everyone here has struggles and I also SO happy & relieved to “be” somewhere that everyone isn’t angry and disappointed in me and constantly judging me. THANK YOU for creating this forum and thank you to everyone who’s here!
