    My Beloved boyfriend Eric suffered a TBI 3 years ago. most of his problems from it are memory issues, ( forgetting what you just told him, not remembering things he did a month or more ago) he can be unreasonable and irratable for no apparent reason. He gets irrational at times too. With his accident, he broke both his collar bones and had to be put in a medically induced coma. After he finally woke up after 3 long months ( this was before we met) he had to learn to walk again. He now walks quite well and fast but with a slight limp. He has those stop and think moments alot like " why did i come in here again?" Or with his truck " where am I going?" but all and all he does very very well. It depends on each person how they will do. He's one of the lucky ones, my baby is.

    Look up the Rancho Los Amigos Traumatic Brain Injury Cognitive-Behavioral Scale.

    I have worked with ppl that have been brain injured, due to being in vehicle accidents. From what i have seen, their personality changes.. not completely but a lot of it does. They have anger issues, cant put up with a lot of environmental stimuli, and a couple of them had cognitive impairment. They were put on medications and also took anger management courses to help them cope. They seemed to gain some insight into their anger issues which helped them a great deal and they were able to move out of the facility i work at. Unfortunately a hand full of the ppl that i have worked with, were too brain injured to live a healthy life by themselves and r in homes where they have staff working with them. Although, i dont give up hope for those few and wish that someday they will be leading a happy and fullfilling life of their own.

    if trauma(as in a blow to the head)- it can be very damaging depending on how severe and where it can leave the person a vegetable or make them retarded or just slow you a bit down at a certain thing (walking,writing. etc) or just give you a migraine or bad bump or gash on the head.

    now Traumatic (as abusive or bad imagery) its as harmful as the user takes it. there's now way of knowing the exact effect but some are depression,paranoia, also eating and sleeping disorders it usually stuff protaining to the traumatic moment anything can be traumatizing if administered to the right person at the moment.
