My Boyfriend Is a TBI Patient.....?

And he had damage to his frontal lobes in a accident about 4 years ago. Just wondering if anyone ever knew someone with frontal lobe damage and what their behavior was like. How did you deal with the apathy? etc

    Frontal lobe is the center of your personality and other higher cognitive functions. So apathy can be a symptom of frontal lobe damage. There are rehab programs that help with things like controlling anger outbursts -- talk to the neurologist or neurosurgeon that treated him to see if they can refer you to such a rehab program.
