Traumatic Brain Injury Recovery Predictions — What May be Limiting Your Recovery Process? Video Presentation

Posted by Second Chance to Live on November 21, 2014

Hello and welcome back to Second Chance to Live my friend. I am happy to see that you decided to stop by to visit with me. Thank you. Several days ago I wrote an article, in which; I shared 3 contributing factors that I believe undermine and limit the recovery process of traumatic brain injury survivors. In today’s article I would like to share that article Traumatic Brain Injury Recovery Predictions — What May be Limiting Your Recovery Process? with you in video format. I create video presentations of my articles to share the information with individuals who learn more effectively through listening and watching.

In my experience, these 3 contributing factors, in effect; kept me focused on what I could not change. These 3 contributing factors, in effect; kept me fighting against myself, instead teaching me how to champion the gains that I was and am making as an individual who is living with the impact of a traumatic brain injury. As your read, watch / listen to this article, may you be encouraged to change your focus from what you can not change to what you can accomplish with in your set of circumstances. As you read, watch / listen to this article, may you be encouraged to stop fighting against yourself and start championing the gains that you make my friend.

As you read, watch / listen to this article, may you grasp hope and move forward in your recovery process as an individual who is living with the impact of a traumatic brain injury. As you read, watch / listen to this article, may you be encouraged to run your own race.

Below is an excerpt from the written article.

“In this article I will share 3 contributing factors that I believe influence recovery predictions for individuals who sustain traumatic brain injuries. In my experience, I believe that no 2 traumatic brain injuries are the same, as no 2 individuals are the same. To give predictions concerning the recovery process of each individual is to place limits on each individual’s recovery process. I recently wrote 2 articles in which I spoke to 2 contributing factors – “struggling to accept myself when other people can’t or won’t” and “its all up in your head”. I believe that these 2 factors and their messages serve to undermine and limit the recovery process of traumatic brain injury survivors.

Let me explain. Both messages communicate to brain injury survivors that there is some thing wrong with us, that it is our fault and that is the reason why people do not accept us. The implications of these messages can lead brain injury survivors to believe that “if” they do not recover in specified ways that there is something inherently wrong with them. The implications of these messages also serve to set brain injury survivors up to fail. What I mean by setting up brain injury survivors to fail is that the brain injury survivor can be led to believe that if they do not meet specific “criteria” that demonstrate recovery gains, then they are not “recovering”. Brain injury survivors may subsequently become frustrated and disheartened in their recovery process because of these messages. For many years, I remained frustrated and disheartened.

For many years I found myself frustrated and disheartened because I bought into the 2 message that set me up to believe there was some thing wrong with me, that it was my fault and that I was the reason why people did not accept me. These messages undermined my capacity to recover, because I didn’t know any better.”
