Brain injury is unpredictable in its consequences. Brain injury affects who we are, as well as the ways we think, act and feel. In fact, it can change everything about us in only a matter of seconds.
The most important things to remember about living with brain injury include:
- A person with a brain injury is a person first.
- No two brain injuries are exactly the same.
- The effects of a brain injury are complex and vary greatly from person to person.
- The effects of a brain injury depend on such factors as cause, location, and severity.
