Hi, my brother was involved in a RTA 7 years ago at the age of 18. He received brain damage which has only recently come to light after medical examinations. He has changed so much and finds it hard in social situations which means me and him don't talk very much. He also gets very tired and doesn't seem to express emotion which makes it even harder to bond as brothers.
I was 15 when this all happened and now i've matured i've come to realise to extent of the situation and it's only just started to effect me emotionally. It feels like i've lost a brother but I haven't (if anyone understands that?). I have bad anxiety and horrible thoughts about the situation.
I've taken the first step to get counselling at my university but I'm skeptical how good it'll be.
I was just wondering if anyone else my age (21) or has had family reletives that have been through a similar experience and how they coped/what they did
Thank you for your time
