Hi, I'm new to the site and wanted to introduce myself.
I had a serious car crash almost 2 years ago and only received help with the physical effects of a serious head injury. I have gradually come to realise that I may well have a brain injury which has negatively affected my behaviour and I've lost all 'get up and go'. I worked in a high-pressure business environment and I've lost 2 contracts unexpectedly, making me wonder if I've done or said something inappropriately or of just poor overall quality. Then there's my personal relationships, but I won't go into detail there. This is a small summary and I'm sure there's more but I struggle to be comprehensive nowadays. This 'gradually realising' seems to have been confirmed when I called Headway the other day to talk about what's been happening.
I have an appointment with my GP on Tuesday to ask for a referral to a Neuro Psycologist so I hope that will be the first step toward identifying what's happening with me and finding ways of coping or working with it. I have read that it's unlikely that I'll be able to get back to being 100% and I can accept that but I need to find a way to quantify the problem and deal with it.
Apologies in advance for all of the questions I'll be asking.
