Hi all. I had a traumatic head injury many years ago (1990) when I was 16 - I got hit by a speeding car and was knocked unconscious. I did recover in the hospital that same night and was discharged (with a few stitches in my head) the following day, but I have never recovered from what happened to me.
I have never been able to work out if it is brain damage, or the psychological effects of being hit, but I have struggled ever since with the trauma, stress and anxiety. It was never followed up at the time, nobody would listen to me, but even now I have problems. I can't sleep, I cry a lot, I have nightmares and have never been able to move on.
Does anyone else have similar experiences?
