    When you have a brain injury sometimes our ways of communication can be taken the wrong way. Let's talk about some ways to get your point across.I remember not having much of a filter after my brain aneurysm. So feelings would get hurt or if someone said something to me, my feelings would get hurt. Now, I am getting better at communicating without being rude or insulting. Emotions can run high when you feel that you have lost control. There are moments when everything drives you mad from, people talking, crowds, family, friends, etc. After a brain injury things become confusing and things can get a little difficult when trying to express ourselves. Sometimes the only way for us to communicate is for us to just say what's on our mind.


    Suggestions: Find a support group either in your area or online. This helps with connecting with others like you. Remember, this is a process and nothing changes overnight. Be patient and kind to yourself.

    Join me today and we will talk about judging. Yes! This is a subject that is touchy because we judge each other, by attacking a disability, an individuals character, our ownselves, etc.
