Frustration, confusion and learning how to deal with those actions after a Traumatic Brain Injury.  Good Luck!  But there can be adjustments made, as we attempt to become "more pleasant" to be around (if we can be around them!).  TBI's take your emotions, paranonia and distress, mix them in the same 'bag' only to of the shoulder.  Folks get confused, of our actions, words and ideas (which are usually screwy at best) when stimuli takes control.  We talk and talk, say things I doubt any one but the TBI speaker really understands.  We are blessed around Indy, and its past time to share lesson's learned.  BICS - brain injury coping skills.  Now beginning to be offered world wide, I was of the first (and continuous) 'students' to graduate from the BICS - and and as learning to be a PEER Mentror was enrolled in several (6) more of the 20 week course of understanding.  Caregivers by our side, we discuss, understand and learn ways (beyond strategys) to Cope With Every Day Life, at least at times.   Are there slip ups?  I don't know, how was YOUR morning?  Did your TBI as get in the way of understanding?  

Myself?  Every day, all day long, even with traveling the path taught by the Dr.. Lisa Thompson Foundation 'Family Center' by Dr. Samantha Backhaus and others.  I'll post some conversations of BICS, and probably touch on the 'new' Social Skills with a TBI research program.  Group said I could.  Listen in as various folks with a TBI discuss, learn and adjust.  Why?  Trust me, there is NO WHERE ELSE ON EARTH you can listen in.  See, my social and coping skills aquired permission for such an offering.  Learn. share but grab a pencil,  to make "Mental Notes on Paper".   Or, as my ol' buddy Landon Walker would sing "Give Me Love, And A Little Kindness"....
