Many survivors experience forms of irritability after a brain injury. It's not surprising. But irritability, angst, agitation, and frustration, no matter what you call them, can turn a person's daily life upside down. It not only affects the survivor, who must personally deal with it, but it also impacts the lives of family members and friends who are caring for the survivor.

Let's talk about dealing with irritability after brain injury.


Every TBI survivor and caregiver has encountered a fork in the road that has diverted his or her life-plan. A car accident, a fall from the roof, doing one more chin-up, or a door literally slamming one in the face are just some causes of traumatic brain injury. College plans, walking down the aisle in the perfect dress, or the coveted job quickly slip from reality as dreams turn to struggle. These unexpected life-happenings that divert one from his or her chosen path in life can be devastating. But as Yogi Berra once said, "If you come to a fork in the road, take it." Life is all about choices!
