With a Brain Injury comes lessened stamina, fatigue, and well, it’s just easy to overdo it.
In Brain Injury support group, we talk about having a ‘brain budget’. Prior to our injuries, none of us had to ever budget our energies, we did what we wanted when we wanted, went where we wanted when we wanted, fatigue was not an issue.
When you’re in flight of fight mode constantly, you can guarantee some symptoms may be pronounced, migraines occur, sleeplessness is common, as is fighting the depression. This has been my experience.
