How a brain injury changes family life

When one member of your family suffers a brain injury, the immediate healing may just be the first step. Even after physical healing is complete, that person may never seem like the same person again.

A brain injury is very serious, and it impacts every person in unique ways. It can lead to changes in mood, changes in behavior and even full-fledged personality disorders.

A few things that family members often say are:

  • "I don't feel like I even know them anymore."
  • "They just do not seem like the same person I used to love."
  • "Their mood swings make it impossible to know how they're going to react."
  • "They're never happy like they used to be."
  • "I feel like I am living with a stranger."

You can imagine how distressing this can be when it is a spouse or a child. This is a person you knew and loved. It is someone very close to you. They're still with you, physically speaking, but you feel like someone else has moved into your home.

In this way, a brain injury can ruin relationships and marriages. It can cause a lot of heartache in the future. It may mean that a couple has to go to counseling or even gets divorced.

The impact of that injury is far greater than the cost of medical bills or the loss of physical skills. It changes your entire life.

If you want to learn more about the results of a brain injury and your options after such a catastrophic injury, our helpful website can provide all of the information you need.
