After concussion – *Things people don’t get about BTI affected people*

Source: After concussion – you’re not stupid, it just feels that way

Hola amigos!! *just showing off some bilingual skills of mine* I hope all is going well. I came across this above post while I was just surfing up some facts about concussion A.K.A Brain Traumatic Injury, something that I was affected with last month due to a bicycle accident. I had several visible injuries, a metacarpal fracture and this BTI. The visible injuries seemed painful, the fracture seemed irritating but in real, my concussion was the most unbearable. It affected my life in a way I can’t describe so it’s really important that you read this above source link before you continue reading this. If you’ve ever been affected with a concussion before, you would know that this BTI can sometimes totally change you in a totally different person. Sometimes, it feels like people can’t understand you at all. For me, I feel like I’ve lost interest in many things that were once my FAVORITE. Things get a little tough sometimes even after this one or two months since the trauma. This feeling gets really nagging sometimes but that’s the thing, a person suffering from this don’t want to explain it. Thus it is really important to be a little more cautious around people suffering from BTI.

Though I am not a doctor, specialist or something, well actually I haven’t even started high school yet; but we should always be concerned about our health issues. Yes people do get a lot of attention during the first week of their trauma but then people around us take the post traumatic affects as some kind of attention seeking trick. This is hence important that if you are suffering from some kind of PTSD, feel little useless or *stupid* you shouldn’t stress yourself about people’s behavior around you. It is also important for people around us to take some precautions for example saying some things you should avoid saying to someone with a BTI:-

1. They seem fine.

2. They are getting cranky

 

3.  They are not trying hard enough to be normal again.

4. Forcig them to acknowledge the efforts being made for them.

 

5. Making them feel dependent on you.

6. They are not understanding (being stupid)                                                                                      7.They are blessed to be alive

 

Trust me you DO NOT want to say these things to someone with a brain injury but if you do, wear a helmet as a precaution or call an ambulance forehand. 

 

Are you really LIVING life?

To all the people living their lives with blood in their veins and to the ones with adrenaline mixed in their blood, Hello! Well you’re maybe wondering what do I mean by that. But well I would be lying if I said I mean absolutely nothing by that because there is a very big reason why I wrote that. First of all, people who experience adrenaline rush remember it forever, observing from my experiences of it. I can’t ever forget all those times I’ve had adrenaline rush. So yeah, when I say that there is huge difference between those people who, never take risks, never face their fears, and don’t try out things which would make them breathless and speechless and those who do everything possible to make their metabolism increase, I mean it.

I’m not someone who is always ready to go on adventures and take risks neither am I fearless. I fear a lot of things, trust me. Some months ago, I was maybe that one person on earth who feared everything. Speed, heights, water, darkness and insects. But I actually faced all these fears, with hesitation, at first but it was the most AMAZING thing. I felt like I actually LIVED all those moments I faced my fears and took risks.

We don’t know what the worst could be. So why not try? why live your life under a shell, not discovering the beauty of outside?  I feel like there’s nothing bad in trying. You NEED to live your life. Don’t let anything come in between you and the lessons you could learn on your way to your road to success because everyone wants to eat your fruit of success but no one is ever ready to share your poison of failure with you.
