I was in a catastrophic car accident in 2015 and among many other injuries, I suffered a TBI and have not been the same since. Every day is a new struggle with persistent dizziness, fatigue, a lurch to the left sometimes whenI walk and it feels like I have Bobblehead. Bright lights, noise and crowds having divergent conversations give my brain an overload and it feels like my head swells to two times it's size, tinnitus starts and I have trouble focusing my eyes. Sometimes I see a jagged halo where I must rest and drink caffeine. A silent migraine it is called. Recently I began to feel drenched in sweat but my skin is dry. There are other symptoms but too many to go into here. I attempt to maintain as normal a life as possible but mental and physical fatigue always is a consideration.
