When you feel "stuck" or begin to lose hope... when you become frustrated by your symptoms... when you become overextended and overexhausted and overwhelmed... be kind to yourself.
Living with brain injury is so challenging. It's so difficult when you can't do what you want to be able to do. When you can't just... live your life. When every day is challenging. When every outing becomes an ordeal. It's so hard to just get through each day.
But you get through. You wake up the next day. You press on. You're a survivor, and you have lived through SO MUCH.💚
Next time you're tempted to put yourself down, remind yourself just how far you've come. Be kind to yourself.
You are not alone on this journey! -Cristabelle Braden / #HopeAfterHeadInjury
