The Stages of Brain Injuries

Part of understanding how to cope with a brain injury involves understanding the stages a person goes through:

  • Denial – there’s no problem; I don’t feel injured
  • Realization – oh, oh I am in trouble!
  • Uncertainty – living in “the fog”
  • Anger and Frustration- excessive pain, confusion, and bewilderment
  • Recovery – adapting to and redirecting your brain
  • Impatience – I’m feeling fine, so why aren’t I fine yet?
  • Adapting to the new reality-coping with life in a new found way

Learning to recognize the signs of these stages and the strategies for dealing with each is what Brain Navigators does in one on one coaching.
