Exclamation Life did 360!!!help

I am new here!I had been in a high speed car accident over a year ago and been to 15 different doctors and to hell and back in between!I went from fully functionable 26year old to a bed ridden not able to talk for months and now dementia that is BAD that I had to withdraw from school!

I used all my PIP and the other party that hit me will not pay nothing till I settle!I have the last 3 doctors that validated I have a very bad case of PCS and I have to under go 4 different therapies from neurocognitive, speech, physical (balance), and psychological.

I have every symptom and some under this condition and now some other impairments due to this long process!I am at my lowest in life and the doctors tell me I can get better but I need to work on me and positive for the the therapies to work!

I am having problems digesting this and dealing with the intense symptoms!Im lost and I hope I can be found!MY LIFE HAS DONE A 360 HELP!!

Look at it this way, you now have people to talk to... I've been living with various PCS symptoms for many years and have had improvement, no doubt. I understand how difficult and confusing this can be, exasperating too. Hang in there and work hard at your various therapies. Just keep going and I'm sure you will see improvement, just try not to get frustrated with the process, and read as much as you can.
Best wishes,
P.S. This site is mentioned in the links section of this site and was the first site I found. It is full of information: *edit* (this is my third post and they won't allow links until i get to ten posts)
