Hi Idaho, welcome. Don't worry about bringing us down that's what we are here for. My TBI was over 18 months ago; I wish I would have found the forum sooner. Check out the TBI/PCS forum (tamiloo's link above), that's where a lot of us TBI survivors hang out.
Like you I don't remember my accident or much about the time I spent in ICU, but I'm grateful to the 1st responders and surgeons and other doctors who saved my life. I do recall the daily therapy, it was exhausting but that and time has (mostly) healed the deficits from my TBI. Best to you on your recovery journey.
What Happened: On November 29, 2010, I was walking across the street and was hit by a light rail commuter train. Result was traumatic brain injury and multiple fractures (pelvis, ribs, skull). Total hospital stay was two months, one in ICU followed by an additional month in neuro-rehab. Upon hospital discharge, neurological testing revealed deficits in short term memory, executive functioning, and spatial recognition.
Today: Neuropsychological examination five months post-accident indicated a return to normal cognitive functioning, and I returned to work approximately 6 months after the accident. I still deal with periodic depressed moods but for the most part glad to be alive and looking forward to the rest of my life.
