There have been articles about ‘what not to say to a TBI survivor.’ Things like, “You look fine to me.” Or, “You don’t look like you have a brain injury.” So, I was wondering, what advice would you give a ‘normal’ person who wants to communicate respectfully and appropriately? I’ve come up with a few…
Take your time. When a TBI survivor is trying to remember something.
Rest when you need to, it’s ok. Fatigue so does a number on survivors!
I know you are doing the best that you can. General affirmation of a TBI survivor’s desire to do well.
So, tell me, what would you say? What words of affirmation or understanding would you like to hear?
“A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in settings of silver.” Proverbs 25:11
