My brother has a traumatic brain injury.... And he too has no filter. Can be awkward and/or really mean sometimes but has no clue because he also doesn't have a great sense of social awareness anymore. People tend to not realize how sensitive the brain can be and how big of an impact even small injuries can have on a life.

Best of luck in your continued recovery

I don't know any more than you about OP, but I am a "caregiver" to my brother who suffered a TBI 9 months ago (age 23). He is mostly independent but the part of his brain effected impairs his logic and reasoning skills (among other things) so he is a bit if a hazard to himself and potentially others. Simple things he can handle, like cooking in the oven or I can have him call to set up his own doctors appointments. But more complex things, like using a knife to cut stuff or dealing with (medical) bill collectors he needs help dealing with.

If you do get active with awareness and support stuff I'd totally be down for helping! I'm looking into getting involved with stuff for TBI/ABI because of everything we've experienced with my brother.
