Depression and Traumatic Brain Injury - Your ICBC Injury Claim
Depression is more than a minor feeling of sadness every now and then. It's perfectly normal for a person who has suffered a traumatic brain injury to feel periodically sad about all the problems which have been caused by their brain injury.
Depression is when those feelings of sadness go beyond periodic or minor intensity.
People who experience depression feel sad, lack motivation, feel fatigued, experience poor concentration and have feelings of guilt and diminished self-worth ( to name merely a few of the usual symptoms).
Sometimes people who experience depression following a brain injury try and ignore their condition and simply hope that it'll go away.
And I can tell you from having dealt with brain injured individuals for many years that ignoring depression is a seriously flawed strategy for dealing with it.
Here's the thing. Depression is usually treatable. Often appropriate treatment from a doctor or other healthcare professional can go a long way towards helping improve symptoms of depression.
And the sooner you seek treatment for depression the more likely that you'll experience improvement.
