How do you identify brain damage from head trauma or from a concussion, a year after the fact?

How do you identify brain damage from head trauma or from a concussion, a year after the fact?

Possibly by MRIs: Mri technology has advanced dramatically in the last few years. Specialized sequences looking at the white fiber tracts or looking for signs of micro hemorrhages (t2-star sequences) are useful for detecting abnormalities.

Can you tell me how to handle the range my emotions, namely guilt from an unprovoked assault?

Can you tell me how to handle the range my emotions, namely guilt from an unprovoked assault?

Shame/guilt: Shame/guilt is just about the darkest emotion people can face. It presupposes that there's an audience to our alleged wrongdoings, and that devastating judgement will be passed. Something to remember is that everyone has something they feel ashamed about; it's inescapable. Find a reputable psychotherapist to speak with. Getting it off one's chest in a safe, nonjudgmental place is the first step. ...Read more
