I’ve heard, that while the damage to my brain was significant, that changes can be worked on, and with focus, achieved. A few years ago, when my aunt would basically tell everyone other than who was speaking, to be quiet, I became determined to improve. Going to a restaurant wasn’t really possible back then, because of the many different sounds, and I’d get distracted, that I’d not be able to talk to someone. I’m not fully sure what I did, but I did, and with focus.
I’m typing this with my earpiece in, listening to the radio, and the TV is on at the other end of the room. However, I’m focussing on what I’m typing, both visually and thought-concentration.
With focus, and determination, anything’s possible. Yes, my brain injury poses a challenge, but with focus, I’ll go all the way, and then some.
