Concussion patients often describe feeling a sense of “renewal” or a return to their former self after their recovery is complete.
Lauren Ziaks, PT, DPT, ATC can understand this feeling completely. During the early days of her brain injury, she felt like everything was harder than it was supposed to be and just completing her daily tasks was exhausting. Once she was on the path to recovery, she could feel her old self returning. When she was finally back to her normal energetic self, she felt like a new person and so grateful for all the amazing things in life.
