What could cause a brain injury survivor to feel lonely?

Someone who suffers a brain injury may experience myriad and very serious effects. On this blog, we have written about some of the emotional issues that can result from brain injuries. Depression is a common symptom among those with brain injuries. Along with depression may come feelings of isolation and loneliness.

But what factors might contribute to a brain injury survivor feeling lonely? Here are a few things that may cause feelings of loneliness:

  • After suffering a brain injury, survivors often feel fatigued. They may lack the energy to socialize or engage in activities they previously enjoyed.
  • Some survivors are unable to work or drive a car. It can be difficult for them to get out to do things or visit friends.
  • Brain injury survivors can sometimes feel very self-conscious about their condition. They may even harbor fears of rejection.
  • Survivors may find themselves becoming very irritable with others. They may avoid being around family or friends for fear of saying or doing something regrettable.

Brain injuries can happen in any number of ways. For example, car accidents are a common cause. A person may also suffer a brain injury due to medical negligence when receiving care from a doctor.

As we pointed out in this post, those who suffer brain injuries can endure emotional hardships. They may experience serious physical problems as well. Brain injury survivors need understanding and support from their family and friends. They may also require expensive long-term care and treatment.

If one of your family members ever suffers a brain injury due to the negligent actions of another, you may wish to contact an Arizona attorney. The attorney may be able to offer guidance and advice on how to best pursue compensation.
