As in.... going to the bathroom by yourself, or feeding yourself, or walking on your own, first words, etc... I know every brain injury is different but I would love to hear from all you ABI/TBI survivors who had to “start over”, as in infancy wise.

I agree every TBI is definitely different. My daughter had her accident 2018 and we are still not very far in recovery. I mean we are making progress, but not how I expected. Mind you we have had several setbacks with insurance, more surgeries since we’ve been home (2/2019). We just had one on 3/19/21 and the shunt is off due to surgery. So backwards we go again, but I know that we will get there. Just continue to have faith.
About 6 months for me after being in a coma for 3 weeks. Had to learn how to do everything again. Luckily i was in a good hospital/ rehab environment that had every kind of therapy possible. I still have issues 20 years later, don’t get me wrong, but it does get better, slowly. Best of luck!
