Are there any of you who have implemented a stricter eating habit for yourselves and your TBI family members?

I don’t mean Necessarily a diet to lose weight. I’m talking about an overall diet for health. Especially TBI health. Although, I will say that my son has gained weight since his TBI. He’s always had a tendency to love to eat, now he seems to not have as much control over what he is eating. I’m looking into healthier alternatives. I keep reading that the Mediterranean diet is a very good option. I’d love to hear your stories.

Can occupational therapy help with someone who has vision issues?

I sustained a severe TBI over 20 years ago. I have just recently started to advocate for myself on different doctors and in helping things that I’ve been struggling with for 20 years. Because as you may know 20 years ago they didn’t have the support available to TBI patients like they do now. I have been to a vision therapist who says he could help me and I was feeling like he could with the exercises and the things he was doing with me on a weekly basis. However he does not take insurance at all, and he is very very expensive. So I have to look into different avenues. Someone had suggested occupational therapy.
