Hello and welcome back to Second Chance to Live my friend. Yesterday I presented Part 1 and Part 2 of this article in video format. Today, I would like to present the last 2 parts of the article series in video format, Part 3 and Part 4.
Below is an excerpt from Part 3 of the article:
“The impact of increased stress and sensory overload may result in increased fatigue, impulsivity and misunderstood behavior. Ongoing stress and sensory overloads adversely impact the brain injury survivor’s immune system — thus making the brain injury survivor more susceptible to infection and becoming sick. I can attest to this reality. Consequently, the brain injury survivor needs to pay special attention when they experience ongoing anxiety and stress during the holiday season.
With the awareness the brain injury survivor can take steps to practice healthy self-care to reduce their stress and anxiety. Please read my 3 part article Traumatic Brain Injury, Fatigue, Anxiety, Anguish and Depression for healthy self-caring suggestions.
As hustle and bustle contributes to stress and anxiety during the holiday season, so can family expectations contribute to increased stress and anxiety. These expectations can be linked to repressed disappointments and resentments from past Thanksgiving’s, Christmas’s and New Years’s get together’s with family. With increased anxiety and stress, abusive behavior may be exhibited by family members. These behaviors can be the result of familiar family system roles.”
