Accidents happen. Brain injury happens.
Unsolicited. Unanticipated. Unwelcome.
In the blink of an eye, everything changes; nothing is as it was before.
How will you identify brain injury if it happens to you or to someone you love? How will you cope with it? What resources will you need? Where will you find them?
Here you will find information for brain injury survivors, family members, caregivers, professionals and others. The Brain Injury Association of Massachusetts is here to help.
If you or a loved one was near the blasts at the Boston Marathon and are suffering from any of the following symptoms, seek immediate medical attention, and then call the Brain Injury Association of Massachusetts for information and resources at (800) 242-0030.
Symptoms include: headache, fuzzy or blurred vision, nausea or vomiting, dizziness, sensitivity to noise or light, balance problems, confusion, fatigue, difficulty remembering new information or thinking clearly, insomnia, sleeping more than normal, irritability or emotional changes in behavior, and difficulty concentrating.
