How Will a Chicago Brain Injury Affect My Ability to Think?

A common side effect of a Chicago brain injury or head trauma is difficulty thinking. Depending on the location and the severity of the injury, the damage may be temporary or permanent and range from partial to total impairment.

The following are just a few examples as to how these problems you may exhibit in your daily life:

  1. Difficulty holding a conversation in a crowded place that has many distractions, such as a shopping mall or restaurant.
  2. Inability to juggle multiple tasks at once, such as listening to a lecture while simultaneously taking notes.
  3. Problems processing new information, such as when a friend is sharing a story about a recent vacation to Chicago. The friend may need to break the story up into multiple short statements instead of one long piece, speak very slowly, and repeat portions as necessary for you to understand.
  4. Lack of short term memory, such as remembering what restaurant you ate dinner at the night before.
  5. Difficulty learning new things, such as a foreign language or a math lesson. The lack of short term memory combined with difficulty processing the new information may require you to re-learn the same concepts several times before truly understanding.
  6. Inability to plan, such as when organizing a Chicago birthday party.
