I would absolutely love it if I could have developed any other injury/illness instead of a TBI. My injury affects every damn thing in my god forsaken life. Many might say, “but you are alive.” Yeah okay, I guess this is what hell feels like.
The advancements in hospital technology and care have exceeded expectations. For example, a life altering event like mine back in the 70s or 80s might have resulted in death but with the improvements in knowledge and technology these past 30 years it allows for more pain and anguish to those individuals whom continue to suffer. I would not be doing my education justice if I did not address the other point of view from the other side. For example, we see in simple to complex illnesses that have been cured or treated and ultimately allowing those individuals to return back to a normal life.
With the increase in medical treatment is directly correlated with the survives happiness. As care increases then joy in a person who survived decreases.
For all the researchers out there, do you concur or disagree with the statement as the medical community increases one’s knowledge to help individuals who have suffered similar problems the overall happiness/joy of living decreases. I also am curious to see what are the numbers of post event result in suicide. It feels like I am ultimately a walking time bomb.
