Can't leave my house after accident three years ago and feeling depressed, alone and helpless
Three years ago, I was in an accident which resulted in a seizure and ever since I have been suffering from post-concussion syndrome and chronic migraine.
I was 16 at the time and this resulted in me having to drop out of college while seeing all my friends move on. At the time I didn't think it was such a big deal and that it wouldn’t be long until I would be going to university too. Due to my head injury traveling induces severe quantities of pain and dizziness so I can’t really go too far which is why I have experienced little human contact in the last three years. My friends have all moved on while I’ve been stuck here just trying not to lose my mind. The doctors don’t know when I’ll get better just eventually which is the most frustrating part.
Anyone know what I should do to make myself feel better? A part of me feels like this might just be loneliness but given how many times I’ve failed at things I’ve attempted (specifically college) in the last three years it’s probably more than that. Anyone know anything I can do at home to fill in the social aspect? I had a look at some online chat rooms and talked to some people some time back, but it ended badly, so I didn't really want to go back until now but I it’s not like it’s not an option.
Other symptoms include difficulty in concentration and insomnia which has only made things that much harder. As each day passes I keep feeling more and more secluded and sometimes I even begin to wonder whether I'll ever get over this injury as apparently some people never did recover over similar injuries and if that’s seriously the case then maybe this isn’t even worth fighting against anymore seeming I can barely even complete a test paper without a crippling headache or vomiting.
