How long did it take me to recover from my brain injury?

Two days ago, I was sitting in a coffee house with my boyfriend Felix, my sister and brother-in-law, and a few friends.


We toasted and wished each other a "Happy New Year!".


"And, most importantly, for all of us to stay healthy," said my sister.


One of my friends, whom I hadn't seen for over a year, asked me if there was any improvement in my condition.


I felt a bit agitated since I'm not particularly eager to talk about my disability, especially among friends.


"No, it's about the same," I answered.

I don't need reminders that some of my neurons are gone.

"But you told me that there was some improvement," Felix interrupted.


"Yes," I thought to myself. "I told you, but I don't want to discuss it with the whole world!"


Felix's sad and worried expression almost made me cry.
