Brain injury: To tell or not to tell?

Sources: Brain injury: To tell or not to tell?

 “To tell…or not to tell. That is the question!”

Interesting and good article.

Difficulties in work environment due to speed of processing info, following instructions, directions, etc. I covered this subject in a chapter of some of my books. Learnt from experience (many) along life’s often extremely difficult journey that honesty is always the best policy (if somebody doesn’t know “where you’re coming from”, how can they understand)

Thanks, m for putting it so clearly (as always)!
