Dear Annie: I am a 36-year-old man. I was in an accident 25 years ago and suffered a traumatic brain injury. It was tough growing up. When I was 23, I moved out on my own. This is when the real trouble began.
First, I started drinking, and then I abused my medication. In 2002, I wrecked my car while driving intoxicated. The judge told me to go to a brain injury rehabilitation facility and get my life back in order. I started my first one six months later. I am in my fourth one right now.
