My TBI Journey: I can't eat!
Weekly Zoom meeting with my nutritionist today.
I just love her!
Following her program has been so helpful!
Nutrition is Sooooooo important for Brain Injury Recovery!!
I literally forgot how to eat in the beginning!
And at first I would beat myself up about it, I mean how do you forget how to eat??!!
I could physically eat but I couldn't remember how to prepare food, how to put foods together or figure out if I was hungry.
I would look at all the food in my fridge and have no idea what I was supposed to do.
Weird, I know!
It was so frustrating and gave me so much anxiety around food, causing me to not eat.
I was embarrassed and frustrated that I couldn't figure this out on my own.
But the one thing I have learned through this whole process is, it is okay to reach out for help!
I don't have to do this alone, it's okay to have someone support and guide me through it!
That there is a tremendous amount of strength in asking for help.
Now Im eating on a regular basis.
The best part, she will NOT put you on a diet!!
She helps you figure out what foods are right for you and teaches you how to eat again with a brain injury.
She helps you come up with your own diet plan!
If you have a brain injury and need help with your nutrition and diet, I highly suggest you reach out to her!
