  3. Aw!!! I relate to this so much!!! I also had a head injury via epilepsy as a teenager! My mom just kept making excuses for me and it drove me crazy. Finally, when I was older, I asked her why she didn’t push me and tell me I could do it but I think she noticed the overall toll it was taking on me psychologically.
