There are varying degrees of the affects of brain injury. Even though you can remember your best friend's name in middle school with your current brain injury, remembering what you had for dinner yesterday or what medication you took two hours ago may prove to be more of a challenge. There are three types of brain injury: immediate, short term and long term. Depending on what type of brain injury you have will dictate what you remember.
Immediate memory loss means that life will be so difficult for you. You can remember what happened yesterday, but will not remember that you asked the same question over and over until your loved one loses his or her patience with you and tells you to just stop asking that question.
Short term memory loss is also pretty traumatizing. You know what you just said to someone but you can't remember what time the meeting is that you set yesterday. You can remember everything about your past but can't remember that you set a coffee date with your friend yesterday.
Long term memory loss means that you remember your coffee date from yesterday and you know that you just ate dinner, but you aren't sure about what your kids did when they were in high school.
