I felt like I was having memory problems, hearing problems, mobility problems, and then to get actual assessments so I could tell where I was, it was stress-relieving actually... To know that a lot of my memory problems are just from not paying attention and not so much actual actual brain problems from playing football. So, it was really nice to just get an unbiased opinion and speak to professionals about my brain, about my body and about my mental health. It was very helpful.
There were things that I didn’t need to worry about, my MRIs came back generally positive as far as my brain which was a huge stress relief. But I was also able to point out the mobility issues that were affecting my life. So my back is hurting this way, my knees are hurting this way, and then meet with a physical therapist. They give you a plan as to how to mitigate those problems so your life is easier and more enjoyable, and also help you not focus so much energy on "my knee is hurting", but focus on how to make your knee feel better.
