Traumatic brain injury/pharmaceutical brain injury — very similar apparently

I came across an article that’s very extensive and actually quite helpful in terms of tips  and validation about the vast myriad of possible manifestations of injury after an insult to the brain.  It’s written about  the more conventional  traumatic brain injury, you know, car accidents and violent blows to the head.  You will see that  our pharmaceutical brain injuries  are very similar in terms of “symptoms” and I think sometimes we have additional really horrible  strange somatic stuff that defies articulation …
