How do I manage my toxic anoxia on a daily basis?

The brain damage that can result from toxic anoxia may require a long recovery and rehabilitation process, depending on the severity of the damage. Regardless of the extent of the damage, it's important to talk with specialists such as physical and occupational therapists, speech therapists, and neuropsychologists. Follow your doctors' recommendations regarding any medications or other treatments. The process can be very slow and frustrating, so talk to your therapists and psychologists to get a clear picture of what to expect. Because progress may be slow, it's important to congratulate yourself after every step you take, no matter how big or small. Remember that you can rely on the help and support of your doctors and loved ones as you go through the recovery process.
