I have a traumatic brain injury and I am currently in my first year of college and have not decided a career. How can I decide? I cannot do many of the things I use to. I went through a lot of brain surgeries, have a titanium plate and in pain a lot and will not take narcotics so I am many years behind. Can not get anymore help from the government because I went through the brain tests and I should be able to do or learn to work. Some advice would be much appreciated. Thank you.

It depends on what you want to do and what you feel like you would be good at doing. If public speaking is hard for you, avoid law or politics. If you are not good with your hands, avoid architecture or art. If you don't like math, avoid physics, chemistry, and computer science. If all nighters are tough, avoid medicine. However, if you feel like you enjoy or are good at any of the things I just mentioned, then go for it. Remember that no matter who you are and what you do, there will be obstacles. Start slow and start small, but try out a lot of things, and eventually you'll know what you want to do.
Hello! You should start by thinking what you love to do? What are you passionate about? Due to your injury it might be a bit more difficult to start but remember no one has an easy journey. We all have obstacles to overcome, but if we have passion for what we do, it should not be that difficult to achieve. Brainstorm what you like to do, what you are good at, make sure that the career you choose is what you are passionate about. Think about waking up in and wanting to go to your job. Those that are passionate about their careers do not see their jobs as job, they see it as a hobby. I wish the best in your journey.
