Thanks for posting this, Debbie. I also wanted to chime in that these signs may also apply to people who have incurred head trauma: falling off a bike, engaged in football or boxing, car accident, slip on the stairs or the ice. When the head is hit hard or repeatedly, brain damage may occur which limits cognitive brain function: trouble keeping time, multitasking, making decisions, taking initiative, following through on tasks, even the ability to interact or deal in a large group.
