Betty, like most severely brain injured survivors has issues with impulsivity and impolitic speech. She just doesn’t know quite when not to express exactly what is on her mind. She gives the example of how, at least from her perception, she ruined Christmas. Betty states;”My husband and I went to his ex-wife’s Christmas morning to open up Christmas gifts and she handed me a gift and I opened it up and it was a plastic popcorn popper. I looked at it and I kinda made a smirk and I said, “you gave us this last year.”
