In 1999, my husband had a major car wreck...head on collision caused by a drunk driver driving down a freeway the wrong way. He had traumatic brain damage and was placed on disability. After about 4 months of recuperation he thought he could go back to work and so he attempted to do so. After about one month, it was obvious that because of the pain from the physical injuries and the fatigue that was involved with just making it through the day he couldn't concentrate and solve intellectual problems. He resigned and we had to go into the SS office and explain the situation. There was not a problem to continue on full disability. Maybe it was because it was very evident that he had major physical disabilities as well as cognitive disbilities. Anyhow, the best to you in rehabilitating.
