Thank you for using JustAnswer! So sorry to hear you are going through this. It must be really hard to have your level of functioning decrease after such an accident. I am wondering if during your inpatient and outpatient treatment were they treating you for mental health problems or was it physical rehab from injuries sustained. If there are mental health problems going on, I am wondering if it has to do with post traumatic stress disorder?

I'll try to give you an answer after you answer these question.
Thank you,
