So my brain took quite the bump many years ago. I recognise many of Ashleys traits and can see your frustrations.
IF we are dealing with a troll than they are just one of hundreds of people who hunt out groups on the internet to attract sympathy or just cause mischief. Some are amazingly bizzare even attempting to out cripple the cripples.
IF we are dealing with a genuine TBI than unfortunately from what I'm seeing Ashley isn't yet able to absorb and retain what we have been telling them online. Something that can leave an immensely dark and bitter taste in your mouth when you can't get left to understand right even though you retain the ability to recognise that everyone else functions just fine.
In this case really we are not best suited to support them as you need to be consistent in what you practice on and off line to help you develop ways to cope. But that won't stop them asking.
What does this mean for us? Well we suck it up buttercup. Either closing to ignore their posts or choosing to carry on chatting away.
