Developing the ability to multi-task with a brain injury is possible

I’ve heard, that while the damage to my brain was significant, that changes can be worked on, and with focus, achieved. A few years ago, when my aunt would basically tell everyone other than who was speaking, to be quiet, I became determined to improve.

Going to a restaurant wasn't really possible back then, because of the many different sounds, and I'd get distracted, that I'd not be able to talk to someone. I'm not fully sure what I did, but I did, and with focus.
I’m typing this with my earpiece in, listening to the radio, and the TV is on at the other end of the room. However, I’m focussing on what I’m typing, both visually and thought-concentration.

With focus, and determination, anything’s possible. Yes, my brain injury poses a challenge, but with focus, I’ll go all the way, and then some.

Actions speak louder than words

Doing something for someone, without being asked, is usually somewhat insulting.
I used to think that I show that I'm useless, and didn't correct them when they simply assumed that, which was bad. I'm trying to adjust my thinking to that they simply don't know, and are trying their best. I honestly don't know what's the best way to tell people that.
On the whole, it's hard to say "what's right", because how it's received is like the injury itself, in that it's unique to the individual. I've basically gotten used to accepting the fact that people want to help, so if they want to do something that I know I can do myself, I don't do anything, and say thank you. If I objected, or acted badly, then that person might change from wanting to help, to someone who'd walk on by, thinking that they'd be annoyed.
