What a sad story of undeserved problems thrust upon you. Matriarchs ( and pariarchs ) can find it an additional problem that they are expected to be perfect and cheerful and deal with everyone else's problems, and never to have any themselves, but one should reject such foolosh expectations of others, and give one's own needs priority. Similarly, don't be embarrassed to say you received a brain injury - it wasn't your fault at all, and may help others to be more appropriately sympathetic and helpful.
I would have expected, with clearly defined goals and a counsellor competent in the most verified as efective current method, CBT, 25 sessions should have made a substantial difference.
Waiting for the outcome of the RAF case will of course be stressful, and I hope the result is useful for you.
I have some personal experience of the effects of a severe concussion after a car crash, and find while it's tedious, one can help somewhat by making copious notes ( now I have a note of almost everything, the problem becomes more one of finding the right note among my mountains of notes ). It may be that your anxiety about anticipating memory and comment problems, makes those actually worse than they need be, so learning relaxation will help that.
And now the task becomes one of competing with yourself, to do better than expected at tasks, rather than competing with anyone else. And this isn't a come-down, its actually what we all need to be doing
