there are two sentences I can't understand while I read a book. It is about brain injury. Please help!
- The catastrophic effect of my injury was such that I was shattered and then remolded by the experience, and I emerged from it a profoundly different person with a different set of convictions, values, and priorities.
-> If I remove such that - emerged from it, then it says the catastrophic effect of my injury was a profoundly different person and it doesn't make sense to me. Either, I emerged from it a profoundly different person doesn't make sense.
- On his journey, Linge learned how his injured brain affected his behaviour, he relearned many skills, and he learned to compensate for "the impairments his changed brain" imposed on him.
-> The impairments his changed brain? What is this list of nouns and what does "imposed" mean here?
Thank you in advance!
