Any advice on what I should do?

Since I was little I have loved sports. I grew up with them as a way of life. They are the reason I wanted to go to college and get a BA in Atheltic Training then a Masters in Physical Therapy. They are a perfect mix of sports and helping people heal and get better. I actually started to attend college for athletic training and got accepted into the program. The semester before I was supposed to start I got in a accident that caused brain damage. For the most part people dont realize I have damage. But my ability to process information ( like people talking and me actually understanding) and my speech ( like my brain is working faster then it can transmit to my mouth to speak clearly) is effected. Most people think I am just being dumb and not smart at all.

The accident happened a few years ago now. I ended up leaving college for a few years because I was constantly frusterated with my brain and why it wouldn't do what I needed. So after a break from college I decided to go to a tech school for auto body instead. Which i like, but now that I have graduated with my AAS. I am almost regretting giving up on my dream. I am having all these thoughts in my head if I should go back to college for what I really want, but I don't even know if I will be able to pass some classes because it takes me longer to learn and remember things. then I think about the fact that I would be 31/32 by the time I graduated if everything went smoothly. Is that too old to consider a degree change? Should I just stick with auto body? Is it worth putting myself even farther into debt?
