Hello I'm not sure where to start. I know that im not the only one that has felt so utterly alone in their own life. I have found myself begging for my life back. I know I am blessed because my husband can get around physically, and can communicate. My husband retired Jan 2013 he asked me to quit my job and stay home with him, this sure isnt what we had planned. Since his accident we mostly just sit around the house, and I cry alot. Bill sleeps alot, and has mood swings , something as small as too much mayo on his sandwich can start the yelling. I keep telling myself that he can't help it but it doesnt stop the hurt. I avoid taking too friends and family because I have a hard time keeping my emotions in check. My daughter has decided I need to get out without him at once a week. I get mad at me when I cry and feel like Im feeling sorry for my self. Sorry for rambling on.
You are not alone and I know how you feel you do need to get out and try to find a life also. We have suffered with this for the last 2 years and I finally got counseling and it has helpled with my own guilt hang there know you are not alone and there are people there who understand.
I Thank you for the hope that some will actually be kind again to speak with me.
I have similar situation however I'm, the one with tbi and am utterly alone. I can really think that we could help each olther. Can we be friends?
Thank you for sharing. I feel the same way. My husband has severe tbi and getting out and doing something for yourself makes me feel so much better. I was always a crier but since his accident I have not been able to cry much. Our kids are very young and I feel like I always have to be strong for them. And then if I am sad or upset, my husband feels bad about it and starts to worry. So I feel like I have to be strong for everyone. Keep posting- we are here for you.
Thank you all so very much. Yes Daylight I try very hard not to cry in front of him because it does sometimes upset him. I miss the old him so very much. I am great full thst our kids are grown, I cant imagine trying to raise our kids during this time. My heart and prayers go out to you.
