SHOULD I STAY OR SHOULD I GO?
A very interesting, provocative article is on the brainline.org site. It addresses the issue of spouses who face the changes in their relationship with their partner after a TBI (or any other disability, really). This is a rarely discussed issue, but a very important one. It can/does change the tone of a relationship, with a spouse becoming caregiver, overshadowing the spousal relationship.
This site (http://brainline.org) is great. They have a lot of valuable information for those living with brain injury and their families, friends, caregivers. Respite care is very important and also rarely addressed. Arranging for respite care is an important way for families and those around the injured person, as well as the injured person themselves, to take a break from the stresses of living day to day with the newfound limitations and changes to life.
The same site has an interesting article addressing children, education and brain injury. In general, this is a wonderful tool for families, friends, caregivers and those who are living with brain injury.
