Sorry to hear your having such a difficult time. Have you been tested for Lyme’s disease? If you have and it came back negative, get tested again. Best of luck!

Sorry for all you are going through. It makes it more complicated when you love someone, as you obviously love your husband. This is a hard place to be stuck in for anyone. Please think first and foremost of your safety and sanity. Rely on those around you for help. Maybe your husband should spend some time staying with his family to give both of you a break and a real chance to think about the current situation.
Thank you for sharing what you are dealing with in your life. I can only imagine what a roller coaster ride this has been for you. The situation raises a few red flags for me. First, your boyfriend should have been responding to you while you were on your trip. Secondly, if he and the past girlfriend were doing nothing wrong she would be fine with her husband knowing. I would tell her husband because his wife is emotionally cheating on him. They need to do some work in their relationship. It is not your job to keep secrets. It is also not your job to babysit your boyfriend’s behavior. I’m sure you’re a lovely woman who can do much better for herself in a different relationship.
I agree. The hardest part for me has been learning to take the time to do it every day. Most days I get it done. I absolutely make sure to journal when I have had a big life event. We just went on a short vacation to South Dakota and I detailed it every night in my journal. My family now looks at it too when recounting what a great time we had! Taking that into account, I guess my tbi can actually be helpful even to others!!
Thanks for checking us out and reading the posts! I appreciate your input. I can only speak for myself, but I’m sure others have also, and can say that I have spent a lot of time talking with my doctors. The hard part is that we all heal differently and no one is guaranteed a predictable outcome. I journal everyday and this has helped me to see what progress I have made. I started journaling as a way to “remember” my life. I have seen some healing and progress but am still saddened by how affected by my tbi I remain. Some days are better than others. If I write things down it helps me to remember and keeps me on track during my day. I am the poster child for sticky notes, calendars, and journals!! Thanks again for sharing your thoughts!
Thank you for sharing your story! I am often amazed at what a person can go through because of a brain injury. As an adult, I feel that, our symptoms are viewed differently or may not be seen for what they really are. I’m so glad that you stayed strong and got through some very dark times. Love and support from family can be so very helpful. Belief in a higher power also carries me on a daily basis. I spend a good portion of my day “talking” to God. I try to be thankful for what I have and to not spend too much time grieving for what I have lost. Some days that’s easier than others. The last sentence of your post is so encouraging!
Thank you for sharing this with all of us! I love that we are getting different suggestions and ideas as to what has helped to heal and cope with tbi’s. The article about your friend is very inspiring and can speak to all of us. I have a HORRIBLE singing voice but if it would help to recover from my tbi, I’m willing to give it a try. I think I’ll start out just singing in the car or the shower!
Kelly, Thanks so much for sharing! I find all of our situations are similar and different all at the same time. I’m glad you shared what’s worked for you. I think we can teach each other so much while giving a voice to this recovery process. I’m very eager to learn more about the CBT that has helped you so much. I will be checking into it. I full heartedly agree with your last sentence. Yes! There is hope!
