I haven't been on the site for some time as we have been busy moving 200 miles to live by the sea on the east coast and a temporary home in between houses - a move triggered by the injury when we realised in spectacular fashion that life is just too short. We love our new surrounds and the fact that we can walk to the sea within minutes which is truly calming and spirit lifting.
For all of us, living with brain injury, our lives changed forever. Christmas is different to the ones we knew prior to brain injury but can hopefully still be enjoyed just in a different way.
We continue to adjust to our new normal, forever thankful for my hubby's significant recovery since June 2012 and always learning to cope with the rest. Our new GP reminded us how lucky we are to have made such a recovery in our first visit to him. We try to remember that on not so good days.
We are thinking of all in this community over Christmas and hoping and praying that you all see improvements in 2014 and are able to work within your new normal accepting the bad days as well as the good. One step forward two steps back as it sometimes seem but whilst there are steps forward there is hope, never give up.
Thank you for all of your help through posts and questions and ideas it has been an important part of our new lives - you are very special and amazing people.
Best wishes xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
