Hello - this is my first post.
I joined because my husband (of a year or so) suffered a head injury last year in August. He suffered a concussion. That sounds so minimal, but we went to A & E because he'd lost vision and was appearing 'drunk'. They scanned him - no physical injury, I got given a leaflet and we were sent home.
The vision returned (the GP referred us for checks, no eye damage, no stroke) but he had lost his memory, had trouble making associations, couldn't remember tasks.......... he went back to work after a month and I don't think should have been there.
I'm hoping that everyone has enough experience to understand how majorly he was affected without me listing it all.
Well, I still think his executive function is not as good. He is very literal - his impulse control seems to have 'shifted'.
But, 7 months on, I am losing track of what's 'normal' - or what WAS normal for him. I question myself all the time.
Onto the body of my question.
He went to our house in france, alone, 9 days ago. I was worried about him going - but he wanted to go - he thinks he is 'fine' but then he's thought that even when he couldn't remember my name.
He called me on day 2, panicking - he'd dropped his mobile and broken it. So he'd gone to the home of the estate agent who sold us the house, banged on their door on the Sunday morning, and called me from their home phone.
I reassured him not to worry about me - to enjoy his holiday - I was fine.......... I calmed him down.
I now haven't heard from him since last Sunday. He is due home today.
I am caught between
'He really couldn't care less about me'
'Blimey, if he can take 'don't worry about me' to mean 'don't give me a second thought for a week' then he needs some sort of assessment'.
Can anyone help me with it? I know obviously no one can answer - but perhaps something can help me shed some light?
