Hi, I first looked at the Headway site 2 1/2 years ago, 5 months after my son (aged 17 at the time) sustained a BI from a cycling accident. I didn't feel able to contribute then (to upsetting) but do now. To say the last 3 years have been hard work is an understatement. I am a single parent with no family that live close by. Great supportive friends......but I don't think they really understand the ongoing impact a BI has on family life. My eldest (with the BI) is now 20, my youngest is now 16. My son has made reasonably good progress in 3 years but still struggles with things. I still cry frequently and still have mixed emotions with it all. Anyway, I just wanted to say if any parents in similar situations want to chat and share experiences I would be more than willing to do so x
