It's a hard thing to do, but I think we all have to start making a life for ourselves outside the constant worry of the brain injury. It is really hard and I, too, worry all the time I am away but I think that to cope with the worst times we need to give ourselves a break whenever possible. Do it as often as you can, it will make the hard times easier. So long as Mark is safe, try to enjoy your free times - and have as many of them as you can.


Good for you going out. You have got to find room for yourself as well. My husband goes out at least once a week and nearly every day to the gym and I manage with some mishaps along the way.

I hope that you do it again soon and without him going through the spends... he is a bit out of order there. .. Hmm having said that my hubby is the same and he is the carer... perhaps they know of our secret lives of limousines and diamonds ... ha ha ,,some chance of that

You go out and please don't feel bad about it at all.

Best wishes
