I'm new to this group and thought it would be good for me to have contact with others in a similar situation. My husband has acquired brain injuries and my daughter and I have been coping with this for 9 years now. Just recently stress within our family has tipped over into me feeling like we are really struggling to cope now. I guess over the 9 years my daughter and I have not really looked after ourselves enough. My husband is happy and has a good life with plenty of social activities and exercise. I realise that I've looked after him all these years, working and bringing up our daughter,but am now struggling to cope with the result of his brain injuries. It feels alittle like career burnout at the moment.
I love to hear from anyone else who has had similar experiences.
