Its been almost a year since the accident which left my partner with a TBI after 3 bleeds on the brain and multiple broken bones. Thought we had got away with things reasonably well compared to a lot of your stories on here, but this past month he is driving me insane. Wether he is stressing because they have said it is time he tried to return to the work place part time or what, I dont know. He was a lorry driver and is not interested in doing anything else but they have revoked his HGV. I have tried to be supportive and suggested a lot of things within the transport industry that perhaps he could consider but am really struggling. Because of this he is now doing odd and random things which just dont make any sense. He gave up smoking 4 years ago after a heart attack, went on to vapes and since the accident has existed well on patches. Came home from work the other day to find him outside smoking he had gone to the local shop and bought a pack of ciggies. Now this is a daily occurance. We have a Pyrenean Mountain dog, normally in the hot weather we shave his belly and trim up his top coat to cool him down, a neighbour told us of a woman that lives locally who would do this at a fair rate, because i have to do the lions share of work and work full time Ian made an appointment and took our dog. I got home Monday and was horrified at what she has done to my beautiful dog, she sheared him like a sheep and the big lumox stood there and let her and paid her to do it. I have never seen anything so bad, my poor dog. Then he loses his temper with me over it, which is happening a lot just lately. Some days I just want to run away, he keeps organising for people to come round and do jobs but he has no money so I have to pay I just dont know what to do anymore. Anyway rant over just needed to get it off my chest.
