Hi Just checking in


I am a carer for my partner who has epilepsy and a host of other health issues as a resuly of a brain injury many years ago.

Haven’t had a break for 20+ years


Hi James,

Welcome to the forum.

Caring for someone with a brain injury is tough, you must miss the relationship you had before the injury took place.

I haven’t had a break for 19 years, so can empathise. Do you get any support in caring for your wife? Are you able to leave her for short periods?


Hi James,

You need to have a break from time to time.

Have you managed a holiday together since the injury?
