Caregivingliving - It's my Anniversary!

Kimmy
And so it's been established. Caregivingliving is the lifestyle that has chosen me. The why is no longer the question.

The how is what guides me. How do I make this life meaningful for both of us? How do I pursue my dreams and not compromise his care? How do I learn to enjoy this new person and not mourn the man I met so long ago?

I will never understand  the complexity of a traumatic brain injury. Will he ever remember meeting and marrying ?

Today is my anniversary, it's a complicated day. We went out for ice cream and watched a movie. I bought myself some beautiful flowers., they made me smile.

Tomorrow we are going away for the first time since his illness. Caregivingliving takes some degree of planning. I hope we have a nice time, never stop trying. That's my motto. Life shifts are challenging.
