Caregivingliving: Memories

Kimmy
As time goes by it is getting more difficult to remember life before June 13, 2016.

Pictures bring back memories and are a source of comfort sometimes. They can also make you feel overwhelmingly sad. I cannot figure out if the stress of caregiving  makes it difficult to remember or it is simply a defense mechanism that assist in protecting me from the harsh reality of what has happened.

My husband always felt larger than life and I miss him so very much. Please understand this new guy is charming yet different. Traumatic brain injuries often feel like roller coasters, the personality is so different.

I took out a box of pictures today and had a good laugh and cry, I even smiled. Making new memories and appreciating the old ones, its a process.
