Hi Grasshopper1. Thank you so much for your reply, just to have someone say hello means so much. I wasn't even sure if I was doing the right thing. You're right, I do need to take care of myself first and I've been getting better at that lately. The guilt though, wow that's a killer. "What happens if I do this, what will he do if I'm not there all the time" etc etc, it weighs on you so much. Knowing what to say to him is hard too, the brain injury makes rational conversation so hard sometimes. And he forgets half of it most of the time too. I'm closest to him, so everyone looks to me like I have all the answers, but the truth is I'm flying blind here sometimes! Thank you again, I'll try to get some sleep now that it's all calm for the evening. Tomorrow is another day! Take care
