We got really bad news for husband. He will be going on Erivedge, which is chemotherapy for 10 months. And even after that, looks like he may still lose his eye. I know this is the time to be supportive of him, but me being so stressed has my head pounding and none of the meds work to make it stop. In front of him, I am strong, but alone, all I can do is cry. And I work at a call center, so I have to act all happy. I just thought I had a high stress level with my issues, but seeing my husband going through this is no comparison. Again, thank you for listening to me vent!!!!!!
Thought I would share this with the BTG community (sorry should have done this sooner but only just found the weblink....).
Headway Cambridgeshire are running a "Breaking down barriers" 13 week course, to help those with brain injuries return to work or to get involved in volunteering. The next course in my region (East of England), is being run in Peterborough, places are limited but I don't think it is full yet. The course is a mixture of OT rehab type activities, CV advice, interview strategies pertaining specifically to brain injury issues, and ideas and resources for volunteering (within the context of having a brain injury). I am not sure if other county Headway organisation are running this or not, but I can thoroughly recommend it, having attended the first one in my region in St. Neots.
Here's a web link:
It was a great opportunity not only to go over some of those important rehab / cognitive exercise / fatigue management strategies, but to do it in a small group where experiences could be shared. All of us on the course found this particularly invaluable.
If you are local to Peterborough and think you would be interesting, its coming up very soon, contact the organisers and they are good at moving quickly to get the right folks enrolled.
I haven't posted or visited for a while, I hope all here in BTG land are keeping well and happy.
All the best
My Daughter told me about Behind the Grey and it has helped me a lot.
Just knowing we are not alone in this is a good feeling, so try not to rush as you will take two steps forward and one back.
I get tired also, but take care of you and try not to stress too much, not good for you !!
I wish you well on recovery and anytime you feel a bit down or need advice come here as we have all been there, and you are not alone.
Best Days work I did was to come on here, I sometimes leave laughing. Get weird looks from Dog and Daughter lol xx
Take care and take it slow until you can look back and say "Hey today was a good Day" it will come xx
All the Best
