Mrs Tammy says:

This is where I am with my husband! I dont want to be around him, its abusive. Its sad because I know he has a TBI, but I am not super human. He is non compliant most of the time, and seems to look for ways to cause chaos. I often grieve that I have lost him.

Lav 85 says:

In my case it's different my relatives not helpful nor supportive. I'm doing everything by myself 🙏🏻

WanderingLeopard says:

I wonder how my TBI friends have been coping during this pandemic?
I've noticed there hasn't been any new videos from Brainline in about 8 months. Which of course makes sense.

JoeLovesHistory says:

I am heartbroken because my mother is going through this and she feels isolated but its partially due to her overreactions to family and emotional damage that she cant help probably due to a brain stem injury. I hate it but all I can do is continue to support and love her. You may see her driving or doing a normal thing but her ability to communicate effectively has been severely hindered.
