This is my first blog on here. You can probably tell from my name that I am a spouse and caregiver to my wounded veteran. I think most of my posts on here will be about our challenges and triumphs that this situation brings. However, I do hope to share stories about our kids too. I decided to start this blog because I think it will bring awareness to Traumatic brain injuries, and I also think of it as therapeutic for me as well. This journey has been long and it will continue to be filled with ups and downs. We are 4 years post injury and yet I continue to advocate and fight for decent care. The VA system is one big pain in the butt and if you don't learn how to advocate for yourself you will get lost in the system. I look forward to sharing our experiences here.
