When a significant other has a brain injury

This article in the New York Times explores how a brain injury effects marriages and relationships. Unless you know someone who has suffered a brain injury you may not immediately think that this is an issue. But often times a brain injury can change a person’s personality, not just their physical capabilities and comprehension. Couples can grow apart or feel tremendous guilt due to the effects of a brain injury. This article doesn’t talk about military families in particular, but with the staggering numbers of soldiers returning with Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) as well as other injuries it is an issue that military families face. If this is an issue you are facing in your relationship, consider seeking help from a counselor, preferably couples therapy if both of you are willing.
