I've been absent the last couple of days due to fatigue, preparation for, taking, and recovering from a Neuro-Psych test yesterday (65 miles one way!) I'm just here on the computer for a few minutes before I go back to bed.
I have been thinking a lot about relationships post-injury. I think of my own relationships, the few that survived the fierce, raging storms and the many that did not.
I know for certain we are not the only population in the world who lose spouses, friends, family, co-workers, neighbors along the way. I would venture to say losing relationships in the storms of life is more the norm, and friends who stay, a rarity. I say this because in my observations post-injury, the healthy relationships survive anything. I've often said my relationships now have to be pretty good all on their own because I do not have the energy or ability to do more than my part (even though that part seems dreadfully small to me, it is what it is.)
