When Jason switched to his new family physician one of the first things she said was that there was no way we could have children while he was in such an early recovery phase. As frustrating as it is to be told what we are allowed to do as adults I recognize the wisdom of this advice. I can only imagine how exhausted parents must feel when dealing with a spouse with TBI and children. I struggle to balance our life and we have no children and I control my own work schedule! There are some parents out there doing some amazing things. Recently a few posts about how to cope as a child in this situation have come across my desk and I wanted to share for those that find themselves in this position.
