Hi, my names Danielle and I'm new to the group. My husband was repeatedly hit with IED's when he was in Iraq and came back with a TBI(no surprise there). They still aren't sure how bad it is yet and he is undergoing extensive testing but his symptoms are pretty bad and just seem to be getting worse. He has terrible headaches, isn't emotionally in control, trouble speaking, trouble sleeping, can no longer read and the list just goes on and on. He struggles daily. I support him as much as he'll let me but we both know that I have no idea what he's going through but I'm trying to understand so I can help him more effectivley. At the same time, I'm emotionally and physically exhausted. Is there some kind of end in sight? When will he stop hurting so much? Is it normal for it to get worse before it get's better? All I hear from the doctors is "We don't know" and "Some people do and some people don't" Watching him hurt and struggle every day breaks my heart and I can't help him stop hurting. I guess my main question is how have/or would you like your caregivers helped you cope with your injury? Sorry it was kinda long and emotional...

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips.
