5 thoughts on “Traumatic brain injury and domestic violence (retro)

  1. I suffered severe head trauma in 2007 from his final assault (before I left Australia and changed my name, yet again), which led to my losing my hearing and eyesight. I have no clue how the brain works, but I am glad it kept me alive long enough for me to meet the man who would some day become my husband. He learned to sign just so he could communicate with me, and even after almost 7 years of marriage, we are still like newlyweds. I cannot stop feeling so much love and appreciation for a man who can love the “broken” me, even learning a whole new language so he can communicate with me.

      • Yeah, he is truly wonderful, and thank you xx He asked me to write him into my next book (he is a fan of horror) and I did, but I could not bear to write him as one of the monsters in the Karmic Krystal books. Instead, I wrote him in as himself – kind, loving, wonderful. Not so imaginative, I guess, but I could not picture him as anything different. I save those monsters for the ones that found it fun to hurt me.

    • I’m really sorry you suffered so much…

      I’m glad to hear you were able to move beyond that period of your life. Congratulations to you and your husband! 🙂
