I thought That I needed to Change…

It’s funny, I’ve gone several different directions with this blog over the years. As a wounded warrior’s wife, why I stay, after wife… Each time I changed tack I felt that I had to “hide” the previous part of the journey because it wasn’t relevant.

Today, I realized that it is *all* relevant. The good, the bad and the incredibly ugly parts of this wounded warrior wife life. So I’ve made the majority of the old posts public again. I have kept two extremely hard posts private while I try to decide if I want to revisit those terrible days. Self preservation is, after all, a part of this journey.

Anyhow, I realized that all parts of this journey are important. Even those that only apply to me. A hazard of caregiving is losing your identity – I’ve definitely done that a time or two! As I’ve found my Tribe, and as my husband’s TBI has gotten worse, I’ve begun to take care of me. I can’t help anyone if I can’t help myself, after all. At times this blog may feel all over the place, but trust me, it’s all a part of the journey.

  1. OMG! I have done the same thing: hiding parts of my journey because of that time not realizing that even when it seemed like it was all about him it was also all about me too!!! I’ve hidden and deleted posts on my blog off and on because I’ve struggled to see the beauty of my part in that story!
