Personal Journeys

Sarah Wade

Six years after her husband, Ted, was injured, Sarah Wade offers her insight on the challenges of dealing with the long-term effects of TBI. Sarah discusses the spectrum of Ted’s recovery, from complete dependence to increasing independence. Sarah explains the importance of taking care of herself, in order to be there for her husband.

In some ways, I had lost my own identity. I had been Ted’s caregiver for so long that that’s who I was… that’s what I did.
