Psychological Changes resulting from BI as Talked about by Mark Kerrigan, TBI Survivor.
Ive had to move out. I love my fiance but……the tbi has left him with no ability to have empathy, love or compassion especially towards me. Everything revolves around comparing others misfortunes/pain to his. I was very ill & and what i got was him comparing his pain to mine. The lying also. Its to the point the lies are on top of the lies. Im his partner and i come last….everything i read is about the tbi person – nothing about the g’friends, wives, etc who have to be dealing with recieving NOTHING. does it get better. 3 1/2 years since tbi and the focus on himself and attention seaking behaviour is getting worse.
Confused–I’m truly sorry that your fiancée is self-focused. I feel like it does get better, though not within the immediate future. As far as someone writing from the point of the significant other, well, maybe YOU could start doing that! In fact, here’s a link that will help get you started: http://mo.by/ODeJku. I feel like there are times when I remain self-centered, but for the most part, I think I’ve changed a great deal in that department. But 25+years is too long to wait. I don’t know what to tell you except that it will get better….eventually. Thanks for your comments and questions. And feel free to email me with any other questions you may have.
Thank you Mark, your respinse is very appreciated. It gives me hope. Yes, 25 years…. a lot of waiting. But i guess if i choose to stay – it will be about cherishing the good times and at the same time living my own life. A very precarious way to live.
Thank you again 🙂 oh…that link you put in your response just took me to a map.
Have a GREAT day.
That may sound very disappointing for many, but it’s the truth.
There is no loss to them because they make money when you
do. I promise you that if you commit to it you’ll start seeing great results immediately.
