I have been my fiancé’s carer since his brain injury in May 2016. His health has recently started to decline and it’s had a huge impact on my mental health.
I’m constantly worried and having trouble sleeping. Just when things start to look like they might get better, something else goes wrong. I can’t look forward to the future because I’m constantly worried something else is going to go wrong.
I regularly feel low, isolated and hopeless.
I have days that I want to stay in bed all day and hide from the world.
I love my fiancé so much but sometimes I wish we had a normal life and were a normal couple.
