From one moment to the next an accident changed their lives, and Barbara became a victim"s care giver. The chapters of this book reveal the source of Barbara's strength not only to survive but to become a loving caregiver. In these pages she shares her insights and experiences and faith with readers who themselves have encountered similar challenges or know someone who has. I am certain those readers will find Barbara's thoughts both helpful and encouraging. Review... THIS BOOK, "THE OTHER SURVIVOR", GIVES INSIGHT INTO THE AUTHOR'S DIFFICULT JOURNEY DURING HER HUSBAND'S FIGHT TO REGAIN HIS STRENGTH AND HEALTH, WHICH IS NOT ALWAYS POSSIBLE. THE DIFFERENT AGENCIES INVOLVED AND THE HEALTH INSURANCE COMPANIES DO NOT MAKE IT EASY IN ASSISTING WITH ONE'S RECOVERY FROM ANY TYPE OF BRAIN INJURY. IT IS A MATTER OF ONE'S ABILITY TO DEAL WITH THE RED TAPE TOGETHER WITH THE PATIENT'S MOODS AND ANGER NOT WITHSTANDING. IF YOU HAVE SOMEONE YOU LOVE WHO HAS A BRAIN INJURY AND YOU ARE THE CAREGIVER, I RECOMMEND THAT YOU READ THIS BOOK WHICH ENTAILS THE AUTHOR'S OWN EXPERIENCE. I DO BELIEVE THAT THE TRUE INTENT OF THIS BOOK IS TO GUIDE ONE IN THEIR EFFORTS TO HELP THE PATIENT TO PERSEVERE AND THE POSSIBLE RETURN TO A NORMAL LIFE. IT IS NOT INTENDED TO DELVE INTO THEIR PERSONAL LIVES BEYOND RECOVERY. IT IS WRITTEN WITH LOVE AND CARE TO LET PEOPLE KNOW WHAT STRUGGLES ONE GOES WHEN GOING THROUGH IN DEALING WITH THE SUCH CIRCUMSTANCES. READ THE BOOK WITH AN OPEN MIND, IT WILL HELP YOU TO UNDERSTAND YOUR OWN SHORTCOMINGS AND STRENGTHS. BB
