This program has brought light to my life. I have learned that I am not alone and that other caregivers struggle as I do. This program has empowered me to ask for help when I need it. I have been able to learn techniques to help my husband with his PTSD and TBI. He and I have actually went on a couple of dates the last two months, which is the first in several years.
