On July 9, 2018 .... Jenny’s life changed. Her husband of 33 years contracted encephalitis that nearly caused his demise. After 3 months in hospital, endless invasive tests and rehab he was discharged with a permanent brain injury and epilepsy.
In Jenny’s words “I was told I would be Pete's CARER and I grieved about losing a mate and gaining a dependent.
Jenny talks about the life changes and how disorientating, confronting, frightening, frustrating and upsetting for them both this was. The NEW NORMAL everyone kept telling them about.
