Another Fork in the Road, on Brain Injury Radio
hosted by Donna O’Donnell Figurski
first aired February 5, 2023
The conversation in this episode landed in the challenging territory of “What happens if—.”
Panelists Deb Brandon (survivor), Jeannette Davidson-Mayer (caregiver), and Bob Millsap
(caregiver) join program host Donna O’Donnell Figurski to confront the common assumption
that a spouse will be the survivor’s primary caregiver no matter what. This assumption conflicts
with many other assumptions. If you have “Long Covid” (or other chronic illness), your spouse
will “pick up the slack” (often not an option). If you’re married, you should stay married, even if
divorce is better for everyone. Planning for “what happens if—” begins with talking openly and
honestly about our experiences, assumptions, and expectations.
