This woman was in a horrible car crash, and she was the victim of a hit-and-run when the driver who hit her fled the scene. Unfortunately, it’s taking a long time for the hit-and-run perpetrator to be sentenced.

Her lawyer explained that the driver would most likely be sentenced to many hours of community service. After the car crash, she suffered from a traumatic brain injury. She’s in physical therapy, and her neurologist explained that due to her injury, she would experience many struggles.

“One of the things they said I would face is differences in mood and behavior. I haven’t been moodier,” she said.

During conversations about her injury, her family members and friends thought she acted the way she had before the accident. The only difference they noticed is that it now takes her longer to understand and process information.

“But the thing is, I don’t love my husband anymore. He feels like a stranger to me. It’s not like I’m amnesiac, but I don’t feel connected to the memories I have with him,” she explained.

While thinking back, she has no idea why she’d been so in love with her husband before the accident.

She still finds him good-looking, but now, she thinks he’s dull, and she gets the impression that he expects her to be devoted to him and fawn all over him. Plus, she now feels like he’s annoying and arrogant.

Upon reflection, she thinks she was always the one moving the relationship forward with her husband, and she always loved him more than he loved her. She doesn’t understand why she should feel obligated to concern herself with him.

“I don’t want to go on dates with him, hang around, or do whatever I used to do with him. I’ve told him I felt disconnected with my memories and past emotions,” she shared.
