written about James Cracknell, the Olympic rower and his life since the brain injury he sustained in 2010 in a road traffic accident. However, whilst it is traumatic for someone to overcome such serious injury and try to resume their pre accident life, it is also the family who have to suffer tremendously in the wake of such an injury.

In this case James Cracknell's wife Beverley found her coping mechanism through her friends who supported her through phone calls and were there to pick her up when she felt her own needs were unimportant which she says kept her sane. In redonline.co.uk is the story of her life since the accident.
 
She felt guilty that she wasn't looking after James, guilty that she wasn't giving the children enough attention and ultimately assumed her role as a woman to be the mother of the family. It took her friends to take her on a much needed holiday to Marbella to take her mind off her responsibilities at home and just to enjoy herself, be silly and laugh until her stomach hurt! She said her friends, those who took her away from her newly complicated life for a week away or even just an evening, kept her sane and keep her the calmer happier version of herself she is today.
