Sun Newspapers out every Wednesday FFrroomm cchhiilldd ttoo ccaarreerr DDECEMBER 19, 2000,was a day that changed the lives of Lyn Temby and Charlier Temby Baistow. Lyn was sitting in her stationary car at a set of traffic lights, when without warning she was rammed from behind at high speed by another vehicle. She did not see it coming or anticipate anything as two other cars were hit before her, causing a deadly domino effect. As a result of the crash, Lyn sustained a head injury with bleeding to the corpus callosum, which changed everything for her. Having to learn to walk and talk properly again, not allowed to drive or swim, having double vision and suffering a major depression disorder and post traumatic stress disorder, her life turned to chaos. Losing her job, career, memory, essentially everything that was her life, Lyn ended up being cared for by her nine-yearold daughter Charlier. Charlier had to try and make sense of the traumatic incident that essentially changed her mum in a heartbeat, but also had to cope with being a child and taking on more responsibility than many adults need to cope with such as caring for her mum. "Having a brain injury has been the worst event of my life," Lyn said. "Grief, loneliness, anger, sadness, feeling lost, helpless, tired, fed up and struggling are just some of the feelings I contend with on a regular basis. "But Charlier has the same feelings, and she doesn't even have the excuse of an injury. Charlier has to live with her Mum, a Mum who changed instantly. "If I had one wish - it would be that Charlier would not be affected by something so traumatic and out of her control and for her to know what it's like to live her life as a kid, not having to worry like an adult." Mental Health Carers NT operates several programs so young carers such as Charlier and people like Lyn can start to feel like living a normal life again, including Paint it: Art programs, which give everyone a meaningful use of time, help promote non-verbal self expression, and improve self esteem and social interaction. Lyn has discovered her love as an artist during her rehabilitation, and has recently launched a few projects, including a mirror piece called My Sun. For more information about the programs Mental Health Carers NT offer, call 8948 1051.
