I have written about my husband and my friends but there is a very special someone in my life that you haven’t been introduced to yet.
We met three years ago, three months before my vision loss. We were just getting to know each other when I became sick and there was a lot of work for both of us to do. He had some trust issues, understandably, and I needed to learn patience, never a strong suit of mine. He acted out a lot and was usually in attack mode and when my husbamd or I reached out to him we knew we were probably going to get hurt.
But we knew his story and we were committed to him no matter how long it took or how many times he caused us pain. He was ours, and although he didn’t know it yet, and wouldn’t for a long time, we were his. Forever.
What I didn’t know when I entered into this relationship is that I would soon undergo the most challenging and scariest journey of my life and that he would get me through the darkest days.
To be continued . . .
