Dear Dr Dan,
I am so happy to hear from you, I have being keeping up to date with your postings. You are truly, a light in the night for me.
My husband Thierry and I are 51 years old, we love each other, always have, we have being blessed with a great marriage, we talk, and plan and hope for the future, always did . Needless is to say that we have good days and some not so ... We have a 23 years daughter, who just graduated from the university recently. We have hopes and dreams and we want to grow old together. Oh, what a wonderful thing this would be!! We want to be grandparents; we want life, love, and hope and have fun together. We want a tomorrow.
About pain...Well, I will speak for me, as a care giver 24/7...it is so very difficult, physically, emotionally and spiritually. For me, the emotional and spiritual part has being the hardest... But, will keep believing God loves me and this enormous challenge have been giving to me because, He knows I can endure it. Sometimes, I can't help thinking, He forgot about me.
I often ask God why?
When, I think about our lives, I must say my world started and will end with this man, I so love. I have a choice to make and my choice is to live, hope and cherish every moment we have together.
I work from home now at days, take care of my small business knowing it is up to me to keep the financial part going to meet our bills. I take care of my Thierry's physical needs and take pride in keeping him healthy. I take care of everything. I worry about getting sick or worse, who will take care of him? Those are my thoughts, my concerns. But, I try to stay away from thinking too much. I try to live today and cherish it, as if there is no tomorrow. Like Thierry always says, today is a present...enjoy it!
But, I want tomorrow. I want us...
Dr Dan, you are an incredible man. You must have a great spirit! How wise you are! Thank God for you. I can't be part of your Tuesdays' discussions, I am working then but, I hope you feel compel to continue talking to me. I sure need an understanding heart.
Thank you for replying, I was ready to stop posting. I am so glad I did not give up.
