The topic today is memories of my life so far and links to my previous post A Broken Heart Part 1. I didn’t post on Day 8 as I was behind a post due to my Fibro flaring so I thought these two posts would work well as one.
So to start, my worst memories. As I said in my post about a broken heart, I have had my heart broken figuratively and literally. My worst memories have happened in the last 10 years. In 2007 I lost both my uncle and my Grampy within 6 months. My uncle died in a car accident and my Grampy died suddenly from heart complications. This was the worst time of my life and I don’t think I have ever gotten over it; but that is for another post. My next worst memory is of when I was admitted to hospital before they diagnosed me with Fibromyalgia. It was a scary time; I was in pain and no one knew what was wrong! This was the start of my new pain filled life and I still struggle with the fact that my life is no longer what I had expected.
Now on to the better part of the post; best memories!
My top memory has to be marry my husband. It was a magical day and truly was the best day of my life. My husband and I met 7 years ago through mutual friends and have been pretty much inseparable since then. I met Ste the July before I went to university and he has supported me through the tough journey to become a teacher. I know I am biased but he is the best husband a woman could ask for. He is loving, funny, supportive and caring, but most of all he is understanding. He understands that our lives have changed ecause of my diagnosis, he understands that I can’t do late nights, go out all the time or do the house work. He helps me when my symptoms flare, from helping me in and out of the bath to brushing my hair. He truly is AMAZING!
Some of my other top memories include:
- Graduating from university and getting my first teaching job
- Making amazing, life long friends during my gap year
- Buying a house
- Becoming a godparent twice!
- The day Ste proposed
- My honeymoon
