For those of you that know me personally; I work hard to be kind and optimistic. The past 12 months have challenged me.
And so it began; an unexpected emergency surgery that left me with half of my reproductive system and pictures of a orange size tumor that was silently causing havoc.
The entire time, my Love- stood by my side and vowed to love me through it. Our relationship began in Spring and by Winter we were having very serious conversations about fertility. Again- vowing to love me through it.
Our love story together continued, and by Summer...he was tragically stolen from us.
The wake left in his passing has rocked our world. I miss my best friend so fiercely.
Start seeing motorcycles. Keep the roadway safe for them.
On November 12th; I was admitted to the hospital. I made the choice to find the help I desperately needed. I did not want to continue here without him. While I don't remember much of my emergency room visit, I DO remember a nurse telling me that it was brave to raise my hand and ask for help. After several days of intense therapy and a lot of tears; I start the journey of navigating major depressive episodes and PTSD. I am thankful to have started getting the help I needed.
I am once again raising my hand. This is very hard for me to ask for help. My cup is filled by blessing others. I am not in a position fill the cups of others. Not yet. I look forward to that day.
I have found myself in a unsteady financial situation. Bills are behind, significant loss of work without pay... I am struggling. If you find yourself in a position to bless me; I would be forever grateful. The finances will be used to pay off outstanding utility bills and buy necessities (groceries/pet food/ fuel.)
Sending all my love to you,
