Those of you who know me know that PDA isn’t my thing, but it needs to be said because it emphasises an important point and I mean every word.
Eight years ago I met my fiancé Lois. It’s tough to describe what this girl means to me but I suppose this diary extract from day 14 goes some way;
‘Lois is pretty much on my mind all the time, she is my main drive to improve. I am desperate to get to a place where I can provide the best possible life for us both and don’t need looking after, she doesn’t deserve this.’
It’s true, I knew that we were going to have an amazing life together and there where times when I wondered if I’d gone and ruined everything. It was troubling me more than anything else, I could deal with what had happened to me but I couldn’t live with what I had done to her. She didn’t sign up for this, no one did, but how she has supported me, laughed with me, cried with me and just been there for me, I know now that we can get through this. Nothing will stop us getting to where we want to be and doing what we want to do with our lives, I believe that now. There may be a few alterations along the way but this is just a bump in the road and if anything we will be stronger for it.
Some people I have spoken to have emphasised the stress that situations like this can put on relationships. Obviously there will be moments as its an emotional time, but this is a big change, not just for you, but for your family and friends as well. Just remember at the end of the day you may be the one with the injury but you are all in this together. They are there to help carry the weight, and they are there because they want to be, appreciate that, because you need them more than ever.
P.s. Current garden lap time is 1 minute 23 seconds. Need to clean up my line going into the second left hander. 🐌✌️
