The last time I was seriously ill my significant other essentially abandoned me both physically and emotionally; barely visiting me while Iwas inthe hospital, not caring for me when I was home .After that experience Itold myself that whoever I ended up with would be someone who would never even think of abanoning me whe I needed him most. luckily, My judgement was better this time, my husband took the vows "for better or for worse in sickness and in health" very sweriously. Hre never left my side fo the two and a half months Iwas inthe hospital. He He is always ready to give me dose of tough love, and I need it now and then, he pushes me to be my best self, to be as great as he knows m. Hebelieves in me even when Ican't muster up any faith in myself. He is truly my partner in this journey. and Iam thankful for his prescence every day.
