Exactly 28 years ago on April 6th 1985, Eddie and I became one. We said vows, and made a true commitment to each other. Through the years, has that commitment been tested? You better believe it has!! Examples: infertility, my mom living with us, and being her caregiver until her death, my battle with being a cutter after my mom's death, Eddie's battle with Gillian Barri syndrome, financial hardships, and of course, all of my health problems. Are we a happily ever after, perfect couple? No, we are a very real couple, that has struggles, just like everyone else. Do we agree about everything? Of course not, we are two different people. But, I am totally committed to Eddie. I would never even consider divorce. Things have been very strained in our marriage since my stroke, Eddie has changed so much. He treats me so differently, he has distanced his self from me. I feel so alone, but, I will never give up on my marriage. No matter how many walls he tries to put up between us, with God's help, I will scale those walls. I will forever be committed to the two men in my marriage, that I took vows with, God, and Eddie.
