|forever feels like home ♥|
I met the boy through a mutual friend years ago and we used to go out on the town within a group of friends (as friends) every weekend. It wasn't until 2010 that we actually got together. I'm not sure how it eventually happened. I think I'd shown him some interest a few months prior and he said he was just waiting for the right time because I'd been going through a painful breakup with an ex. So, yeah, it just happened.
We've now been together two and a half years and he is the most wonderful man I have ever met. He understood me from the word go and no matter what I threw at him - no matter how many times I thought he would leave me because of how messed up things have been - he's stuck by me, giving me wise words and the love I need.
I did tell him pretty much from the outset about my endometriosis, but at that point, I'd only had my coil in for a short time so everything was going well still. It wasn't until I started having pains again last year that he started to see any effects of the disease. When I had my flare up in February I think it shocked him... Not that I would be surprised by that reaction - I did start screaming and writhing around the bed in pain at 4am!
The boy hadn't really had a chance to get himself accustomed to living with my endometriosis before it kicked in big time and you all know how it's been for me since that night. The boy, however, has been fantastic. He's stood by me at every step of the way: sitting up with me when I've been crying during the night; helping me around the house when I've not been able to move easily; driving me any and everywhere; talking and listening to me when I've needed support... I couldn't have asked for any more. I never thought anyone would be able to understand what I have to live with and still stick with me and yet, he does.
We have our future planned out and even though our relationship is still in it's relatively early days, I know he is my forever. I knew it from the moment I kissed him.
So, Daniel... Thank you. For all that you are and all that you continue to be. I would have fallen so many times had it not been for you being there to hold me up and show me those bright stars of hope. I cannot wait for our future to begin next year. I love you. Always, always.
