Counting Down

Our house is finally coming together, although we have not yet moved. Our days living with my mother are limited, and that makes me sad in certain ways, but also is very exciting because of the new chapter in our lives that we are starting. After all, I am almost 31 years old, married, with a stepson and living at home with my mother. Who would have guessed? I never imagined this is where I would be in my life at this stage but then again, it’s almost getting to the point where this seems somewhat normal, if that’s at all possible. August will mark four years since my injury and everything I knew before hand has either changed significantly or is no longer part of my routine. Some days are easier than others. Some days bring more joy than others. Some days I really struggle to be anything than miserable and I hate it. It’s not fair to anyone. Not myself but more importantly, not to those that love me and sacrifice so many things on a daily basis just for my benefit. That’s why I’m hoping this new chapter of ours will allow me to get a new start, if for nothing, only for my own mental health! Besides, my wife and stepson deserve my absolute best. Not that the time that has passed with them was horrible on my end, at least I hope not, but I could have definitely done better. I guess everyone can always do better, but I’m really looking forward to this fresh start. So anyway, sorry for this long and rambling post, but I wanted to say hello and give you a small idea of what’s going on. I really appreciate any of you out there who still follow these little blurbs about what’s going on in my life. It means so much. I know I keep saying that I’m going to write more often, but this time I mean it! I promise! I hope that all of you out there are well. Talk soon!

    I am thankful for your new start. I can’t say I know how your rough days are, all I can say is I understand them. Melissa seems like a wonderful person and I’m sure she understands too. The most important thing you can do is communicate with her when you are having a bad day and reassure her it is not her. I love you Bud and am still praying for you and your family. I am happy that you have something to look forward too and grateful for you new friends, that are going through some of the things you two are going through and truly understand where you are. Take care!!!

    Hello Aaron

    I know you are looking forward to your fresh start. I hope moving into your new place is a smooth transition for you and I wish you the best with your fresh start. Try not to dwell on the bad things if in fact you ever do so. Try to keep your mind on the positive things in life. Think positive, be positive, and continue to help others be positive.

    Stay Strong My Friend
