Tonight I decided to change tack on my blogging. You see, I’ve written a blog as the wife/caregiver of a catastrophically wounded Veteran. Sadly, I felt like my posts tended to be negative. I didn’t intend to be negative, I just was.
So as I sat here tonight, by myself, I thought, “He always asks me why I stay. Why doesn’t he believe that I stay because I love him?”.
Mind you, I am by myself because he slept all day and woke this evening in a bad mood. If you know anything about PTSD you’ll know that I am his “safe person”. The one that all of the bad juju gets direct towards.
As I mulled the thought over I realized that I COULD blog in a positive fashion if I blogged about why I stay.
Love is just a part of it. There is so much more to why I am here, in this relationship, with this man, under these circumstances. Hopefully, this blog will be a way to express all of the reasons I stay in what is not always a warm and fuzzy marriage.
