Have you ever read a fairy tale that ended with a wedding and, “And they all lived happily ever after”?
Hey y’all, Tiffany here.
When I envisioned my life after growing up, getting married, and having a family, I didn’t expect that I would be fighting my dragons after I had said my wedding vows.
I knew it would be difficult, of course – life always has its ups and downs. But I never dreamed that the biggest fight of my married life would be a literal fight for my life.
I was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease about 8 years ago, just a little over a few year before I was married. It was managed well with medications, but two months after my wedding, it all changed.
In these last six years, in addition to having two children, I’ve been admitted to the hospital close to 40 times due to health complications. Some of those stays have seen me on death’s doorstep.
I used to worry that my husband would say, “Psh, this isn’t what I signed up for! See ya!” and walk out the door. On the contrary: he has never once complained. Not one single time. He hasn’t been resentful or blamed me……ever.
