Falling out of love…

Some of the search results that bring people here are interesting but this one caught my eye today:

“my wife has secondary progressive ms and i have fell out of love with her but i do love her”

 

I personally don’t believe that love is a place you “fall” into or out of.  Love is a choice.  Love is work.  Love is hard.  Love can be very rewarding.  If I did not make the choice to love each day I could easily claim to “fall out of love” with my husband.  I know many people don’t see marriage the same way I do.  Many people walk away when the going gets tough.  Til death do us part has no meaning to the masses.

I was raised different.  Love is not some place that you fall but something that you do.

“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.”  I Corinthians 13.

Introducing…

I have had a blog for about 7 years, in the beginning I posted a lot, it was random and silly and mixed in with many posts about having a husband with MS.  It was an outlet for me, sometimes I whined, other times I really spoke from the heart.

I intend for this blog to be much more focused.  My topics will be MS (multiple sclerosis) and the many ways it can affect a life such as physical disability, cognitive dysfunction, dementia, lots of fun topics all told from my personal perspective.  As well I may touch on veterans issues as my husband is service connected and covered by the Veterans Administration. The ongoing struggle for benefits from the VA will be a fun topic to tackle.  I will also bring forward some of my past posts that are relevant.

So if you are reading this, thank you.  I hope to help other spouses of MS patients as well as spouses of disabled veterans who may be seeking benefits, and hopefully anyone who has ever had to take care of or advocate for someone who they loved who could not do it themselves will find something here.

Hang on it’s bound to be a wild ride.
