I’m sorry I’ve been absent lately. It’s been one of the worst weeks I’ve had in years. For 4 days I couldn’t walk, I barely can now. And I’m in so much pain that the medicine isn’t doing anything to help anymore. For those that don’t know, I have Facet Arthropathy, an advance type of degenerative disc disease. I’m losing bone mass in my spine. It is the reason I was forced to leave the Army. It has been hard on my wife and I. There is no cure, it only gets worse over time. I face the fact of being bound to a wheelchair later in life. Despite this, I have tried to live life as regularly as possible, though I can no longer do a lot of things I was before. My one ray of Hope is my wife CC. To be there at my side, at my worst of times, is the greatest thing anyone has ever done for me in my life. She does things so willingly without second thought, like help me get dressed, or cooks for me, that keeps me strong willed. Without her, I don’t know what would become of me. I do everything in my power for her. I give her motivation when she is down. It is because of this, and my stubbornness, that I risk my health to help clean when she steps out. She is the greatest person I’ve ever known, and I can’t help but wonder if I am good enough for her. I do what I can to make her happy, which is part of the reason I am taking her on a trip to Oregon and Washington. My love for her knows no bounds. Though we don’t believe in an afterlife, we do believe in energy. And I know that when we both pass, our energy will bond, abd traverse the universe together.
