You are a strong person. I really admire your ability to stand firm in the face of all the adversity our marriage has dropped on your plate. You are also very kind and understanding. I still believe you are more understanding about my illnesses than I am. I certainly know you are much more accepting. I spend most of my time trying to rid myself of my illnesses and you spend your time trying to cope and move forward.
I know it sounds very melodramatic to say this, but even though things are not wonderful right now, I would not be where I am or even here without you. You are the yin to my yang. While I have tried to destroy everything in my life because of my self hatred, you have healed all my self destructive plots and kept our family afloat. How do you do it? Why do you believe in me? I know it has something to do with that love word we toss around all the time and I also know you meant it when you said you would be my wife and spend our lives together.
You have been so selfless allowing me to go through my medical issues while putting all your own problems on the back burner. Its not fair that I have been the focus for so long and your needs have gone without attention. You have been placed in a very unfair position in life. This is not the life you deserve after all the hard work you have put in through your education and your continued success in your professional life. Thank you very much for everything you have brought into my life. I hope we both find happiness with ourselves and together.
