Me and Michael met when i was 15, We had an extremely rocky start but we love each other and we have worked through it.
We was together for a year before i had a breakdown which caused us to separate for 6 months. (Although we could’t stay away from each other.) We got back together in December 2015 and spent our first chrismas as a family. Just after new year Michael had an epileptic fit (You can reading more about that here). He had a fit at work, causing him to nearly die. He was taken to hospital and i found out about all this when he came round and rang me. I then rushed straight to the hospital where he was in resus and i was a mess, i thought i could have lost him. Once he was in recovery we managed to have a chat and talk about what had happened. He was in a great deal of pain and i shared with him how scary all this was. He felt the same and said
“I never wanna go through this again, not knowing that you are my wife. Will you marry me.”
I cried like a baby, the thought of loosing him and how much i loved in.. it was all too much and i said yes.
With everything that had happened and how bad he was during his recovery we was both terrified that it would happen again. Which it did in the August. But we managed to work through it all and we are still has strong as ever.
About a year after our engagement Michael managed to give me the most beautiful ring to replace the temporary one he had given me! I was so happy and it is perfect. Although i told him my temporary one was perfect enough.
Michael is my rock; i would not be here today if it was not for him. He is my everything and he is always so strong for his family. He is my world, along with the kids. My little family.
