so sorry to hear of all your horrible experiences . Happy to see some good years that bring some good experiences.
Mmm 2001 was the year I began university. In a 2 month stint from June-July i was a in a major car accident and shattered my tail bone, had severe bruising and soft tissue damage, 1 week to the day I developed Chicken pox, 1 week later due to poor immunity I developed the flu very badly, 1 week after that my arthritis got so bad I was at the point I could no longer walk or even shower myself I was 18. SO to top it off I got diagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome and about 5 months after this I became so sick and vomited non-stop daily for months to the point that i vomited blood regularly, I have been on medication for this since. It was the beginning of June 2001 that I was happy with my body as a size 8 I had abundant energy and could run, dance, jump do anything without pain.
2010 6 weeks after meeting now DF i looked into work in the UK and applied for a work visa and got a job and moved with my then BF overseas after 5 months of dating, we had never really gone away before that lol. Started work in a country away from family and friends, fought and cried alot with DF as he didn't understand why I could be so lonely if I had him there but i missed my family and my friends and the work was so hard. IN a 1 week period in the December I had 2 falls and tore all cartillage in both knees both have been operated and both continue to cause me a mass of problems to this day and a lot of pain, I am not the same person as pain makes life unbearable some times and noone else understands it unless they have been there.
2013 is going to the best yet, I marry DF in 2 weeks tomorrow, we are going to start building our own house in June/July hopefully and get PG this year big fingers crossed there. And I get to do all of this with the person who loves me unconditonally.
