Your story touched my heart. I'm so lucky to have the chance to get to know someone who has so much to give.

That's a really moving story. I wish you all the best on your journey. David sounds like a real gem!

My husband, David, found this and it felt like it fit like a glove for so much of my teens and twenties. Even though to the outside world things were going great -- I'd be chosen for one Canada's top Award for my Ph.D., (and $60,00!yippy) I'd traveled the world, I was thin and fit! (took that for granted), doing research at two top universities, teaching at one, had a man madly in love with me and me with him; despite all this, if there was a bully around, I would crumble and often sink into a deep depression. I'd like to see them try that now, but unfortunately, my depression treatments left me without much memory of my adult life, including my wedding. Despite pictures and videos, I don't have a single memory of it, or of graduating, or of traveling, of even how to email (that was taught to me), the other things are just pictures and dead ends. That's one of the main reasons I want to lose a lot of weight: to have a renewal (or new for me
) of our wedding vows. Photos are forever and I want us both to look our best in them because we can't display a lot of other photos from our original wedding since they were of all our favourite people: friends, family, co-workers, who abandoned me once I got sick. Even my mother left me. As an only child, that was devastating. I think that's why I 'm still trying to shake off this depression, because there's been so much change and lonliness. So, on to new and better things. I have my husband and he's stayed with me through thick and thin (literally!
), one friend, Diane, who always wrote me letters, even though I never returned one. Dani and Jeanie are neighbours whom we love (from USA) and Crystal, Helen, and Joyce. I think that's enough to make a new family from! Thanks for listening and if you identify with the little creature above, it's about time you give yourself a break
