Where Did My Wife Go?
About five years ago, a good friend
|Bad day moment, |
but never stops smiling.
|I knew something was wrong when|
she would fall into a heap of exhaustion
after a workout.
So began our journey… not one we had planned for of course, but who can ever plan for life? Things happen, unexpected things. Anyone who has children can attest to this. We began to see a plethora of doctors and professionals. We scoured the internet for answers. The more answers we got, the more questions we had. It became overwhelming to try to sift through all the different opinions we received. This wasn’t a disease in the traditional sense. This is a syndrome. A conglomeration of symptoms that cannot be fully categorized. How can we gauge exhaustion or pain? Her blood tests would give some answers, but again, many would have their interpretations as to what this was. So onward we went.
Some things we discovered worked, like a Mediterranean diet, certain supplements as well. L-Methyl Folate definitely helped her a great deal. Exercise was key. On days when she had absolutely no motivation she made herself go. It broke my heart, then and now, to see her struggle doing something that she used to love to do so much. Yet, onward like the warrior I know she goes. Onward with the fight to get better and stronger.
Our journey is not over. We continue looking for that one perfect
|My beautiful wife at her best |
on date night.
