This blog is for the woman who’s been there for me for years, the beautiful, wonderful woman to whom I owe my life!
I feel I should say a few words to strengthen our marriage, as I feel it’s not been easy living with me – not because I’m a bad guy; just because, Jade, like me you’ve been forced into a change of massive proportions.
Maybe I no longer seem the same guy I was before, but that guy’s still there, just different. I have to be you see? Stroke has knocked the crap out of me; I had to become serious, get angry, FOCUS! Trying to deal with moving again, lack of emotions, the loss of my old life…..something only stroke survivors would really understand.
I don’t smoke or drink any more so I don’t enjoy the same kind of gatherings I once did. The new me wants to go out for meals and a good chin wag and…..oh, I don’t know… anything really.
I can’t change you. I HAVE changed but if you look close I am a better man, I really am and I want to still take care of you and love you!
Sorry I’ve held you back these last few years but I really BELIEVE we can bounce back stronger than ever. We ARE strong, we’ve proved that – and if we keep going it will only become stronger.
I love you Jade; together we can make it spunky!
BELIEVE in your Pete!!!!
