D-Blog Week Day 3: My Biggest Supporter
Her name comes up frequently in my blog posts, and in conversations on twitter, but I’ve never posted a picture of her. Well, there have been inquiries about that, and since today’s post is about our biggest supporters, I thought it was only fitting to use this time to post a picture of mine.
Without a doubt, my biggest supporter is my girlfriend, April.
April & I have been together for nearly 8 years. We met at college, on the very first day in fact, and have been together since. We were together long before I was diagnosed with diabetes and congestive heart failure. I’m thankful that she’s stuck with me through the ups and downs (no pun intended) of the last year and a half.
April was in the doctor’s office with me when I was diagnosed. She was at my side during all of the testing, poking and prodding that took place before and since that day. She barely left the hospital during the week I spent in there last year.
April’s there when I have problems in the middle of the night. She called at 5:30 yesterday morning to check on me, because she felt that something was wrong. There are times when she knows I’m in trouble before I do. It’s scary, but true.
I can honestly say, I don’t know what I’d do without her. Thanks Babe!
