3 years ago my life changed drastically, today marks the day I was discharged from hospital after a week of being in there due to poor mental health. Today marks the day that Rob came to the hospital with flowers and asked me to be his girlfriend. Today is the day that I am thankful for my life, for my little family, for friends, but mostly for Rob.
If it wasn’t for Rob supporting me through my darkest times, I can wholeheartedly say I don’t think I’d be here today and that’s sad, so so sad. Mental health can kill you and it’s something that I will forever raise awareness of. In the last 3 years I have done quite a lot, I might not be in university with a degree but I am sat here working from home with my own family, my own home and most of all I am happy. 3 years ago, I wasn’t happy. 3 years ago I was a completely different person.
I always say how thankful I am for my daughter, how she saved me from myself & how she gave me a reason to be here but quite often I fail to mention how much Rob has helped me too and honestly, he has been a champ. We’ve had our ups & downs as all couples do but we’re in it for the long run and even 3 years down the line, we would still choose each other over anyone else. You’d have thought that becoming a dad at 17 would have made him run a mile but he’s done nothing but stick by me and I am forever grateful for that.
I swear I couldn’t love him any more than I do right now, and yet I know I will tomorrow.
