Recently I realized the enormity of what I have done. I was not 2 years out from a massive stroke (3 of them), which completely depleted me of all strength and energy, but somehow I mustered up the strength to leave my terrible relationship that everyone who didn’t know the truth thought was so great. And I didn’t leave to go live with another guy or live with my parents, I’m living alone. This, despite multiple people in my OWN support system telling me that I shouldn’t leave. Jesus, I guess you can’t knock me down, although someone certainly tried with the strokes.
