Thank You for Being There for Me, the Story of a Marriage


Awhile ago, I was living under a great deal of stress, and I was diagnosed with severe depression, that sort of pain was unbearable.  And so, I’d had to quit my job, and focus on getting myself better again at home, and, our household had one less set of paycheck too.

During this time, I’d often lose it at any big or small thing at home, and would start screaming at my husband, but he didn’t get angry at all, instead, he’d taken it all in, and tried to re-direct my moods.

Every once in a while, my husband would accompany me back to the hospitals, to talk to the doctors about my condition.  One time, the doctor told me, “You have a good husband, who’d accompany you back here each and every time, he truly cared about getting you better.”

Afterwards, as I thought back, this sort of an accompaniment had turned into a habit of sorts, because ever since we married, no matter if it’s going to see the doctors, to dine, to travel, whenever my husband has the time, he’d be right there, by my side.  Even though, we are not doing that well economically right now, but, my husband would console me, “Don’t worry, I’m here, just focus on getting yourself well again.”

My condition had improved, and now, I’m on the reduction of medications, I believe that no long from now, I can finally be cured.  And because of my husband’s constant companionship, I’d slowly found my sunny side back again, and now, I’d face every day with a bright smile, and, when I’d held conversations with others from time to time, I’d told of I’d been diagnose with depression, and everybody would shook their heads in disbelief!

Actually, I know, deep down, that this, is all because of my husband, I wanted to tell him, “thank you for staying by my side, to give me the courage to fight; thank you for accompanying me, to let me face all the difficulties in my life with more ease.”

And so, this, is what in sickness & in health looks like, and the husband was extremely understanding toward this woman, and he’d worked with her, accompanied her to the doctors’ visits, and never left her side, and, this, is MORE important if the man makes a TON of money, to give to you, isn’t it???  Sure is!!!
