21 Years ago today...

we were married. Sure seems like it isn't that long, but then again, maybe it does...:)

I was a naive 18 yr old, just out of highschool, working as a waitress. I was so head over heels in love and so was M. There is just nothing better than that new relationship feeling. You walk on clouds. The thrill when they walk in the room, etc...

It is too bad that it doesn't last forever, the feeling I mean. Maybe for some lucky souls it does.

I heard on a tv program the other day that when someone has been married a long time, and are asked why they love that person, they just say they do. And that is how I am with M. I couldn't really pick out any "reasons" to list off. I just love him.

To me, Friday night is the best time of the week. Work is over for the week and I try not to think of it until Monday morning! My first thought is to I don't get too much sleep during the week. Of course there are several other things that need to be done before I can sleep for a while:O)

Well, that is all for now. I will try to post more this weekend.

Hello. I don't know you but I know a lot about you.My heart goes out to you and I share your pain. I to am married to a schizophrenic man.We were also married just out of highschool just before his diagnosis. I've been searching for another wife out there, wondering if she exists and how she does it. Times are rough right now and it's hard to be hopeful. I truly trust in the Lord and know he hears my prayers. It's just a matter of keeping focused on Him and waiting it out. We've gotten through this many times and are still married and under all the tension from this illness we are truly in love. God's strength is sufficient cast your cares on him.
Big Hugs from, Maria

Walking on eggshells. That's what it feels like for me every day.

HI. I met a very nice lady who told me on our second date that she is SZ. Voices and Panic attacks. I understand the Panic because I had them myself after I lost my first wife in an auto accident. She is very quiet, but I can draw her out. She drives and attends night school to get her GED. Attends church faithfully. I have been reading a lot about SZ on the net and am scared.
Am I crazy thinking about getting into a relationship with her? I already kinda like her. Please help.
