Throughout the years since meeting my wife, I have learned a lot about the importance of listening. But I wasn’t always good at it.
In the beginning, my wife was going through a lot of trauma. Mental and physical pain was alien to me at the time.
Endometriosis, depression, suicidal thoughts, anxiety, constant panic attacks, and O.C.D. She felt broken on every level, it took me a lot of time to learn.
Meanwhile, I was under the impression that my accomplishments in learning were my alone.
Nothing could be further from the truth!
I have been encouraged, sustained, inspired, acknowledged and tolerated, not only by my wife but the best friend I have in her!
She is my rock and without her, I wouldn’t be the man I am today. Despite her pain, endometriosis, and its mental health consequences, M kept fighting and supported me in my moments of doubt.
Thanks to her, I wrote “No amount of anxiety will push me away” and created this very blog. With M’s help, I am in the process of finishing my second book!
Writing gave us the opportunity to express our emotions and spread awareness about invisible illnesses.
