Hi my name is Joy. I guess you could say that Robert is the one who made me want to live again. 2008 was a very bad year for me; in June I lost my job. In August I had a stroke, in September I had a heart attack, in October I had my first grand mal seizure, in November I had a series of cluster seizures and almost died. I thought that life was over, I had NO desire to even live. Especially when the doctor told me I had Epilepsy and would have to take medication the rest of my life in order to control the seizures.
Then on Christmas day at 9:20 a.m. my phone rang and I heard the voice of the only man I ever loved on the other end. Robert and I had dated 18 months to all of this and broke up because of a silly argument. That day I thought was going to be horrid like a lot of the days before, I was WRONG!
Well the phone rang when I picked it up I hear "Does the most beautiful woman in the world still live here?" I told him no, but I do. He said "Then I'm talking to her." We talked for over three hours, then he came and picked me up and we went over to his sisters house for Christmas dinner after he drove me around to visit my family.
We are together now. No, we are not living together yet, but he is raising his children and a grandchild, but that will come in time. Since he is back in my life I have lost over 100 pounds and I am getting healthy again.
I can't imagine my life without Robert in it. I talk to him 2 or 3 time a day during the week. He comes over to my house at least once during the week and we go out and EVERY weekend is ours. He has given me a reason to live again. He's the love of my life. We have promised each other 50 years with an option to renew and I will most definitely take the renewal!!!!
