My hubby, bestfriend, and hero

My name is Camille and im the luckiest girl in this world. Jared and Me went to high school together, but never dated. In 2003, our path's crossed again. We started hanging out all the time. Neither one of us, in the beginning,wanted a relationship. We both had our own issues going on. I had a beautiful daughter, who had just turned 2 and was recently divorced. From the beginning, there was this connection. Both of us felt it. The first year of our relationship, had lots of ups and downs. We started growing closer and stronger through the rough patches. We were totally different people, but we were mean't to be together. We married and had a child together in 2005. After she was born, I started having health problems. Jared, told me to just start staying home with the kids. Then, about 2-3 years ago, I had a really bad spell. Couldn't talk hardly, couldn't remember my phone number, tons of pain, right leg weakness. Scared, but he remained by my side. During 2009, I started getting worse. I hurt constant, my memory and thinking processes were slowing down, sometimes I slurred my words, extreme fatigue, etc. Finally, I was sent to Nashville to a great Neurologist. Immediately, he ordered testing. I found out I had Multiple Sclerosis. Lesions and damage up and down my spinal cord, brain stem, and on the brain. The Dr. said I might not be able to walk in 10 yrs without assistance. I'm only 28 now, my children are almost 6 and 10. They started me on the treatments 3 times a week. Since October, I've relapsed 3 times. My husband, for the last 7 years has always been there. He's the best Dad. Raised my daughter for 8 years, as if she were his own child. They both adore him. On his income alone, we've had to survive. Two years ago, he bought me a house. I've always had the good vehicles, while he might not of had heat or air in his. This man, has worked a hard job to support his family. Never griping because I can't work. I'm sick alot. Not to many good days. Even after he puts in a long and hard day of work, he does homework with the kids, cooks supper or helps, takes care of me when I can't get out of bed. He has made so many sacrifices for our family. I can truly say,I married my best friend. We just celebrated our 6 year anniversary on January 30th. I hope oneday to give back to him, all he's gave me. "Jared, I love you with all of my heart" I'm greatful for everything you've done for us. Your one in a million. Thank you for sticking by my side through thick and thin and sickness and health.
