Since it is pretty vague I am going to to write about my marriage. I am not sure how many people know that I am still married or that I have been married at all. My husband told me on Christmas day in 2009 ( I believe it was 2009) that he wanted a divorce and he told me through a text message. The reason we are still married is because I refuse to pay for the divorce because he ran up a credit card that was in our names to almost $11,000 and he expects me to pay it. I also feel that because he left me on Christmas day that he should pay for the divorce.
***This is was originally posted on October 12, 2010. I am going to be re-posting some of my MS posts because I have gotten so many new followers and I want to share them with my new readers.
I found a stat during invisible illness week that really shocked me but in the same sense it made total sense to me. It said that 75% of marriages where one person has a chronic illness end in divorce. I am shocked by this but I also know it is true because I am one of the 75%. When I worked at the nursing home I saw it all to often. Peoples spouses would leave them once they got sick. On the other had I also saw the husbands that stuck around. I was always in awe of the ones that stayed with there spouses.
It makes me sad that people are so shallow that they leave when things are going as they hoped. It hurts me because I was 100% honest with my husband before we got married and once he finally saw that I was sick he left a few months later. I would never leave someone because they are sick. I know there are a few good men out there who leave but more than not they walk away.
The reason I am not dating is because I don’t want to deal with another person getting scared and walking away. Since the MS is basically invisible well at least right now it is people can’t understand that I am sick. Once they do finally see that I am sick they leave because they “can’t” deal with it. I just irritates me that so many people are scared by something that affects me but I can’t change that about people. I know this post is all over the place but it was hard for me to organize my thoughts on this post.
As most of you have seen I have this quote on my sidebar. I have had it there for months and it is my all time favorite post. I had a blog critique done on my blog last week, which I have an up coming post on, and the things that she said about my blog gave me a few idea’s for new things on my blog. I am going to change the quote that is on my sidebar once a week. Also I am going to write a post about the the quote I chose each week. If anyone has any great quotes please feel free to email them to me at theworldasiseeit25 at gmail dot com with why you love the quote and I will put it up on Sunday. I am going to change the quotes every Sunday. This week I chose the following quote by Steve Jobs:
I found this quote today and I love it. I see so many people stay with the same person even if the person isn’t right for them. They stay because they don’t believe that they will ever find someone or they can’t stand to be alone. I have been single for a year or so now and I am okay with that because I refuse to be in a relationship with someone just because I am having issues being single.
