10/23: Our monthiversary and already we've been through a lot. They say that the first year is the hardest, and I suppose that's true. But I don't think it's really all that hard. Maybe because I have been mentally preparing myself for sheer hell and it hasn't been that. There have been times when I have questioned my decision, but I told myself that I could keep going. I guess what saved him the entire time was his family. You can never underestimate the importance of family, ever. It is more important than anyone knows in that moment you need them.
