In Sickness & Health.....I'm on board.
I am VERY excited about this next series of posts for all of you!
OK, who am I kidding?!! I am actually beyond elated & appreciative because I believe we are tackling a topic that NO ONE has quite yet done on a website - Love & Chronic Illness.....from the boyfriend/spouse/caretaker perspective!!!!!
You will be hearing from Justin Daniel, Steve Silvia, John King & a gentleman by the name of Jud.
All four of these men are in love with women who have a very serious chronic health condition called POTS syndrome. All four women are dear to my heart & at vastly varying stages of illness. You will hear from a guy who is newly dating, a 'fiance', a husband whose wife took a turn for the worse & finally another husband who whose wife took a turn for the worse & then the better!!!!
I have NO IDEA what they are going to say!!! I am going to be setting up phone calls & email interviews with these guys over the next two weeks & then I will post as they share!!! Let's all be patient as my goal is to provide quality blog posts for you - meaning it's going to take some time (0:
I am thrilled about this b/c we are all going to be learning together the 'real world' perspectives of men who have 'remained' through sickness and health - and everything that entails.
While we are waiting, I am going to share an interview from Men's Health News (I will post shortly after this one). Bill Rancic (from Guiliana & Bill & other very successful ventures) discusses his 'Tips on what you can do for a sick partner'. I thought his tips were invaluable!! Also, just to give you some insight into my own head, I am a HUGE Bill Rancic fan. Yep, big big fan of him as a 'person'. He has every single one of the characteristics that I am personally looking for in the love of my life (above all 'consistency' in work, friendships & loving his wife). So, I tell some friends that I hope my own 'Bill' is standing across from me some day (0: Matter of fact, I think I will do a blog post just about Bill - why not! Thanks Bill for all of your insight, for being who you are and loving that wife of yours to the depth that you do!!
Enjoy your night everyone!
