I don't know if any of you remember back in January when I had an accident. Well, it was no accident. I had been hiding my husbands alcohol addition from everyone for over a year. Jan 28th we were at a friends house when he got so drunk he cornered a pregnant woman. That was the line for me. I got between them and my husband beat me senseless before pulling a knife on me and tried to stab me. My friends husband got him off me and was injured badly. My husband cut him several times and tried to stab him in the heart. Luckily for all of us he was too drunk to function well. He is now facing 2 felony counts of assault with a deadly weapon and a divorce. The last few months for me have been the worst of my life. The man that I loved and supported for 8 years of marriage almost took my life and the lives of others.
I'm not making excuses for him, yet in moments of sobriety over the last year he has been there for me and supported me in reaching my goal. Living with him and his secret for over a year has been tough. I have been given a second chance at life and am thankful for this. It has motivated me more than I could have ever imagined. As of today I am 4lbs below my original goal weight of 180 and I have set a new goal of 150. I hope to reach it just after my 34th birthday in August.
I am sorry for throwing my personal life out here. I have come to trust you all and had to get this off my chest.
