Since my last post I have gotten emails from friends and others both supporting my stance and what I said and some siding with my so called friends who decided to put my wife’s health issues front and center and blame my Spiritual journey away from the Church as the reason she is sick.
I honestly do not understand that. I either don’t have the brain power to think clearly and understand where they are coming from or they are so completely stupid and naïve to think that a loving God would ever do that to one of his children or their family.
My wife has had this disease her whole life. It did not just suddenly appear. She has spent years battling misdiagnoses, medical tests and assumptions. It is nothing that I caused. It is something that is unique to her. It’s a trial that she is facing with her own mortal body. I am here to help her as much as I can. I try my best daily to do that. I love her more than words. She is the mother of my little girl. She is my best friend.
Do any of you think for a second that if I had any inkling that my spiritual beliefs had anything to do with her illness that I would not be the first to the Temple every day? I would not even hesitate and you all know that about me.
I don’t know why all of a sudden this is an issue that has come up. There are much more relevant issues right now with Liz and her health than people worrying about my spiritual well being. Or does that go hand in hand with how the issue is perceived?
I do not know why my friends are leaving at a time when I most need them. I feel that I have let them down for a reason that eludes me. I don’t know. Is it that I have asked for help on her gofundme page? Should I have not do that? One of the hardest things for me to do is to show my vulnerable side and let my weaknesses out and to ask for help. I am sorry if I offended any of you. If I did I truly apologize.
I just don’t know. It is something that I will probably not ever truly understand.
I feel sorry for the friends who have left. I feel that they are judging me on a merit that has no standing beside me not being exactly like them. I am the same person they have always known and the ones who have written in support of me, thank you. Your words of encouragement have meant a lot. And I am going to go against the grain and ask you, if you can, please donate to Liz.
I hope you are all well and I hope to hear from you.
