Last week was Valentine’s Day — a day of romance and love. But like most holidays, I don’t think romance and love should be limited to one day’s celebration. It’s like Earth Day — we need to protect our planet every day, not just on April 22nd.
After 19 years of marriage, my husband and I continue to make an effort to go on “dates.” We use this word loosely. Dates, for us, does not mean dinner out. Dates, for us, does not mean a babysitter for our son. Dates, for us, are fit in while our son is at school.
But no matter how old we get, or how long we’re together, dating still isn’t easy. Though now the reasons have changed.
And on that note, I’d like to share that my personal essay, “How Dating My Husband Has Changed Since Becoming Chronically Ill” has recently been published on The Mighty. You can click here to read it.
