So for someone to say I didn't believe in him or fight for my marriage they are wrong. When his affair with another woman began in front of me I still fought. Even when I was in the ER because I had a panic attack so severe I couldn't breathe. Even when I was locked out of my room on my daughter's birthday. I fought.
I lost 3 liters of blood with my daughter. We had an emergency C-Section and my daughter wasn't breathing when she was born. My in-laws live on a dirt road. My brother in-law was barely doing 5 miles down our dirt road and I sat in the truck sobbing because of the pain it put me through. I didn't run off with Ally, I did what was best for my recovery so I could be there for my husband. It took between 6 and 8 weeks just for the swelling to go down enough so I could walk. I gave Joey the ultimatum to be with us in Fort Worth or stay in Bowie. He chose to be with his wife and child.
I left in 2015 because he chose another woman over me. We were in his bedroom with the other woman and I gave him one final chance to choose I us. I fought for a year while he was having the affair blatantly in front of me to save us. I did everything a wife was supposed to do and yes the depression was downright crippling but I tried so don't for a second think it's okay to post about something you know nothing about. Get all the facts before you think it's okay to post about my life.
I have worked hard to build the life Ally and I are living and I am damn proud of us. By myself we built a life for us. My family, Whatafamily, and friends have been huge supporters but at the end of the day we did this. We got ourselves a vehicle. We got ourselves a bigger apartment. We did and I won't let myself backslide just because someone has nothing but time on their hands.
I didn't plan my life this way but I am thankful for the life I am living. I have made the necessary calls and soon reality will kick in for those who think I am full of empty threats. For now, I am going to enjoy enchiladas and a movie with my honey and Ally. I am living my best life and it's all I could ask for. I'm not perfect by any means but each day I strive to do a little bit better than the day before.
