Bonni: The Woman Behind the Words
As many of you knew, Mark suffered from Type I Diabetes, Hypertension (high blood pressure), and High Cholesterol. To add insult to injury, he was diagnosed with Stage 5 Kidney Failure, also known as End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) or Chronic Kidney Disease. He began dialysis in May of 2009.
Initially this blog told the struggles, triumphs, facts and survival of living with someone who had a chronic illness.
After Mark died, I almost decided to end this blog, but a friend of mine convinced me to keep writing. I took his advice, and I am glad that I did. Now this blog chronicles my struggles of the early stages of widowhood to meeting and falling in love with a new man. I have no idea where my life will take me. No one really does, but every day is a new beginning for me. I am loving life for the first time in a very long time.
Yes it can be scary and frustrating, but in the long run, I’ve set fire to the broken parts of my life and started anew.
This is my life. You are welcome to come along for the ride.
