Recently my sister told me that someone who saw me speak at the last fundraiser thought I was “amazing.” She then told me that this person said my husband was even more amazing. I wondered how he knew that without even knowing or talking to my husband, because of course, it is true. And I thought about it for a while. And in honor of our 10 year wedding anniversary yesterday and Father’s Day tomorrow, I wanted to dedicate this blog post to Noah- my amazing husband and tireless father of our two boys.
When I fell in love with Noah, I felt like I had been catapulted into an altered state. As a psychiatrist, I can’t really say it was a true mania, but it came close. I was euphoric and giddy and barely slept or ate for a week. I had found my true love. I felt a peace within me I had never known. I wrote in my journal that no matter how hard life was going to get, I knew it was going to be okay as long as he was by my side. I wasn’t afraid anymore of anything. And then three years later, life got hard.
