"For all my life, I lived life, oblivious to the facts of the world that revolved around me, I thought running away from every problem in my life would be easy. I’m now a 35 year old woman who is deaf and legally blind. I was 17 when I noticed my eyesight was bad and my hearing not so clear, instead of informing my parents I decided to ignore it. It wasn’t until i was 24 before I realized my mistake, but it was too late to fix things, no matter what operation, the damage was done. I have only 2 friends I can completely trust because they are the only two friends that have ever put up with me and decided to support me in the long run of my life, I lost many friends because I didn’t want to deal with little arguments that got in our ways, I never had a single boyfriend because I was scared of breaking up, and I’m jobless because I quit every job that I decided was too much of hard work.
I want to thank my family and friends for looking after me no matter what. and most of all husband, Chris House, for chasing after me and proving his love to me, even after the 5 times I turned him down, I want to thank him for his decision on being the person that will change my miserable life and open my eyes to the real world, for being the person who wanted to spend the rest of with me till we grow old, there will never be enough to repay him for his love and support.
I want all you people out there to realize, that you can run from your problems, but you can’t hide forever, one day or later it will catch up with you and then the price you pay will be unescapable. Love the ones around you, love them with all your heart and look out for them, because whatever you do comes back to you, and thats a lesson I learnt” - Key
