We have been together for 8 years now and we got engaged 4 years ago, we started planning and preparations months after we got engaged but we need to postpone 6 months before the event since my family have doubts and concerns about my future wife.
She is suffering from unknown illness it makes her muscles weak and sometimes she gets paralyzed every time she is stress out or dealing with emotional issues. It was years after we found out that she has Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS) like symptoms, doctors can't pinpoint if it really is GBS or other form of illness.
I understand where my parents are coming from, no parents would want to see their child taking care another person all his/her life, sacrificing everything or regretting the decision their child made. I get it, its just that I love her and she loves me no matter who I am just like the first day I said hello to her.
We were supposed to go through with the wedding after a year from the first time we postpone the wedding I'm actually gonna go through with it even though my parents are mad at me and my fiancee after I heard all the hurtful words they can say about my fiancee and after all the hurtful words my fiancee's family got to say about me and my family.
Months before the wedding I was rushed to the Emergency Room since I'm suffering from stomach pain it turns out it was Cholecystitis (Gallstones) I hold the pain for over 1 year thinking its just acid re-flux but one night I cant take it any longer I need to be rushed in the hospital, all the money that I saved for the wedding need to be spent for my operation, confinement and medication.
After a year my Father got a stroke and later we found out that he needs to undergo heart bypass or else more complications will arise over the coming months, the little money I saved after a year I have to give it up for my Father and the best sacrifice I ever did.
After just a couple of months my fiancee got rushed in the hospital she needs to be closed monitored since her sickness is spreading, first is at her feet she can't even walk or even just wiggle her toes, then to her legs to her thighs just a couple of hours she lost strength to grip a pillow the tip of her fingers feels like being electrocuted or like someone is pricking her with a small needle over and over again, then couple hours passed she is having difficulty of breathing having chest pain or feeling that something heavy is laying on top of her chest.
The attending physician for my fiancee pulled me and her Mom to step-outside for a while, he told us the news about her condition and hearing it from a doctor a person who does not know anything or spent time, laughed, ate, watched movie, made debates, brought a gift, spent Christmas, watched the sunrise after climbing a mountain will tell you that she needs to be put into an ICU and the only way to get her well is a IV-IG therapy which cost half a million in our currency, and that is the only way to cure her disease and if not the illness will progress to her lungs and it will be fatal. I still remember looking at the window of the patients door seeing her sitting up in the middle of the bed and looking for something in her bag looking at her face while the doctor is explaining everything to us I saw her face clueless don't know what's going on or what is really happening to her.
What broke my heart is she must not know about her condition and how much will it cost for her to get better because she will quickly disapprove's the treatment she would sacrifice her own well being possibly her life just to save money and will not be the cause of her family's financial issue. I remember just opening the door and head directly to the comfort room and just splash my face with water and telling my self I can do this I wont show anything when I'm in front of her. I walked towards her and just smiled asked how she is feeling if she is hungry or anything and she noticed my eyes are red I just told her I mistakenly scratched my eyes with alcohol and it hurts so much.
My fiancee and I are still thankful because of her illness my family and her family came together surprisingly. While I was watching her after a week passed my Mom visited me and her in the hospital and her Mom was there as well, they shared jokes, laughter and my Mom even gave her Mom and my fiancee a hug before she left, after 4 years that my family trying to separate us, its because of my fiancee's condition that 4 years wound finally healed and once again me and my fiancee's relationship is open to my family which is before I could never do that no hints or clue that I spent time with my fiancee we need to hide from my family.
She still haven't gone to a half a million therapy she is already out of the hospital she is back in teaching again since she is a professor in business course but the symptoms is still there and the only way to suspend in progressing too much is constant medication.
To be honest it played in my mind to leave her but I always shrugged it off and always say to my self I can't stand the idea not seeing her smile not hearing her laugh, not listening to her voice even though she has a very boast full voice that will give you a kick in the brain, We beat all mountable odds and we are still going strong. I just love her and will still love her till we grow old and after 8 years I'm still in love with her.
We are planning to go forward with our plans to get married in December 2019, 6 months from now. Any amount of donation will be very helpful.
Thank you Thank you so much in advance, any amount is a one step closer fulfilling my wish for her to have a happy wedding and to make her very happy. Because all I ever wanted was to make her happy I hope you can help me.
I might not know you personally or even socially but I will always include you in our prayers always.
God bless you always...
