How Gratitude Got Me Through The Worst Time Of My Life. – My Story

love stories primetweets


Last year was one of the worst years that I have ever had in my life. My husband had been diagnosed with a pituitary tumor about 6 years ago and was put on medication to help reduce the tumor. At the same time, I started my menopause journey, so we were not on the same page at all.

After 5 years of struggling, it all came to a head last year when he made an impulsive decision that affected both of us. This decision sent us to counseling where we found out about the side effects of this medication. It turns out that the medication he was on was really used to treat Parkinson’s disease but one of the side effects was that it reduced pituitary tumors. Other side effects include gambling addiction, sex addiction, impulsive behavior, and the list goes on! That explained so much!

I had already been practicing gratitude so I was devastated as to why this was happening to me! For a while, I was angry at the Universe and took a break from practicing my gratitude.
But then I started to understand that what I asked for was happening. The changes that I wanted to happen were happening. Sometimes the pain brings better things. I am more conscious about the way that I phrase what I ask for as a result of this pain.

I began practicing gratitude again and can honestly say that it has helped me get through one of the worst times of my life. It gives me hope to create the life that I truly want for myself on a daily basis.

My husband and I are still working on things but I am so grateful that we were able to find out what was really going on.
Thank you, Universe! Thank you for The Secret!
