It’s always strange to me how things come to be in my life and how much I needed an anchor but didn’t realize it until I met Amber. I was depressed, overwhelmed by life, frustrated by things I couldn’t control and contemplating suicide when I met Amber 13 months ago. She quite literally saved my life when we first met and here I sit a week after my check up with my doctor thinking back to the moment he told me I’m insulin resistant and on my way to type 2 diabetes. I remember 5 minutes before he walked in and said that to me how excited I was to get healthy for Amber so I can feel sexy again in hopes that I don’t lose her interest. That visit changed my life instantly and as I always do with everything I shared my news with Amber. Now, I am 40 pounds overweight but I have never thought of myself as having any real health issues so I was shocked and ultimately scared. Amber being true to form calmly and assertively said it was going to be okay, that we were already on a diet but she would do the new diet my doctor gave me so I wouldn’t do it alone. She’d support me through this and we’d come out on top of it. No carbs, no sugar, no soft drinks, no beer, I was in a panic. She’s been so stoic through this, I truly do not know what I’d do without her.
