Nothing could have prepared me for what was coming.
I thought I had everything together.
I thought there was nothing which could stop me.
I was wrong.
All that I believed was wrong.
And there was nothing which could have prepared me for what was coming.
I can still remember when it happened.
I was in my house, watching the news when the story came on.
I remember how my breath disappeared and my heart sunk to the bottom of my stomach.
What had just happened? Was all I could think.
I thought, foolishly, for a couple of days that I could get through it.
That it wouldn’t affect me.
But I was wrong.
It destroyed me.
And the worst thing was that I couldn’t have seen it coming.
Even if I would have looked for it.
