28 years

Twenty-eight years ago today, which was also a Saturday like today, I married Judi Bassage. She was the love of my life, and when she left me 9 years later I pretty much lost my mind. Already an alcoholic, I took my addictions to a new level.

Six years ago next month, only two months out of my final rehab, I met Lisa Stewart - the real love of my life.

I consider myself fortunate to have been divorced from Judi for two reasons: one, it allowed me to be with Lisa many years later; two, the insanity and rampant addiction I went through after Judi left gave me the experience I needed to handle Lisa's death without going off the rails.

I used to love you, Judi, and I still did for a long time after you left. I hope you are happy today. Seriously.

  1. This is really nice. So many people bash their exes, sigh.
    You've learned a few things along your way.
