I met Jim 20 years ago. Our love was instant and everlasting. We were young, though, and after a couple of years we went our separate ways.
Neither one of us really got over the loss of the other, and in 2013 we reconnected to continue our story. Again, our love was instant. We never gave up! I moved to Colorado to be with Jim and begin our life.
Professionally, this was a big struggle. I was still in contact with my clients from Michigan. I wasn’t happy with the change in the mental health system. And my husband encouraged me to live my dreams. My business was born, based on our story and my awareness of the benefits of online coaching and advocacy. My clients were living proof!!
I didn’t know that I soon would be, too. On 12/27/2017, Jim collapsed at work and passed away. All I wanted to do was give up. But I could hear Jim telling me to live our dreams. I started to realize that my pain can help me to help others.
