The Wrong Kind Of Falling In Love

, | Panama City, FL, USA | Boyfriend/Girlfriend, Popular

(I suffer from severe panic attacks due to abuse I suffered growing up. If my brain thinks I’m being hurt in anyway, it’ll shut down and go into panic mode. My boyfriend, does his best to help me through them. This happened while we’re making dinner. I ended up spilling burning hot grease on my arm.)

Me: *feeling myself starting to panic* “[Boyfriend]!” *hoping he would catch before falling*

Boyfriend: “S***! [My Name]! *lunges to catch me but fails*

(Two days later, I wake in the hospital attached to a couple of machines and an IV. My boyfriend has his head on the bed and is holding my hand.)

Me: “[Boyfriend]?”

Boyfriend: *jolts awake at his name and looks right at me. His face breaks out into the hugest grin* “Hey. You’re awake. Oh, thank God.” *his expression suddenly turns serious* “Don’t ever scare me like that again.”

Me: *completely confused* “What do you mean?”

(With that he figured out I didn’t remember, and slowly began explaining how I burned my myself, started to have a panic attack, and collapsed on to the tile floor, hitting my head. I had been unconscious for two days and he never left my side.)

Me: *crying* “I love you, [Boyfriend].”

Boyfriend: “I love you, too, [My Name].”

(I stayed in the hospital for another two days, recovering. It’s been a year since then and the panic attacks are a rarity. We are still together and still happily in love. No, I have not scared him to such a degree since then.)

Literally Until Undeath Do Us Part

| VA, USA | Marriage & Partners, Zombies

(When I was younger my mother had a health condition that led to an extended hospital stay. Three times while she was in the ICU she actually was clinically dead, and then revived. After she was released from the hospital at a follow up doctor visit my father made this observation.)

Father: “You know, our wedding vows said ’til death do us part.’ They never said anything about if you were brought back!”

I Love You Inside And Out

| Omaha, NE, USA | Marriage & Partners

(My sister-in-law has just finished having her first child by Caesarean section. My brother was present for it.)

Brother: “I love you on a whole new level, babe.”

Sister-In-Law: “Oh, that’s so sweet!”

Brother: “Now I’ve seen your internal organs.”

Love Cures All

| IA, USA | Golden Years, Marriage & Partners

(My mother is the in-house lawyer for one of the hospitals in our city and always makes sure to say hi to people in the hallways. This occurs with a woman that she has seen several times pushing another woman in a reclining wheel chair who is clearly completely disabled to the point that she is unaware of her surroundings.)

Mom: “Hi, there!”

Woman #1: “Hi, didn’t I see you at the Bar Association outing this summer?”

Mom: “Yes, I bet you did.”

Woman #1: “Yeah, I thought so. I haven’t kept up my license but I always like to go and see everyone.”

(They talk for a few minutes about the types of law they’ve practiced and where.)

Mom: “I see you here frequently. Do you volunteer with hospice?”

Woman #1: “No, this is my wife.”

(It turned out that Woman #2 had advanced stage Alzheimer’s and her wife, Woman #1, took her for a walk everyday even though Woman #2 didn’t have any clue who she was. Love isn’t always romantic but it is always beautiful.)

Labor Of Love

| UT, USA | Marriage & Partners, Top

(My wife is pregnant with our first child but her second. She had given her first child up for adoption after her ex left her on very poor terms.)

Wife: “Honey, will you be in the delivery room when our baby is born?”

Me: “Why do you ask?”

Wife: “Well, [Ex] couldn’t handle the sight of blood so he couldn’t be in the delivery room when our baby was born.”

Me: “Nothing will stop me from being in that room with you. If I have to drive a tank through the hospital wall I will be in that room with you.”

(The day she went into labor I drove her to the hospital and stopped by a toy store to pick up a little toy tank. I brought it into the room with us when our daughter was born.)
