Another Step This Caregiver Has Taken

sand-768783_640I administered a shot of morphine to my sweet Elsie last night. I am not the dark destroyer of the love of my life, but it is a fact that I am now something beyond anything we have had together in our time together as lovers, friends, and partners.

Remember my drug of choice was Alcohol and I know first hand the pain of addiction. Opiates represent the dark side of life to me. Yes, it is prescribed, yes it is to comfort her, but now I take the role of God a step higher. Last night she said that she was ready to give up for the first time. I gave her permission and possible even hastened the final journey and our time together.

I will stay calm, and carry on with the opportunity I have been granted. I will not falter in the execution of a sacred trust that begun with our wedding vow and the words “For Better, For Worse”. I will be there for her.
