I am a 26 year old female, at the peak of life and at the time at the peak of our relationship. On March 19, 2017 we laid our heads down to sleep that night, unknowing that in 30 minutes I will be calling an ambulance and performing CPR trying to save the love of my life. Damien Benson, my late boyfriend and best friend, lost his life to a fatal heart attack in his sleep at the young age of 26, with no warning. As of March 19, 2017 I began a new life journey without him physically in my life, but spiritually. I am on a journey to revalue life and bring meaning to my life "PURPUS." Trying to bring meaning and purpose from a tragedy. My main goal is to spread my story and ensure that others do not feel alone. Wether they lost a significant other, or grieving the loss of a loved one, or any heavy emotions involved with depression, anxiety, etc. There is HOPE and that hope is allowing me to see the light at the end of the tunnel, it may not be as bright or as close, but it is there. I am glad to have found this site and recognize others that truly understand my pain and the void that fills my heart. We are in this together, we unfortunately joined a club that we never imagined to have joined, but we will get through this TOGETHER!
Continue to spread love, don't be afraid to love and be loved.
