First off a little back story. My husband is a 27 year old Iraq veteran.

He was injured while on patrol, and has a severe spinal injury, a leg injury, a traumatic brain injury, and severe post traumatic stress disorder (Who wouldn’t after being blown up?). He can walk for short periods of time, with the use of a cane (30-45 minutes at most). The rest of the time he is wheelchair bound.

I’m 21. I married my husband when I was 18, and he had already been injured when I married him.

Everyone tried to talk me out of marrying a broken man, because I wouldn’t have a normal life. I married him anyway. We have been married almost 3 years, and I am told all the time how strong I am, and how hard it must be for me.
