At the beginning of this year I met someone and we both grew to love each other. We shared the good and bad moments and would always be there to pick each other up when others brought us down. We shared our music with each other for critique. He was my first Valentine.
He started having issues with his head and needed to have brain surgery done. So I went to check on him and he came out of surgery in critical condition and in a coma. He came out of the coma recently and he can't remember anything from the past four years so... he doesn't remember me at all or the moments we shared and he's also stuck in a dark place when particularly bad things were happening in his life.
I just spent my past half hour crying my eyes out in the bathroom. The doctor says he may never remember those four years that went by ever again. I'm in London studying, he's back home in Illinois. I hate the fact that I'm not there either.
This needs just an extra long hug.
That's a really tough situation to be in, and I am sorry to hear about that.
Being abroad definitely makes it much more difficult, but when you're back home you'll have the chance to at least talk to him and see where things go. Do you have any pictures you could show him of you two together?
I'm not sure if that would help or make things worse, but it might be worth a shot or something like that. I think giving something like this time to see where it goes may be best. Even if he doesn't remember or it doesn't come back, that doesn't mean he can't make new memories.
I hope all works out and gets better with time. *huuuuuuuuuug*
