A man has just found out he has a year to live.
The 31-year-old has been dealing with a medical condition for a while, and always knew he’d have a shorter life than most.
But he’d been told he’d make it to 50 or 60.
But his condition has started to go downhill, and that projection has changed dramatically.
“A complication has cut that to 12 months, 16 at best. In about 10 months my condition should start to get a lot worse. After 12, I’ll essentially be living in the hospital,” he told Reddit in an anonymous post.
Elle Halliwell faced life and death in the same weekend and had to make a choice. Post continues after video.
Here lies the man’s dilemma.
He doesn’t want to tell his wife.
“I have been married four years (no kids),” he writes. “I haven’t had the heart to tell my wife the news. I don’t even know how. We always knew I’d die younger than I wanted to, but we never expected it to be this soon.”
As much as he knows he should, he doesn’t want his last year to be one of impending doom.
