March 21, 2022 was the day cancer took her soulmates life. Kaitlin Reagan opens up immensely and goes into what that day looked like for her, what the loss did to her, and how it has helped shape her into the person she is actively working on being today. This podcast is an evolution, watching someone who lost it all trying to find any way to pick back up and heal, and now telling her story to help inspire the world. A true love story that deserves to be heard. Hopefully this podcast can give you someone to relate to. Life could be unfair, but if she can make it out, you can too.
The Year Before: (Us)
In less than a year, our entire lives flipped upside down, and all we really had to keep each other sane was each other.
The Month Before
The moment the doctors told us that there was nothing more they could do for Francesco, was the moment I slowly started to fight demons in my head. The internal struggles of being in denial - trying to convince myself that he was not going to die. I lived in a world tortured by both extreme thoughts eating away at me, and didn't know which one was going to be the outcome. Francesco and I both struggled in different ways, yet continued to show up for one another however we could. In the end we never gave up on each other.
The Week Before
The week before Francesco passed away, Francesco and I had to accept that he's not going to be here much longer. We had the realest, most intense conversations with each other. I talk about what it is like to talk to the person you love from a perspective of knowing you may never see each other again. We had so much time to reminisce, and to be really be present in the moment. If only humanity could learn how to be so real with one another, other than in times of distress. Why does it take death for us to appreciate the best parts of a person?
March 21, 2022
The day that I lost my boyfriend to cancer, was the day that I truly felt my life was over; a pain that is indescribable. For a while I ran from this day, trying to pretend that it didn't happen just to get by. It hurt too bad to resurface. Once I found the strength, and realized I no longer wanted to hide from my truth, I felt empowered. Sharing your experience with trauma is powerful, and I want more people to understand that it's okay to do so.
You are so strong, and such an inspiration to many. This podcast brought me to tears, hearing his story and what you guys went through. Your love for each other is so strong. I’m praying and hoping you find peace knowing he is no longer suffering and at peace. Keeping you in my prayers always👼🏼❤️
I can’t even imagine what you’ve been going through these past few months. You’re so strong, even if there’s times you feel weak. Thank you for sharing such a vulnerable part of your life and raw emotions with us. I hope you find peace and closure knowing Francesco is no longer in any pain and know he will always be looking over you/with you in some way.🕊️ P.s I’m glad you’re back on social media. I’ve kept checking in on your page from time to time because I could not stop thinking of you and what you were going through. I’ve been praying for you and his family. Much Love ❤️
