But instead of dwelling on what 'could' or 'should' have been - seeing as I was originally given such a pretty dire diagnosis - I would instead like to focus on the flip side of the coin.
I may no longer have my job as a sports journalist here in Gloucestershire anymore, but I have - what I believe - is something far better.
In the last year - since my last "bleediversary" - I have somehow managed to convince my incredible girlfriend to marry me, and not only that, but she is currently carrying the future king or queen of the world inside of her.
My word that child is going to be a good looker if they take after their gorgeous mum!
As I have said before, I know I am incredibly lucky - and I have absolutely no idea why the universe chose to allow me to disprove the doctors' original diagnosis.
Without trying to sound too preachy, but if there is one thing I have learned throughout all of this experience, it is to make the most of your opportunity which is granted to you.
I am in absolutely no doubt, I would not be in the position I am in now if it were not for my wonderful wife.
She has quite literally been my heartbeat at times - as soppy as it sounds.
I still have no idea why she has stuck with me all of this time, but I am certainly not going to question it - or her! She may realise what she has let herself in for and scarper! I think that is one of the many reasons why I married her - because life without her in it would simply not be as good!
At the moment, she is currently experiencing something in which the doctors call "baby brain" - which is something which impairs your judgement, because of the raging hormones searing through her body.
But she surely could not have had it for the last four years - so I don't know what her excuse is!
My life has not been the same since March 2nd, 2013, and without trying to sound too depressing, but there is a good chance it may never go back to how it once was.
But I quite simply don't care - I try not to look backwards - I believe in looking forwards.
Onwards and upwards as they say.
I have married the girl of my dreams and we are expecting - what there can be absolutely no doubt about - one seriously good looking baby.
Amy summed it up perfectly during her wedding speech, when she said the events of one day changed the course of our lives forever - and that day was the day we met in Dublin on Valentine's Day, in 2012.
