I’m not sure what you’ll think about this but unfortunately… Chris and I broke up a few months agoL.  Almost three actually, even though it feels like forever ago. You might be surprised, I dont know but one reason we didn’t make it public is because we needed to figure this out for ourselves before we listened to what everyone ELSE thinks about it.

Now, I don’t wanna sound…I don’t know-conceited, but we were feeling the impact of fame more than ever before on our relationship. I’m scared that people won’t really understand and be kinda mad because they had such high hopes for us. Well, so did I!  I mean, I had thought we would get married too (like all engaged couples DO, CHRIS), HAVE KIDS, and live happily ever after. I still want all of that-REALLY BAD! Its just not how things are now.

But heres the thing: Even though we are technically “broken up “nothing about our relationship seems different. I guess its kinda confusing because we still kiss and hug and go out to eat and spend a lot of time talking on Facebook.  And when hes home we spend a lot of time together.  See?  Not much different!  Now I HATE(despise,really) that he comes and goes because of work (Im sure you’ve all seen my “countdowns “on Facebook), but that was the same when we WERE engaged because…hey, I want that music recorded as much as anybody! And even though we’re “broken up”, he still takes me out and everything. And I just really do want him to be happy. You all know I think he’s a good guy and he really is my soul-mate (a title we upgraded to from ‘best-friends’). 

But, I also, personally, want him to just be happy again and move beyond the situation that HE didn’t even cause.  I love him and our relationship so if this is what soul mates feels like, I am good! If he needs more, even though I AM classically jealous and I’m not sure how I’ll handle THAT I can still love him and he can still love me.

So don’t be mad, or disappointed, or whatever you might be that is bad because there isn’t just married or not married and this sucks for everyone but not because its bad but just because it isn’t what we planned.  So what?  Its what we have. There is not just ONE kind of love.  I have friends in same sex marriages and their love is not any less LOVE.  Neither is our “not getting married-soul mates forever love”.

I mean, we might even change our minds again one day. AND I SURE wouldn’t hesitate to go back to that with him because he is SUCH a GREAT guy. He really treats me fantastic. But Im sure any regular blog readers know THAT.

I love you Chris, the same as always even if it has a different name.

The question for YOU is...dun dun duhhhhh…are you still interested in us?

Juliana, I will try not to be stupid telling you something i think about your life. So.. Well, I'lltell you something I learned by myself. We must focus on find ourself, meet us, go deep in us. I think challenging you to be beyond the injury would make you shine, blossom, cause you're not that, you're not an injury. You are Juliana. To be not only inside you, be also out of you, is being alive. In and out, exactly how we develop our persona. This is the process of being alive, the infinite circle of action and reaction. Reacting to subjects, people, questions we have, things, places and acting through/by/despite subjects, people, questions we have, places. This circle exist only if that interaction is balanced. Action and reaction. In and out. Sometimes the best person to be with is ourselves. All we accumulate from that relation we construct alone with our mind, must go out of us, so it can came back and so forever. But we cannot try to find ourselves out of us, nor be locked inside. Chris is part of you life, huge, by the way. But your life is yours. You is who talk to you when you're alone, you is who see your world, who deal with your thoughts, laughs and fears. We are complex, we are the product of ourselves.

Julianna, ever since i learned about u and Chris, (which was in October, 2014), i have been obsessed with learning all i could about the two of u because the story touched my heart so much. I dont watch Anerucan Idol so th as ts y i never knew of u.
Since the story happened so long ago i decided to google to find out if u were still together...which led me to ur blog. I have to say that since i heard the song "What are words", they havent stopped running through my head. I thought that the words meant he would b with u forever. What i realized was when he says "I would never leave her when she needs me the most", might mean that u no longer need him and u r ready to fly on ur own.
Maybe u r both holding each other back somehow and he's trying to remedy that. I dont have the answers. I just have my opinions.
All i wish is that u both r happy and there is no doubt that he will almost assuredly b in ur life forever. Maybe just not how u want him to b.
U have triumphed through things who ppl never would have thought u could. U will triumph through this as well.
Chris, u have a beautiful voice and i personally dont understand y u dont have as record deal already. I wish u the best also.
U both take care and however ur love turns out im sure it will b for whats best. Thank u for reading my opinion. Remember, thats all it is.
Oh yeah, mom, u hold in there. Dont let what these fools r saying about u just wanting the fame and money offend u. They have no idea the cost it takes to take care of ur daughter. I commend u for doing whatever u have to do to make that happen. Remember to take care of urself in the meantime. Ur no good to Juliana if something happens to u.

I agree with you Fernanda!! Something doesn't sound right here... When you really Love..like the way you said you did you would never end it. Especialy for fame, music what ever the reasons! It doesn't even make sense to say you your soulmates if you guys don't want to be together! You can't live without your soulmate, it's like your losing your air. Sorry it's my opinion. Either way God bless the both of you.

Isso foi tão ridículo que fiquei com nojo...como você julga uma pessoa assim?Eles ficaram muito tempo juntos,e você nunca esteve lá para saber como realmente foi...pessoas terminam e voltam,isso é normal!Preconceito da sua parte foi achar que eles terminaram por causa do acidente...se eles são um casal normal tem todo o direito de terminar,não?
Simplesmente reconheça a humanidade do outro antes de julgar...

Larissa Navarro
06/27/2014 12:25pm

Barbara, concordo com você! Literalmente um casal podem se separar com livre e espontânea vontade de ambos. Dizer que o motivo foi acidente ou fama, é literalmente ridículo. As coisas não funcionam assim, pessoas com mente fracas pensam dessa maneira. Não sabemos o que levaram a eles terminarem o casamente, isso só pertence á eles! Para todos os casos é uma situação bastante complicada, eles viveram durante anos juntos, antes e pós o acidente de Juliana, mesmo com a separação, Juli citou no texto que eles tem uma relação amigável, então veja bem, há um afeto muito grande um pelo outro. Não podemos criticar, jamais! Porque muitas vezes um casal se separa e cada um segue sua vida sem se importar com o outro, mas nesse caso não é assim, Chris se importa, independente da separação há um vínculo de carinho.
Que Deus possa abençoar a vida de vocês, que sejam fortes! O melhor para vocês dois está por vir. Felicidades <3

Acho sua ideia estúpida. cada um sabe de si e já ficou muito claro que o amor que houve um dia ou há ainda é amor de fato.

08/29/2014 9:37pm

Você realmente não faz ideia do que uma pessoa que passa por uma situação dessas, pode sentir. Eu que nasci com deficiência passei por muitas situações difíceis em que me vi como um fardo na vida da pessoa que eu amava, me via de certa forma, atrapalhando o crescimento dela. E se você ama alguém verdadeiramente, você a deixa livre. Se ela partir, nunca foi seu. Agora se ficar. Julie provavelmente achou melhor deixá-lo livre na esperança que ele possa viver a vida dele e quando/se achar que o amor deles pode superar tudo isso, ele com certeza voltará. E ela a cada dia estará ainda mais recuperada. Cresça e amadureça. Ridículo o comportamento de pessoas que foram absurdamente arrogantes com quem não entendia o que foi escrito em português aqui. #VergonhaAlheia
-------------
You really have no idea what a person may feel with a situation like this.I was born with disabilities and I went through many difficult situations which I saw myself as a burden in one's life that I loved, I saw somehow hindering the growth of it. And if you truly love someone, you let him free. If he left, he was never yours. Now if he stay. Julie probably thought it was the best to let him free hoping that he can live his life and when/if he find that their love can overcome all this, he will, with no doubt, return for her. And every day she will be further recovered. So please, grow up. Ridiculous behavior of people who were absurdly arrogant who didn't understand what was written in Portuguese here. #ShameOnYou

The love and bond between the two of you is something that glows for the whole world to see. I share my opinion out of care for this. If you despise every seperation and count the second till he is back you might be suffering from seperation anxiety. And there is a cure for that, and with just a little energy put in to it you will overcome Juliana :-) I know because I have been there myself. I think i might not be the seperations you hate, it is you, being addicted to his presence you despise. You are a strong individual, and being dependent is in conflict with that. I wish you all the best.

Your love story touched us all and I know deep in my heart that the love you two share will go on forever. It may be different but love is love and you can't change it. I hope and pray that if Chris is to go on with his life that he doesn't change his ways with you. I believe his love and commitment was a big part of the healing process you went through. Love and prayers sent to you Juliana and to Chris and to your family, I know this must be hard on everyone that loves you. Juliana you have obviously been kissed by an angel to come as far as you have, keep up the good work, stay strong and remember you have a lot of people to share your love with so don't hold back my dear. xo

4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. 8 Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. 9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part, 10 but when perfection comes, the imperfect disappears. 11 When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put childish ways behind me. 12 Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known. 13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

I have just heard about this love story today. He has to work and God has given him the talent to sing. Would you say anything if he went back to work as an engineer? If he becomes rich and famous he will have more money to help Juliana and her Mom, more access to the medical world that might have the answer to her recovery. If he is happy, she will be happy. It is easy to judge when we have not walked in other people's shoes. Everything changes constantly and that is healthy, we don't know what the future holds. I am sure their love for each other is no longer only the romantic love but something much stronger that goes beyond "marriage" vows. This story has surely helped many people even if only one becomes a better person. So many people following and caring and yes hoping for the "Happily ever after" story. Gives us hope that "happily ever after" stories exist. Good luck Chris with your music; this is probably where God wants you at this time. Juli's Mom, I think God has given you a challenge that He thinks will make you grow and be a better person. I'm sure there have to be times when you are sad and lonely. Hope you do have some time for yourself to keep balance in your life. Juliana, you are an inspiration to the rest of the world.
Thank you. God Bless! :-)

P.M. if you are referring to me, I mean I don't think any of this has to do with fame or money at all. It's about intimacy. I knew this would happen to, not because of either of their characters, they are good people. But we are ALL human. We ALL need things. Intimacy is a need. I know he will ALWAYS love Juli and I know when he gets into a new relationship it will be hard on him, as well as Juli. This isn't the life they planned out for themselves but well, as we all know, shit happens, no finger pointing, it is what it is. I too have been a loyal follower since AI and I always will be for both of them. I won't even begin to sit here and say how I understand because I have never walked a day in their shoes! My thoughts and prayers are with both Chris and Juli and just as their relationship is defined: different, their NEEDS are both also: different now.

Are you seriously saying that? Sick to even think about that. Weirdo!

Christine, thank you for the apology. I used a poor choice in wording with my initial post we both agree. Just because I support the decision, doesn't mean I don't have or am entitled to an opinion. You open your life up publicly and what do you expect? Whether public or not, people are always interested in the WHY!!!! I mean this with no disrespect, but I am not going to sugarcoat my opinions. Juli is a grown woman. I have never said a deragatory word regarding WHY this ALL happened, ever, because I am not going to judge hers or anyone elses poor choices. Let's be honest, I am NOT wrong. Intimacy is a HUGE part of a relationship along with trust. And there is no doubt they trust either fully and that Chris is being honest to himself and to Juli. If I offended anyone else by my 2nd post, no one is saying anything but you. They cannot be intimate, they cannot in anyway have the same relationship that they once had, that we ALL fell in love with, that they fell in love with and they MAY never have again. Why did I put my name as So sad, because it is (by the way, I notice you didn't give your full last name either on your FIRST comment). The WHOLE situation since the accident to this present day and the way their whole lives they had planned out changed....any ending of a relationship is sad, this one is no different. If they (Juli, Chris and Janet) are so offended by my comment what can I say? I'm sorry for giving an honest opinion? Because Juli as a TBI is that why we have to be sensitive to what we say? Or do people assume she can't handle it? I am sure having their relationship status change is extremely difficult, not the likes of my comments that come from someone like me who they don't even know. Don't put yourself out there for their entire public to have free access to your life - this is for anyone, and then get pissed when someone has an opinion that you may not agree with. The world isn't made up of everything sugar and nice! I stick by opinion, like it or not. I support them both equally and am equally interested in their futures engaged or not engaged. Have a good day and thanks for your more substantial response :)

Wow! Perhaps in my initial post I did not use the best of choice of words but my second reply was nothing short of the truth. If you want to reply to my comment at least reply with some substance and like an adult without name calling. The truth hurts no doubt and NOTHING I said in my follow up reply makes me sick or a weirdo. Next time you reply, find something better to support your name calling. And Lori, I am not judging I am stating truth, and it hurts sometimes.

Ok so maybe it was childish on my part to call you a weirdo but I do think its sick to even think or make the comment about sex. You know what gets me is that Juli, Chris, Janet and the rest of their family reads this. Friends and supporters as well. But dont you think with negativity or comments as you said are hurtful. As you said we are ALL human. Well in saying that humans have feelings. Ok so you had poor choice of words but as a supporter of them why would you do that? Im not being an ass but I just dont get why its anyones business to WHY they chose this. Just continue to be a supporter a fan or whatever. And as a surrporter...when you made that comment you also used the name "so sad" why? Why hide behind an anonymous name. Be real and let them know who you are. No making up a name. Im sorry if I offended you calling you a name.

You will always be apart of each others lives in one way or another. God Bless you both. Peace!!!!

Do not judge them, you don't know what storm I've asked them to walk through - God

There is so much truth to that quote, so with that said to all of you out there trying to be judge & jury to people you don't know, ask your self before you type any "words" ...What if this was your son dreams, your daughters recovery, your brother, sister, or fiance future... what if it was YOU walking the storm, would you want people to judge you or the people you love most? I'm sure that Chris & Juliana or their families would not wish these difficult times they've endured or decisions they have had to make on anyone.
To Chris & Juliana & your families, I wish for you all to be happy, healthy & successful in what ever, and where ever your paths takes you. You ALL inspire me and awe me and your love & commitment to each other doesn't have end with a marriage license, but may it continue to be forever; what ever that looks like for the two of you and it's ok if it looks different :)

It feels like we have gone on this journey with you both from the day we met Chris on Idol..... We have been here watching your journey and travelling along with you. I along with others was sucked into the whole fairy tale ending dream..... I think all along deep down inside it didn't seem like it could end that way... but it was something I couldn't think of because it felt "yucky". I wanted so much for you to be able to marry your love... but I too have a soul mate that I married and I can say married or not, soul mates are the best.... So to answer your question.... YES.... I am still interested in you both... together and separate. I admire your love for each other and will always support you as well as pray for your continued recovery. Love you Juliana!!!!!!

Hey juli, I remember when I first heard about your story it was truly touching, you inspired me so much and I thought about you everyday. at the time I could not understand why I knew about you.... I really can't remember when it was I know it was after hearing about your story and getting in touch with you that I was t-boned by a speeding motorist who was driving with no headlights on, I am NOT comparing my injury to yours but I do understand what its like not to be the same person you were before a brain injury. luckily for me I have improved..... I remember I had so many fits of rage and depression. basically what I want to say as I know it is a tough road, I admire you and your strength! a brain injury is a difficult thing to deal with for all parties involved, and there is not anybody on this earth that can understand that better than the people that are involved. you are the strongest person that I have ever known!!! I love you and Chris both! :-) so to answer your question, yes I think I speak for many we all say yes! and for those who don't just say bye bye to them! oh yeah and definitely ignore all of negative comments!

Ah, sad to hear about your break up. Because no break up is fun. To be honest i don't think it should matter what people think. This is your life. No one elses! :) although I understand a lot of people are inspired by your story. But you are also people apart from eachother and that's important. So whatever people say I personally look very much up to both of you. Even if you decided to break up! A new chapter in life! I hope though you whatch your heart a little ;) for all the confusing stuff. Because as you said everything is still the same... but it also isn't. So in the future you might have to consider to not spend so much time together maybe? Just some advice to not make it too difficult for yourselves. Been there done that! A lot of blessings for both of you! X

I am sure you will find your charming prince one day, and get married. Lucky him, that will get your love ❤️! And at last - you are not less loved because of this!

Dear Chris and Julina: I used to beleive in real love ever since I saw your case; you made me a beleiver. Now I don´t know what to think. Your break-up has brought a lot of questions about life, love, relashionships. I feel truly sorry and I try to explain to myself the causes for two soulmates to take separte ways (call it by the name you want, but that´s a break-up). You guys are causing a lot of people like me to question everything now. I know it´s not of our business, but explaining the reasons would help a lot for the people that follow you, appreciate you and feel pain now because of you. Love, <3.

I'm so sorry to read this :( However, I also understand, as it's not an easy situation to be in and you guys really really tried to make it work! Not many people would even try to make a relationship work for as long as you and Chris did. Kudos to the both of you! It also takes courage to make such a decision, especially if you feel that the world is watching you and everyone is "expecting" you to stay together forever. I however, did not expect this, I have been waiting for this to happen, as Chris has been mostly away from you, concentrating on his career. I have been thinking that it's only a matter for time before the relationship is over, and now it is. I wish you both all the best of luck as good friends/soul mates and good luck getting to another place in life. One day Chris will come home with another girl and you will have to deal with the jealousy and hurt, it will be tough, but you will make it through, you are strong! You are definitely not less interesting to me! I was already expecting this to happen sooner or later and I will continue to follow you no matter what! I have never seen you guys as a "perfect love fairytale" and I don't know why some people had the need to put you guys on a pedestal. You guys are only human, and break ups are part of being human. Good luck Juliana, you will be ok!

Hi Juliana!

Im really sorry to hear that you two broke up, I know it must have been heartbreaking to make that decision.
And Im sure this is not about that you have LESS love for eachother, but sometimes the "kind" of love change a bit.
Anyhow its always sad when life take a turn we relly dont want.

But one thing im sure of, Chris love and respect you really really much, and that you have a big place in his heart that NO ONE ever can take. And like you say Juliana, there is not just ONE kind of love. I guess every kind of relationship thats full of love is something good?
Whatever happens in the future i hope the best for you both, you are really amazing people that deserves the best.

And finally,Of course i will keep on following you both. And you Juliana have never been something that just "comes along" with Chris. You ON YOUR OWN are an amazing person that I admire a lot and thats why i following you!

Sometimes this is just what happens, I know because I am so much inlove with someone but I just can't be what she needs me to be for her. My love for her will never stop and my my heart will never stop beating for her, it was love at first sight with her and for the first time in my 30 years I am inlove.. Love is not about rings, or certificates or vows.. Its about what the heart and soul feels and craves, the world will never stop fading when she walks into a room, and the sun holds nothing on her glow when she sees me and smiles.. I live my life in pain knowing that forever as long as that may sound will be empty without her.. I send my blessings to you and Chris both, and many hugs <3

If you don't, you guys are still going to be great friends for life. You two have been through so much together and no matter what happens, you will always be in each others lives.And even if you two part ways even as friends down the road, then that's what you guys think is best. You two have been so public ever since American Idol and it's not always easy to be in the spotlight, but I think what you two are doing now takes so much courage and strength. You two are strong people and I think it's important that you guys are doing what you feel is best.

For those of you quoting "What Are Words" to imply that Chris DIDNT mean it, maybe you should pay attention to the meaning of the song. Its not about marriage. It is about saying you love someone and then showing them. Chris has done that in spades. Sounds like both Chris and Juli don't plan to change that either. They just aren't going to be a married couple, or maybe even a 'couple' at all but instead two people forever bonded by love. Better than most of us can say. Love you both still.

This changes nothing for me, I will always support you and Chris regardless. You are both amazing people with strength, ambition and talent and you both deserve to be happy, whether it is with a new boyfriend or girlfriend or if you eventually end up getting back together. Travelling does make it hard to see each other and naturally there are cases where feelings change and it is probably for the better to be friends at this point. But I'm glad you both still feel love (a different kind of love, as you said) for each other and are each other's best friends through thick and thin. I will remain a fan of Chris and his music and I will always support you in your recovery! :)

Chris, I prayed your music career would take off to places where you wanted it to go and for Juliana's health to become the best for both of you to be deeply happy with. So...all in all....if you both are happy with your new friendship then why should we all be upset? If you're all happy, then we all should be happy. May your love for each other grow with each new experience you both have. This could work in so many great ways. Embrace it, go with it and deeply enjoy it!!!! Hugzzzz

Hi Juliana ,
I m from Singapore and I have been reading your blog for a very longtime . You are a beautiful person both inside and out. I saw those videos on youtube , of you when you were in a Coma and how Chris Medina was there to try and wake u up , and read about him trying convince folks there is someone in there - not to give up home . I believed that was what kept you fighting . To stay alive despite all that trauma from accident .

So yeah , he was there every step of the way during your recovery . You story touched many Nations . This is very heartbreaking that you are broken up . But we will always be interested in your story babe ! Medical science is very advanced, you never know if things might progressed to a point where yo get a way lot better . Always praying for you !

Relationships always go up and down, I know yours did before the accident too and every married couples relationships do. The only important thing is to be honest, juste and loving to one eachother.

I am even more interested now to keep follow your life and see what new doors that will open, maybe a new great man enters soon. Then you will have two of them!!

After rain comes the sun! Keep look at the great side of life! Big hugs to you and also to Chris Medina! Lots of love to you wonderful people being there for eachother, honest and caring, always.

Juliana, I wish you both the best of luck for the future. I recently split up from my fiance whom I love dearly and I understand your 'not getting married-soul mates forever' love. Sometimes in life things happen not the way you've planned them (even more often than they do turn out according to the plan) but this doesn't mean it's bad. I believe God gives us the things we need as and when we need them most. The best thing is - you will always have a soul mate!

I wish you both all the best, sometimes things just don't go as we plan and it brings us sorrow but I thing you handle this really well Juli and I think that your love is so huge that you are able to let him go...but still have him as a soulmate. But a broken heart hurts really bad and as you say...time really stands still until one day you realize how much better you feel.

I still think you're both wonderful people. But other peoples opinion don't matter. Its what makes you both happy. And whatever the both of you need. And love comes in many different shapes and forms.

Those people who are on here to spread negative bile all over the comments should take their negativity elsewhere. Nobody knows what happens behind closed doors and its nobodies business but Juliana's, Chris' and whoever they choose to share it with. I will always be a fan and will continue to follow Juli and Chris' journey if they choose. As long as they are going to be happy is what matters most.

Dear Juliana.
You must be going through something so hard right now, and I think it's amazing for you to share. Nothing changes for me. I just hope that both you and Chris find the peace in whatever you guys choose. It does not matter what anyone else think..
You are so amazing, no wonder you are his soulmate ❤️
God bless you both!

Oh and another thing "Helen"...the only money Chris made was from the song What are Words and all of that goes straight to Juliana's trust fund to pay for her lifetime of therapy. Almost five years later, 13 years total and he is accused of 'doing it for fame'. So tired of how rude people get when they can hide behind being 'anonymous'.

Truly having you post this derogatory and inflammatory post is so spiteful. Derogatory and presumptuous - surely you hold no love in your heart or compassion for either of these two. To come here and post your spit the way you have. I feel sorry for you!! truly I do because YOU and I and everyone else have NO clue as to what either of these two young people have had to go through. Nor do we know how their families have had to deal with the change that had happened due to a tragic event. THEY DO!!! Get off your donkey and start living your life because truly you are attempting to just stir the pot to cause issues. Defamation without truths!!!

1 Corinthians 13:4-8 Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends.

I would't take notice or listen to the comments of those ignorant people who don't for a second understand what you two have been through together. In some ways I would almost feel sorry for them because they cannot have experienced a proper love, a deep love likes yours, a love that understands that sometimes no matter how much you want to be with someone sometimes you have to let them go... as heartbreaking as it is and through no fault of your own and it takes very brave people to do that. Just because you are not together in a traditional sense does not mean that love is still not there... there is always going to be love between you and it is not any less than the love of before..it is just different and maybe in some ways even more special and beautiful. The support that Chris has shown you following the accident speaks volumes of the bond you had before and the bond you continue to share. Of course you and Chris never would have hoped for this, you had an absolutely unbearable situation forced upon you at a very young age, you have faced so much adversity and weathered some very tough times that many of us can't even begin to understand

Although my heart aches for you Juliana, that you didn't get to have the life you wanted, the life you planned, my heart aches for both you and for Chris but at the same time my heart sings to watch your recovery, to watch you face your day to day challenges with such strength and beauty that must come from a very deep place. I admire you and you should be very proud of all that you have achieved x

I am do disturbed reading all of the negative opinions here. Chris has done so much more then most young men his age would have done for Juliana and will still continue to be there for her. All the references to "what are words" being a lie?? He is not leaving her, he will still be there for her and he has always been there when she needed him most. It has always been obvious that Juliana has been his biggest support and encouraged him to pursue his dreams. I do not feel at all that Chris used Juliana.
Yes, the relationship had changed, not ended. But so have many things in the relationship over the last several years. We just have to adjust our lives with the changes which is exactly what they are doing.
I wish the very best for both Juliana and Chris and absolutely will continue to follow you both.

A man who says on facebook that she looks in the mirror and see a monster... A man who complains about her fiancee gaining weight after the accident... He IS shallow.

He had the most beautiful girlfriend and now he looks at her and can't see the beauty she reflects both from inside and out...
He was on and on about it on several posts and in facebook and twitter. He never let her old image go. He was lingering to that hoping that someday a miracle will make her the same.

If you say "he loved her" it's true. But he doesn't love her anymore. He LIKES her but she'll never be the old Juliana. That's why he's leaving... to a shallow life, based on appearance... forgetting that when she was the perfect, popular and gorgeus girl, he was fat, unknow and not focusing on his career.

Now his whole life changed because of her and he's famous, all about working out, travelling... and she doesn't fit his new life.
It's okay, let her think that he'll find a "perfect" girl to have a perfect life... He's forgetting thar he's very far from being a great match.

I hope she has everything she deserves, I wish her the best in life.

To him... I hope someday he'll grow up and learn from his mistakes.

To All The Juli and Chris Fans:
I am utterly appalled and thoroughly disappointed that as soon as things go "south" in that form of relationship, you all jump ship and point fingers and start making ignorant statements. Although they have lived their relationship in the public, it does not belong to the public. We have no ownership over it or the decisions that they have made. What they do it truly their own business, and they will make the best decisions for themselves. You should show some respect for them and their families. And picking sides is plain immature. If you have been following them both and routing for them in their endeavors, this blog changes nothing. It opens our eyes to another aspect of their life, but it should not change how we feel as outside strangers. Get it together and stop bullying Juli, Chris, and their families online. Please and Thank you! And if you can't help yourself and have hate mail to send, email my personal email atarisrokerchic@yahoo.com and i'll be happy to redirect you.

Juliana,
I am a Mom of two young women of your age. I feel that if someone has not had this type of experience in their life, their negative opinions cannot really matter or be justified.
No one should be angry with you or Chris if they have not been engaged, and had the person they love, experience a serious injury or illness.
Many couples distance themselves very quickly after illness or injuries and you both stayed together as long as possible to comfort, support and love each other and obviously tried very hard to continue your lives together.
That is true love, devotion and kindness at it's highest level.
People need to try and understand that although there is a certain amount of "fame" in your story, this is real-life for you and Chris.
They do not see the day-to-day struggles and/or even the special times.
We unfortunately live in a world where some people feel they have a right to judge us without a full understanding of what our lives are about.
The kind and compassionate people who know of your story will accept you and Chris for who you both are and will want the best for both of you.
Perhaps all negative comments should be deleted from this post so you only receive positive encouragement. You deserve that.
You and Chris have the right to the type of relationship you both want and need. I am so sorry about your engagement, but know
there is beauty in all forms of love.
I wish you, Chris and your families all the best.
Abby

Chris, if you read this I can say that I have been where you are. I have been criticized for 'moving on' as if I decided that I couldn't handle supporting a disabled person. In my case, (and I wonder if it is yours too) my fiancé was not able to really reciprocate my feelings entirely and it was empty and lonely. When we discussed 'breaking up' he said he was sad but quickly talked about the other superficial things that he clung to. My heart broke. I felt like, if he was not even hurt that much then why was I so distraught??? It was the loss of the dream. It was the knowing that I had to let go of something that might never come back.
But you are both brave for attempting to tell the public that there is more than one way to love someone in this situation.
Maybe someday they will even listen.

Juliana, Chris, and Janet,
You opened your lives and world for all of us to see. All of it, the good, the bad, and the raw. We have all learned about the meaning of the word love from you. We have all learned about the meaning of the word acceptance from. We have all learned about the meaning of the hope from you. We have all learned the meaning of the word perseverance from you. We have all learned the meaning of the word strong doesn't mean you don't cry, don't get mad, don't make mistakes.
But mostly we have all learned that no matter the grief, exhaustion, or despair, that there is a way through it.
And from those of us who were in desperate need of that light in the dark, I thank you all. From the bottom of my heart.
Your journals are a rock we lean on.
Changing a label, changes nothing.
And I am sorry that others are not seeing it that way.
You each embody a kind of love that we all need more of.

Not because I am sad, but because you are so beautiful and it really showed with everything you just said. You are so mature and strong for putting yourself out there like this.

Eu conheço um caso parecido. Há uns 15 anos atrás, meu primo de segundo grau, estava em direção ao seu casamento, em seu fusquinha, quando um trator passou por cima dele. Ele sofreu danos cerebrais, na coluna vertebral e ficou tetraplégico. Após dezenas de cirurgias, e transplante de medula, os médicos conseguiram reverter para paraplégico e com a graça de Deus, ele movimenta do peitoral pra cima.
Enfim, a noiva dele não desistiu tbm.. Eles se casaram 6 anos após o acidente, e vivem felizes para sempre. São um casal muito apaixonados até hoje!!
O que quero passar é, que não desistam um do outro!
O amor sempre vence!

They were nice enoughost to share it with us and we have all had the privilege of getting to know this beautiful couple together and separately. I believe they are soul mates and will always love each other. Yes, this has brought Chris some fame, but I don't believe for a second that is what this is all about. Those attacking Juliana's mom....stop already. Good Lord. Walk a mile in her shoes before your judge anyone. For those saying Chris is available.....you are tacky and classless. Stop attacking and support them. Juliana, sweetie, ignore these people. People can be so cruel and hateful. You know the real Chris. Hold onto that.

Don't listen to the negativity of others. At the end of the day, your relationship with your family and loved ones is all that matters. It's great to have supporters out there but there's also some evil insecure trolls who have nothing better to do with their lives than to say cruel words. Those people are miserable and have some serious insecurities.

You are incredibly honest, strong, beautiful and tremendously loved. What happens between you and Chris can only be defined by you and Chris. Nobody knows what you two have gone through. Therefore, the opinion of others don't really matter.

Your story isn't finished yet, it's just changing. Whatever happens in life, you are incredibly loved.

Don't get pulled down by the negativity of others.

Tapi kesedihan saya berubah menjadi kesedihan yg sebenarnya (teramat sedih dan sakit) karena mendengar juliana dan chris "broke up". mungkin ketenaran lah yang membuat kisah cinta kalian berakhir. bagiku juliana tetap lah seorang wanita yang cantik yang ceria dan chris sangat rugi bila harus kehilangan dirimu, karena apa? because chris medina whitout juliana is nothing and otherwise. kalian berdua saling melengkapi. perpisahan kali ini akan memberikan pelajaran bagi kalian bagaimana rasanya jika terpisah satu sama lain.saya berdoa semoga suatu saat nanti kalian akan bersama lagi.

This is a big change for each of you. You two were kind of glued together by fame, I think. Now you and Chris can each rediscover yourselves as individual people. You will find out more about your strengths, and have a little more space you can grow in.

There will never be another Juliana. You are so unique and individual.

Stay strong and be kind to yourself!

Beautiful Julie, I am so sorry to read this. I was just on Chris' Facebook and was going to tell him how wonderful it was that the "fame" and "Hollywood" hadnt got to him and that he really is admirable. Itseems like this "break up" was more coming from him than u. Was it mutual? I'm still a huge fan of his music but I'm confused by this.there is something I want to comment and ask you but I dint feel right posting it so publicly, is there a place to send it? You are beautiful inside and out and a very strong woman. God bless you.

I have never had the pleasure of meeting Juliana, but know Chris family from way back. His mom and grandmother cared for my son when he was very young. I hve known many of his family members. The apple does not fall far from the tree. These are people with a lot of kindness and goodness in their hearts. Chris is also this way and does not by any means deserve the negative remarks posted here. Is there fame in his life journey, yes. Did he set out to exploit Juliana, absolutely not! If you watch some of the Youtube American Idol interviews, he was seeking a way to help Juliana after a terrible tragic accident. He was her caretaker along with Julies mom. Yes he is talented in his music and why not seek a career in something you excel at. Doesnt every one do this? If the American Idol appearance boosted his profile, God blessed him in this way. He has been loyal and devoted to Juliana and obviously loves her dearly. Whatever they decide to live their lives is between the two of them. They cant live their lives to meet the expectations of the public, even if they have shared their story. Dont they deserve to pursue happiness in their lives as they see fit? The people who are directly involved seem to be working through this, shouldnt we let them be?

Everyone feels the heartbreak of what might have been in your story. I think we all weep for that. But - " life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday" according to Kahlil Gibran. We all want fairy tales and romance but that is not life. I have been with my high school sweetheart for 26 years and we have had our ups and downs and even now it can feel like a challenge. We try to meet each other where we are at in life - we cannot live in the past only move forward. You have much to offer the world. Perhaps your destiny is bigger than you even imagined.

Hi Juliana and Chris, i'm not here to judge or give my opinion about you. I just simply felt connected to your storie, because unfortunately It happened to me recently.

Me and John were happy for 8 years and were going to marry in 2 years. Everything was planned, although he was the dreamer one, big house, big family, he had a lot a friends, wanted to find a good job and be together as much as we could. He was so smart, extremely kind and hard worker.

Me... The only thing I was greatful to have was him, I didn't have ambitions or big dreams like him, because even if I couldn't have children I will be happy with just his love.

It's been a month or so and his heart failed for 45 minutes due to a rare condition on his heart that nobody knew about it, he is 26 years old almost 27 and he was very healthy.

That heart failure gave him a massive ischemic stroke with a several lesions in his brain. He was in comma for at least 2 weeks had pneumonia, brain edema and a lot of other complications...

The doctors keep saying that he will never going to be a person anymore, breath, talk, walk, see or eat alone. And they prepare us for his sudden death at any moment.

So he has been stable for a month and yesterday against all odds he's started to breath on his own without any life support.
His condition it's still really critical, the doctors don't see in him a person and there's a big probability of his heart fail again and this time they will not perform CPR.

They don't even want to spend hospital's money on a instrument similar to a pacemaker that could keep him alive for at least 5 years. They simply tell me that his neurological condition is not "compatible".

It's really unfair... they see numbers, money... not lives...

The doctors don't believe in any recovery, but he's strong and he is feeling everything, I touch him and he moves his arms with a lot of strenght and when I kiss him his lips move, like he was kissing me back.
Sometimes I'm sure he's staring at me and follow orders.
they don't believe me...


However, last week I had to leave the island were I lived and I went to work in another place, because I signed a stupid contract (before that happened) that won't let me quit my job and be near him, without facing serious consequences.

So I thought that my life was pretty bad back then, and when you think that nothing could ever go worse...

Well... it obviously can!

Now I'm alone in a place I never visited with a lot of people that I never saw before.

So I don't know what hurts me the most...

Is it the cruelty of feeling lonely?
is it the fact am losing the most important person on my life?
Is it because I can't see him or hear from him?

Or is it because I need an end or an answer?... so I could move on... I don't even know if it's possible to move on...

Everything I wanted was something that I could live with, even if he was going to be blind or even if he going to stay on a wheel chair forever, I could live with that.
The only thing I can't live with is the fact that he is alive and he doesn't know how much I love him...

I always believe that God gives the hardest battles to the stronger ones.

The only thing people don''t know about it... is that we need to suffer a lot to achieve that strenght and no matter how we reach that... it is never going to make sense without a closure.

I'm 100% sure that You two are some of the God's bravier soldiers.

we're suppose to recover from the death of someone, but how am I suppose to recover from a "loss" that it's likely to be breathing for a very long time...

Should I lose faith?
or should I keep fighting for that something that I still believe in?

I was just hopping that you could say something that make me feel better... because I really admire you and your beautiful soul Juliana.

I wish the best for the both of you, and the only thing I could ever said about your live... is that I really understand both of you, only because it happens to me too.
So nobody could ever know what it's feels like...

Thank you for sharing your story... Thank you for making me feel less alone in this mad world.

with love,

Paula

First of all,most people won't agree with me,but before you start going on your tirade about how I don't know what they're going through,how I can't judge,how I don't know them...sure,I don't know them personally,but neither do most of you.We all know what they let us know through the years.I'm not here to judge either of them,but when you let so many people inside your life,you also let their opinions inside your life,wherever you like it or not.As far as knowing what they're going through...I do know.I do.And it hurts so much,so,so,so much,but it's a joyous pain after all,because sometimes I still get a glimpse of someone I thought I was losing forever.It's heartbreakingly hard,and sometimes the memories become enough to freeze me for hours,but those rare moments are worth every second of pain.
I had,fromt he very first time I heard their story and saw the audition,the terrible sensation that this was going to happen.Why?Because men can't cope with this like we can.It's not derogaroty to men,and I'm not generalizing.I know there are men who can,but in a much smaller percentage than women,and that's not their fault,it's just how they are wired.As women,we are just built to be more willing to sacrifice,to adapt,and to nurture.Men don't.So to me it was clear from the beginning that a man,and a young one,wouldn't be able to cope with the situation forever.The loss of almost everything that made a person,the person you love,is too much for them.Personality,looks,habits,quirks,intimacy...everything is lost forever,and it's even harder for men to cope.Especially in a case like this,where he found himself going from the uglyish guy who scored an amazing,gorgeous and hot girlfriend,much above his level when it came to looks (can't say anything about personalities,as we don't personally know them,like most people here like to remark so much),to being a quite famous person,with new chances to improve his looks,surrounded by avaible women even more above his level than Juliana ever was,with a now forever disabled fiancè,who didn't look or act or talk like herself anymore.One one side,he did a lot,and he seem to have really tried,and when you think about it,can someone really blame him?
On the other hand...I made the opposite choice.I stayed,I soldiered through it,I sacrificed my 20s to take care of the person who was supposed to be my rock forever.Is it hard?Of course it is.I sometimes find myself wishing for the things I can't have from him anymore.But,those precious few moments I get to see him again,the actual him,the one I met so long ago,are enough to keep me going,after hearing for so long that he would just die,that he would never even be able to move again,or to talk,or to do anything on his own.I also learned to love and enjoy what he can now do,and the personality he now has.
So while I understand the need to move on,I can't help the feeling that he's taking the easy way out for reasons he might one day regret.I hope he never has to,but I'm afraid he will.

I just watched the video of Chris reaching you while you were in your coma. That kind of love never dies.

On a side note, about a year ago you mentioned that you used Latisse on your lashes. They were always what I noticed in your pics, and - thanks to you - I have been a happy Latisse customer ever since! I think they owe you a paycheque! ;- )

Hi Juliana (and Chris, this is sort of to you both in a way)
I really hope all the bad and negative words that people say or write, doesnt stick on you...
It´s like i want to apolegize to you for their behavior, i am ashamed to be a human beeing when i see all the hate that comes out from some people...
It´s been said so many times in the positive comments before but it can not be said to many times.
Your whole story, from the beginning, now and in the future will always be in my mind and heart.
You both seems like two wonderful, caring and really special human beeings...
People will always try to put other people down, and for som weird reason thinks that they have the right to.
Nothing is easy, and i can not say anything about how i would have done in your shoes, because a havent walked in them...

I just wish more people could be and think like you, and i just want to say i wish you both all the best in the future!
much love from Sweden <3

I was reading your story and yes is true when you have soul mate theirs nothing in the world that can change, but love is not a feeling.
Love is something more than that and I really believe that is what both of you have. I may not went through your situation, however, I found my other half. This man showed me that love was bigger than a feeling...he rescue my heart from the ashes of pain....He taught me to walk a journey that people may not understand...many people was involve an they were very opinionated...you shouldn't be with her because of this...or why you go out with that guy if he....everyone had something to say...many people involve could be very painful and it can be a combination for disaster.....
Although, stop for a little bit and both of you need to hear what is in your heart....no people, no family nobody, only you in you within...find in your heat what you feel for him.... and what you feel for her...don't be selfish to let him go just because you think that you are denying him the opportunity have a family because you may be breaking his heart....and you Chris you have a mature soul willing to understand that Love is within you and your heart...that you love her for who she is and no for what she can give as a woman...
Remember about the man who rescue my heart, he taught me that love is a commitment, not a feeling. Love is what gives you the strength to overcome the bad times and the joy and quiet times is when we are strengthened to spend on new challenges and grow .... Do not worry about popularity or fam it is what we Fret intoxicated ... by us ... Juliana and Chris ... And God will do

I just recently heard of your story and I must say that your story had me so interested almost the same way I was when Twilight first came out...
I believe it's because when we see a love so strong and so dear it makes us desire this and want this in our own lives you both are just simply amazing there is no other way to say it your mother too,
I can not imagine the trials that you all go through I can only offer my prayers...
I have to admit when I located your blog and read that you both are no longer together I cried it was like it effected me too ( weird thing to say)I was so sad because I feel your pain and I know it has to be so hard to let go.....Stay strong you have millions of people behind you and praying for you and a full recovery ..
You know you are one blessed lady just look around you the family by your side and Chris you are so loved always remember that..
My best wishes to all of you...

perdón por escribir en español espero que lo leas :)

Te conocí a ti y a chris por un vídeo que acabo de ver en facebook cuando audiciono en american idol en el 2011 si no me equivoco y vi su historia y me convovio mucho y mas por que a mi hermano (orita tiene 29 años) le paso algo similar como a ti

El un día venia de la casa de un amigo entonces cruzo un carretera y un taxi lo atropello duro casi un mes en coma y prácticamente lo daban por muerto los doctores y esta igual que tu comprometido mis ya tenia varias cosas de la boda y faltaban algunos meses para su boda la ex novia de el osea la que se iba a casar con mi hermano le juraba amor eterno y bla bla bla pero cuando despertó en el hospital los doctores dijeron que nunca mas se iba a levantar de la cama y cuando supieron eso mis papas ellos hablaron con ella con la ex novia de mi hermano y le explicaron y le dijeron que si se quería alejar de el no iba haber ningún problema pero ella se enojo por eso no se por que pero se ofendió total como ala semana saco una excusa absurda culpo a mis papas y no se que mas y sin decir nadamas se fue y dejo ami hermano solo.

gracias a dios mi hermano ya se recupero pero le quedo una secuela en la memoria y pues orita ya tiene una novia y es feliz

no se me dio ganas de contarte esta historia de mi hermano por pues en algunas cosas son similares a tu caso

Mira desconozco tu situación que tienes orita con chris pero espero que los 2 sea muy felices y yo estoy seguro que el te ama mas de lo que tu puedes llegar a ver o imaginar se nota pero tal vez tu no lo vez

el accidente de mi hermano fue en la madrugada cuando se murió michael jacksson

Espero que te vaya bien ;) saludos desde monterrey,Nuevo leon , mexico :)

I have followed you and Chris since AI, however I have never written a post before today. Initially I was drawn to your Mother's strength by following her journal about your journey. As you became stronger and were able to write the blog yourself, I was inspired by your strength and optimism for the future. You see I was going through a difficult time myself and your blog gave me the strength to carry on. I know I am not the only person you have helped and I want to thank you for what you have given me. I will carry your strength with me forever.

Julianna, I wish the best for you always. I am a firm believer that what we put out comes back to us. Just keep being the wonderful person you are and I know good things will come to you.

And please don't ever stop writing this blog because I need your words to help me carry on.

Sending love.

Juliana, I just wanted to say that at least for me, I do not come to your blog for gossip, I come because form hearing your story is it so beautiful to see somebody overcome their dark moments and progress through adversity, and you are doing that day by day. It is so wonderful to read your thoughts and catch more of your beautiful and strong personality (even during the moments when you might doubt your strength yourself). Therefore, I will follow your posts regardless of the outcome of specific events in your life. It is your mind, your words, your overcoming daily battles (and the little victories that grow, and slowly turn into triumphs, that keep me motivated and inspired) those are the things that draw me in. This is a difficult moment for you and Chris both, and I know you will come out of it stronger and ready for the world ahead. We all have our breakups and our lonely moments through life, and although we wish we all could be exempt from them, it happens to us all. But you will both continue to love each other and appreciate one-another's company, and in time you will love like that once again. I know your incredible friendship with him is for life, and in whatever way or shape it manifests itself it is beautiful, pure, and I wish you both the best.

Juliana, be strong and get better everyday. Try not to let the negative comments/people bring you down. I think you are still beautiful, because true beauty lies in the hidden heart and soul. Superficial beauty is just that, its just the surface, a façade and it will fade as people grow old. I wish you the best in the years ahead, may you always remember that you are loved by many. God bless you and your family ,Juliana Ramos. I will keep you in my prayers and I know you are going to be fine. Love from Malaysia.

For Me. What Happen To Juliana Is God's Plan, Don't You Think There Are Reasons Why God Did This? Well I Think This Is A Challenge For Chris How Long Can He Be Able To Love Juliana Or How Much Does Chris Really Love Her. What is there to break up your relationship For fame & money? Don't U Think it is a part of a plan to loose one of the top 24 in american idol so that you can take care of her and spend more time with her..... But Anyways I Wish The Both Of You Gudluck And Have A Happy Long Life! No offense.

Chris & Juliana, I've fall in love with this song and it's story this weekend, as my 16 moths old nephew just got sick in leukemi. Thank you wonderful sad story. From all the comments above i would like to ask you guys to not fall into others wish and dont spend your time pleasing (reply) this kind of people who has NOTHING to do with the two of you! You are both free do do whatever that makes YOU happy. I am not the one hoping you to get togheter again. I just wish you both the best out of the situation as it is now. For what more can we ask for? Happy endings are for idiots! keep dreaming! For us "normal" people there are so many roads to take and with that, you wont be able to fight or please each one. Sorry to say. Do whatever makes your heart happy and dont get upset for whatever people says. They just dont know better! Lots of love to you guys!!!
