I'm sorry your mom was so insensitive. She sounds exactly like my dad (not that we talk about boobs!) but he at times says the stupidest hurtful things. I really don't think he has any concept about what he's done at times and I don't confront him. We only see him every few months so my whole family has just learned to deal with it. Racking it up to just getting elderly emoticon

Hi, I just wanted you to know that most of us has had this kind of situation. I am so happy you wrote to us. I felt like I had been stabbed when it happened to me. I'm sure your mom regrets saying it. Have you spoken to her about it ? I find that being open about these things really helps. You might be without boobs, but she still has a wonderful, brave and loving daughter. talk to you soon, . Smiley.-

Think before you speak has always been a good lesson. I am sure she didn't mean to be insensitive to you. I just thank the powers that be that I still have my mother. At 83 she is more than active but her memory will drive you nuts!! Hang in there.

Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass... It's about learning to dance in the rain.

Life's a gift.. Unwrap it!!!

It's all about Baby steps.

Some people, even Mothers, hubby's, friends and siblings can be insensitive to the max at times. Your right, they don't stop to think about what they say or just plain don't care.

Water is very important for us. We may, and I do, require more than the 8 glasses a day. The link goes to a water calculator I use to see what I need for my current weight. Mt requirement has dropped 9 ounces due to weight loss. Yipee!

My mother went for her mamagram last week and all I heard from her is now much it hurt. I told her I would love to feel that hurt again. She said" how do you think you could get one you don't have any boobs". Like I don't know that. My mother is 75 years old and very activity. Her mind is good but she does not think about what she says or even cares . It was like in one ear and out the other. I wanted to make her feel lucky that she can go for a mamagram. But guess I lost that one. Just wanted to share with my friends. Thanks.

Just give it away!!!
