Menopause at 43
Thursday, March 12, 2009
So as I woke up this morning in a pool of reality after a dreadful 3 weeks of wondering how come... I've come to realize that at 43 I will never have any children. And I got angry. I have turned my life around for the past almost 10 years now and I have overcome addiction, now weight control... but how do you overcome the fact that you will never become a MOM. I have a loving man in my life and I guess I was being hopeful that one day we would be a family.
I have accomplished and learned so much in this life's process that I was truly ready to experience the ultimate challenge. But Perimenopause as it is called confirmed to me this morning that this will not be a part of my life. What is a girl or woman to do when you feel on top of the world and still can't really get there?
I FEEL CHEATED!!
