Sometimes I see images and words on PostSecret that resonate with me so much they make me cry. This one did it today:
For me, it's not because of chemo. It's because of general health, age, finances, unattractiveness, the inability to find anyone whom I love and who desires me...
Adoption isn't an option, either, between the health and finances, too.
I know I'm not alone in feeling this. I know there are women everywhere who feel this emptiness, too. When I see my friends - happy with their partners and families - I get that feeling of basic existential failure very acutely. No matter how smart I am, as a human animal, I am a failure. Totally irrelevant.
Some days are harder than others. What can I say?
