Other/All/Unsure   GRRRRRR
Very short PDoc appointment today. We chatted about the idea of my going back to work. She thinks it would be good as long as I don't jump into the equivalent of a cement truck.

I will be 55 in a while. Don't celebrate Bdays for a lot of reasons. But my friends are just a year younger than me - my longest term friends - and 2 in particular are now putting in their last year before retirement. I went to University with one. Married with 2 kids. The other has 3 and all 5 have done well though at various stages of life. I met her my second year out of school as we moved to a community at the same time when we were all young and foolish. They will leave their jobs with full pensions as will their husbands.

My PDoc tried to make me feel better by saying that I did well considering where I started. Both friends came from 'normal' families. Squabbles and stuff but parents were supportive and siblings too. The kind of childhoods kids should have. They are both still amazingly close to mothers (and 1 Dad that is left) and with their siblings.

But it is not f*ck*ng FAIR!

You are correct, it isn't fair!
I have had to put my career on hold in order to care for my son. It hurts when I think about not being able to accomplish my goals. I thought by now I would be professionally and financially successful. I thought my children would be experiencing the typical carefree teenage life. Instead we deal with the harsh reality that my son was harmed and we struggle to make each day positive.
The thing that gets me through is hope. I hope for a brighter future.
Sitting with you now. You are not alone. You are understood.

Yes, it isn't fair. It's hard for us to release the anger and the resentment about the people and things that have made our life so difficult. We hear all of you.
