This is a hugely powerful, beautifully written personal essay in which you draw us into your world and vulnerably tell the truth of the thoughts that consume, thoughts that many others will recognize, along with the struggle of making such a life altering decision. You offer support free from judgement, acknowledgment of all the emotions that are in play and importantly a way forward that could lessen the pain and discomfort, and the difficulty of the days that are inevitably ahead no matter what choice is made. It's a powerful piece that I know many women will remember and sit with long after they first read it. Thank you for sharing it here.
