All my life I’ve dreamed of being a mom one day, like most little girls, right? Well when I was 11, I was dx’ed with type 1…ok no big deal. Well ever since then MY MOTHER has vioced her opinion that I will never ever have children, that I will go on to get my PhD and just focus on my career, I can go ahead and get married, but I will never have children. I sat her down the other day to tell her that I do plan on having children, preferably sooner the better, and she tells me shes dissappointed in me, that she doesnt want any grandchildren and then goes on to think that it would be a huge mistake!
my non-d sisters on the other hand, she has no issues with them getting married and having kids.
she told me that she has “higher hopes” for me than for my sisters.
anyone else going through this? is this not the most rediculous thing you ever heard? Im trying to keep my head up but shes always saying things like this and I just try to ignore her and agree with her when Im really trying to get healthy enough to become a mommy.
