Somehow, I figured that if I [biggest avoider of pain, ever!] could commit myself to not blotting out the pain just because I could, that it would be a big first step towards being the selfless and giving parent/person that I desired to be. So I googled it and found my way to MDC, and the rest is history.
I've been an avid lurker since, and have become an irreparable birth/kid/ap/nfl enthusiast.
Oh yeah, I wasn't pregnant back when I was nineteen, but I am now! Somehow, I've been able to get over my posting shyness to participate, now that I'm an official [kind of] mama.
That moment so long ago was so surreally illuminating. I feel so grateful for that pregnancy 'scare,' it led me to so much learning and really, an enormous shift of my worldview.
