Your story sounds almost exactly like mine. I came across this thread, now that all of the messages are aged between 1-3 years. I was hoping some of you might still be around. I just had my hysterectomy in October and I'm steadily going downhill. I know some challenges with adoption and surrogacy have made this even worse, but I'm struggling with depression now. We stopped our insurance after they paid for my surgery (it was $1,100 a month due to pre-exsitsting condition). I need counseling but we really can't afford it right now, as we just moved cross country. I contacted a local University with an amazing health care system and I'm hoping to get an appointment with them. It appears that it is free.
If you happen to see this reply, please contact me. I would love to connect and see how you are doing. I will watch for your reply"026.
Take care of yourselves. You're all lovely people and every day I ask myself why good people like us have to go through this. There is no answer and we will never know. That is also part of the process of 'accepting.'
