I have survived molestation, rape, abuse and even cancer. I know I am a stronger and wiser person as a result. Yet I struggle with crippling thoughts of being ‘less than’ a women due to the fertility issues my past has caused. It makes me feel broken; as if my abusers won by taking the only thing I ever wanted in this life – to bare a child. All the while I present an image of positivity and strength to those around me who say how ‘inspiring’ I am. This is my secret.
