I am just posting to say hello. It is somehow so painful because if I am posting here then it means I have to finally tell myself that " I am like you" and I am child-less. I never could let myself believe that I was like this. I was a person instead who would say "if i do have children" or " if i cant end up having children". But recently it is confirmed I had early menopause when I was 43. I am now 47 - i had my head in the sand all those years.
Now it is out.
It is so isolating - i dont belong to the mums, I dont belong to the Childfree and I also up until now couldnt belong to the child-less becuase no one who is child-less wants to commit to being in that group they are still in the waiting place and so sitting down to chat about how it feels isnt an option. Infact a child-less person seems to run from another child-less person because they dont want to identify with that group and confirm and feel, as I do joining here, that this is no officially who they are FOREVER.
My best friend just told me in email yhat she has had twins - she never even let me know she was pregnant. I have so many mixed emotions about it all. I feel weridly betrayed and like something I trusted and thought was solid has shattered apart.
anyway .. just to say hello and I am like you. xx
