My husband and I just found out that I have ovarian cancer. The doctors think they can treat it without the use of chemo, however we are NEVER going to be able to have more children. We are blessed with 1, but at the age of 22, I never thought I would face a forever without multiples of children.
To those of you who have been there... how do you handle it? It's been a few weeks now, and, to be honest, this is the first time I've really said anything about it. I feel like there is a strange, empty void that I just can't fill. I feel as though I am missing a part of myself I didn't even know existed, and now that it's gone I am never getting it back.
When I was pregnant we didn't find out til I was 5 months; I was so sick I ended up in the hospital and they had to induce. I always thought I'd get another chance to make it right, and have all the joys of being pregnant- not just half of them.
How do you do it??

How? One day at a time. Sorry
