When you think of love, what is the first thing that comes to your mind? Happiness? Starting a family? Butterflies in your belly? I thought all of those too. Until it nearly destroyed me as a person.
When I was 18, I was told I'd never be able to have kids. That's the most heartbreaking thing a young woman could ever be told, when all she's ever wanted is to be a great mother one day. I looked into many options, but because I was so young I only did the research, and never went any further than that. Turns out, the doctor was wrong.
