You may not realize how insulting you sound to those of us with serious, chronic genetic conditions.
My life is more than my deformity. I do not let it rule me. I hurt, I suffer, I also work and serve and pray and sing and laugh and make beautiful things and cook and love my husband and love my parents and teach and volunteer and pet my dog and have friends and annoy people on the internet and am in awe of the wonderful young man who calls me "mother".
I love my children if his is infirm or smart or dumb or healthy or injured or sick - he is a precious gift from God. My husband and I were open to life, thank God we were not afraid of my condition or that fear would have robbed us of the best kid on earth.
You seem to have a very positive personality.
Ever hear of Munchausen's Syndrome?
Some people instead of having a network that helps, find that they have a network that works overtime to drain them, to plant the maximum amount of negativity, to actively sabotage them, to work behind their backs to hurt as much as possible. And by the time that they realize what is going on, it is time to die.
