Seriously about the sleep- I nursed and coslept, so feedings consisted of popping a boob in the kid’s mouth and falling back asleep. I was the only mom I knew who didn’t get sleep deprived. Lazy feeding ftw!
Response to After Battling Cancer, This Brave Girl Used Her Make-A-Wish Experience To Speak Out Against Sexual Abuse:
No. I know many, many survivors (and I’m one), and if you actually deal with what happened to you, there’s no reason to expect ‘repercussions’. Oh, and we’re mostly in our late 20s/early30s, and shockingly enough, nothing has hit any fans- we’ve changed and adapted and accepted that our abuse will always inform our personalities- but we’re all doing well. Maybe if you spend your 20s pretending everything is a-ok you’ll reach a breaking point later on…but if you accept your past and work with it, not against it, you will can *actually* be ok.
Sadly, lots of people. Kids and animals die ever year from being left in cars. :/
